Pre-School Readiness Program
It’s Time for Pre-School Readiness Learning at Bumblebee
The Pre-School Readiness Program introduces children to concepts of pre-writing, pre-maths, pre-science and pre-reading through a fully comprehensive program. The children have a choice between varieties of activities. This includes painting and manipulative activities such as play-dough and threading. These Pre-School activities develop fine motor skills, pre-writing skills, creativity and encourage role play.
Fitness Awareness and Music Lessons
Pre-School children participate in a physical fitness program. This develops an understanding of how to keep their bodies healthy and improve skills with movement, balance and control. Furthermore, children take part in professional music lessons twice a week where the Early Years Learning Framework is reflected in the outcomes planned for the weekly lessons.
Imagination and Creativity are Developed
Children look through books, complete puzzles and take part in construction activities. These activities encourage creativity, role play and strengthen hand and finger muscles.
Outside Play with Mixed Ages
Outside play is an important Pre-School activity and includes a wide variety of activities. These include sandpit play, obstacle courses, ball skills, running and climbing. These encourage role play, social interactions and develops hand and eye coordination. The outside play allows for the children to interact with and play with children older and younger than themselves.
We’re available from early morning and into the evening
Our child care for all ages is available from 6.30 a.m. – 6.30 p.m. Monday to Friday, except gazetted public holidays. This is to allow for working parents who need to start early to bring their child in order to start work on time. Breakfast is provided before 7.30am. Also, if your work commitments require you to have later care, a late afternoon snack is provided as well as all other meals. There’s no extra charge for these meals. The centre operates 52 weeks a year.
