Our programmes at Acorn Early Learning Centre are designed to be fun and stimulating and to provide your child with rich experiences in a safe, happy and nurturing environment. Our teachers will work hard to ensure your child’s individual needs and interests are acknowledged and fostered.
3 months - 2.5 years
In our Tui Room we provide a nurturing environment where your little one can grow and explore. The room leads out to our wonderful back yard, which is filled with outdoor equipment, playground areas, a sandpit and garden. Each week a Playball coach visits the Tui children to develop the building blocks of sport and physical fitness, these are at no extra cost and the children love it!
Every day we make sure you receive information on what happened during your child’s time with us, this includes the practical things like toileting information, how long they slept and what they’ve eaten. You also get to find out about the fun and exciting experiences your child has had during the day!
2.5 - 5 years
In this room we recognise that play is the children’s work, so we value structure and routines and incorporate our separate ‘Transition to School’ programme for the children who turn 4. The children in this room engage in all areas of learning where they develop independence and creativity, explore literacy and experience practical numeracy.
Our ‘Transition to School’ programme provides an opportunity for children to be involved in a variety of experiences that will ensure a smoother transition into the classroom environment. Four year olds are encouraged to participate every morning for 40 minutes. During this time children are offered opportunities to develop their literacy, mathematical, social and fine and large motor skills.
