At Woodstock, our children are encouraged to be thinkers, explorers, communicators and problem solvers. Children are active participants in our play-based program which supports their social, physical, emotional and cognitive development, and nurtures their language and literacy skills. We value the role of the environment as a ‘third teacher’, and incorporate natural play spaces in both the indoor and outdoor areas. We are passionate about our diverse curriculum which ensures inclusivity for all children.
Indoor Play Areas
Children have the opportunity to engage with a variety of play spaces which are planned weekly according to the interests, goals and strengths of the children, and inspired by the family and local community. Play spaces include loose parts, socio dramatic play, creative arts, language and literacy centres, STEM and construction.
The outdoor play area welcomes children’s exploration and promotes a deep understanding of each child’s role in caring for the natural environment. In this space children learn to contribute to and become connected with, their world.
In this space children’s senses are evoked through sand play, water play and gardening. They develop gross motor skills and spatial awareness when climbing the obstacle course, riding their bikes and playing ball games.
School readiness skills are continuously being developed throughout our services from the moment
children enter our doors. Independence, resilience, sense of agency and self-help skills are
supported throughout the day. In addition to this, in the year before school, children engage in a
planned school readiness program designed by a team of early childhood leaders. This program
- Language and literacy skills
- Numeracy skills
- Fine motor coordination and skills
- Concentration and emotional maturity
- Social maturity and independence
The school readiness program is integrated into indoor and outdoor play enabling children of all ages
to further develop these skills.
