Welcome to the children and families in the Wombat room!

We encourage a warm, caring, informal and fun environment for all children and families. A program of individual, age/stage developmentally appropriate experiences will be provided so as to meet the needs of each child.

Throughout the day there are a mix of active and quieter activities for the children to choose from. Individual choice plays a very important role in our program, especially in terms of the development of each child's self-confidence. We encourage the children to try as much, or as little, as they choose, and we respect their need for flexibility, often changing, or adding to the program, as the children require.

It would be great if we could access some information regarding each family's potential input into our program. Your skills / resources are invaluable to us and we ask you to think about things you might like to share with us, at some stage during the year. This doesn't necessarily mean "doing" something for the children, it can also mean things like bringing in junk materials to use in the children's artwork etc. Whatever you are happy to do or give, we would be happy to accept.

If you need any further info, please feel free to ask the staff at any stage.
