We believe that children can and should have an active role in their education. While some of our instruction takes place indoors, our Nature Play sessions offer opportunities for our children to explore, think, adapt and learn without adults directing the course of their discoveries. Similarly, we use the Moving Smart program to expose children to the neurological benefits of movement. The highly transferable skills they acquire from these activities will be used long after they transition out of our care.
Our Points of Difference
Cradle to Crayons stands out as a Bundaberg childcare provider for all of the following reasons:
We are the only Forest Learning & Bush Kindergarten in the Wide Bay region, with a 14,500m adjoining block of land to the rest of our facility. We allow your child to learn, play and explore in a supervised forest environment.
Our kindergarten program is Queensland Government approved and taught by an ACECQA approved early childhood teacher. We have a dedicated classroom for children aged 4 to 6 years old.
We use the Moving Smart program to encourage healthy movement and activities that help build your child’s intelligence and develop their cognitive skills.
All of our educators are trained in the Abecedarian Approach by our on-site 3a trainer and coach. They attend an annual refresher course to keep their skills up to date.
RECONCILIATION ACTION PLAN
We are committed to enhancing our teaching and learning activities for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children in our community. Our curriculum celebrates Indigenous culture with engaging lessons on the histories and traditions.
