Our Programs - Our Program

Bolton Point Child Care Centre offers a program based on The National The Early Years Learning Framework. Indoor and outdoor play opportunities are provided to the children daily allowing to develop fundamental skills and be involved in environmental sustainable practices including watering the plants using water from the water tank, feeding scraps to the worms and exploring their natural environment. The centre promotes a play based approach to learning which incorporates children's interests and ideas.

We understand the importance of spontaneous experiences and intentional teaching so that children are able to value important life skills. These experiences include but are not limited to road safety, fire safety health and nutrition and stranger danger. Each day families are able to see what their child has been involved in through photos they are able to view on the slide show. The centre also has a day book which shows something of interest throughout the day.

Each day is different so it could include the children's voice on a current project, a special event, or an intentional teaching activity to develop a skill within the room. Children are invited to join in adding and sharing to the contents of this book.

Children's Progress Observations are completed on your child on a monthly basis and is shared with families bimonthly via email for you to see your child's progress and interests at the centre. The centre provides a holistic approach to programming and all room educators have the opportunity to be a part of the child's learning journey.

Children from all rooms at the centre go on regular local excursions to places within the community. Excursions have included visits to "Mainly Music" at the Playgroup held at the Salvation Army (next door), a visit to the reserve next to the centre for a picnic and meeting residences of the local nursing home at the park. The centre also works collaboratively with Fennell Bay Public School as they visit with some primary school children during NAIDOC week to share Aboriginal stories, art and dancing with the children. Incursions are also held at the centre throughout the year with visits from a variety of different backgrounds and skills to perform and educate the children. These include but are not limited to the local Fire Brigade, Magicians, an interactive reptile show, a hands on Science experience and the Dentist.
