Programme

In Caterpillars we encourage child initiated learning through play and structured experiences. Teachers observe a child’s interest and disposition, and develop learning opportunities on these interests. Each day different learning opportunities are available including sensory centred play, art, music, dance and interacting with the outdoors.  Kindy Cottage encourages independence and acknowledges individual learning styles of each child. If a child has a sibling in the older age group there are opportunities during the day for the children to spend time together.

Morning tea is available from 9.30am and lunch is at 11.30am. Children are encouraged to be independent at the dining table,  sit on chairs, and use cutlery and crockery. The daily routines for sleeping and feeding are the same as those at home. Children are able to sleep or rest in their own full size cot.
