Kids Academy Early Learning Centre provides a comprehensive curriculum which addresses the needs of each child. Programs are based on the Early Years Learning Framework. The program reflects the Centre’s philosophy, and aims to assist parents in the educational upbringing of their children.
Kids Academy programs are designed to encourage children to be actively involved in the learning process, to experience a variety of developmentally appropriate activities and materials, and to pursue their own interests within a group setting. Above all, the program will provide experiences that support and stimulate children’s learning in a manner appropriate for each individual, as well as for the group as a whole.
All activities and experiences are linked to centre goals, group goals, individual goals, philosophy, group and individual evaluations. Parents are encouraged to comment on and provide ideas to enhance the program based on their child's current interests.
Our aim is to provide different types of play and sensory experiences using interesting materials, identifying children's interests and needs to support their development. The program will foster individual uniqueness, self esteem, independence and cater for all learning areas. The program is designed to stimulate and develop each child's sense of self, communication, thinking, physical, social, feeling, creative and spiritual potential.
An inclusive program is provided, catering for children of all abilities and accommodating their social and cultural backgrounds.
Parents as Partners
To ensure that our programs are meeting the needs of your family, we encourage you to become actively involved within the Kids Academy program. Kids Academy believes that the most positive environment exists when parents and the Centre work together as partners and therefore your comments and suggestions are always welcomed and valued and most importantly acted on.
Kids Academy endeavour to assist children to be happy, responsible, and co-operative participants in the program through positive, consistent, non-threatening teaching techniques. The behaviour guidance techniques used by Kids Academy staff centre around positive reinforcement, positive role modelling, intervention techniques and redirection.
Extra Curricular Activities
Kids Academy offers a range of extracurricular programs that you may choose for your child to participate in. These may include kinder dance, drama and language lessons. Please see the Centre Director for further information. In addition invite visitors to the Centre at regular intervals. We believe that such events are an important part of the program as they expand each child’s experience and understanding through a variety of real-life opportunities.
