Each day we provide a write up of all the fun things the children participate in each day. In our Penguins room we focus on learning through play. Children’s ideas and interests are the foundation of our program as learning through familiar topics is a great way to include education and keep the children focused. We also plan our experiences each day to help children to achieve the five Early Years Learning Framework Outcomes. You will receive a midyear report assessing your child’s learning against these outcomes:
- Outcome 1: Children have a strong sense of identity
- Outcome 2: Children are connected with and contribute to their world
- Outcome 3: Children have a strong sense of wellbeing
- Outcome 4: Children are confident and involved learners
- Outcome 5: Children are effective communicators
These learning outcomes have been designed to ensure children are prepared for a future of successful learning.
We go through an average of 4-5 nappies per day. We have set nappy change times throughout the day but as most children do, they often soil themselves once the fresh nappy is on which can increase the nappies we go through each day. Nappies can be placed in your child’s designated section in our nappy change room, please check your child’s nappy supply regularly to ensure they don’t run out.
Most children start toilet training at some time throughout the year whilst in the Penguins room. When your child starts displaying signs of being ready to toilet train please let us know and we will support them through the process while at school also. We believe that consistency between home and school is important in achieving milestones.
At Scribblz we closely follow best practice as outlined by Red nose (formerly SIDS and kids). For your child this means we cannot put them to bed with toys, a bottle, heavy blankets, a pillow, teething necklace or a dummy chain.
Children have particularly sensitive skin that needs to be protected from the sun’s harmful rays. We require all children to wear sun smart clothing that cover their shoulders. There is sunscreen available in the foyer for you to put on your child each morning, our educators will then re-apply throughout the day. There is a stamp located next to the sunscreen in the foyer for you to place on your child’s hand so that we know they already have sunscreen applied.
