BOWRAL STREET CHILDCARE

Our Lifestyle

A balanced mix of indoor and outdoor play, structured learning time, music and movement.

OUR DAY

Happiness multiplies when you share it.

At Bowral Street Childcare we put your child’s welfare and wellbeing first with our specially designed routine that guides our days and ensures a well-rounded, inclusive routine. Our daily routine has a balanced mix of indoor and outdoor play, structured learning time, music, and movement so your children are truly immersed in a diverse and well-balanced day of learning. This also allows for the children’s meals to be spread out nicely throughout the day and that children are given sufficient time to rest and recharge. It also allows ample time for handwashing, nappy changes, sunscreen application, cleaning tasks, and other essential parts of the day. We want you to know that your children are our first priority!

Our Juniors (aged 18 months to 3 and a half years) have a routine focused on play-based learning, in line with our understanding that brain development occurs through play. We also introduce your children in this age category to self help skills, such as plate clearing after lunch and being responsible for their own items such as hats and shoes. Our Juniors usually have a longer sleep time than the older children, and we also support your children’s toilet training, before their transition to the Preschool Room with the older children.

Our Preschoolers still enjoy plenty of play and discovery, and in the Preschool Room we build upon your children’s learning and self help skills in preparation for Big School. All of our Preschoolers enjoy a wide range of age appropriate learning and interactions, and each day we do a School Readiness Program for children who start school the following year. We still make sure that our preschoolers have enough rest time during the day and this can mean that those who want to take a nap are encouraged to do so while the other kids enjoy some meditation time and other quiet activities.
