Play is children’s important work. It is the vehicle for children to develop vital physical, social, cognitive and emotional skills. Play helps children make sense of their world and practice skills such as empathy and resilience.

Your child will have the opportunity to learn through a range of play-based activities and having fun.

Relationships with adults and other children are critical in children’s early years. The relationship your child develops with their educator is a pathway for your child to experience separation, develop new relationships and practice their social and emotional skills.Working together, you can help your child gain the best possible early learning experience and ensure your child’s experience is consistent with your values and culture.
