  Senior Learning Room
‘School Readiness’ Room (4-5 years)

Our program for 4-5 year olds encompasses a wide variety of planned experiences based on the objectives of the program. We offer your child experiences in literacy, numeracy, science, music, and art, to name a few. These are based on individual observations.

The focus in our ‘Senior Learning Room’ is on preparing the children for kindergarten and a smooth transition to school. We aim to develop each child’s social skills and arm them with the skills for thinking, problem solving, independence and other social skills needed for their future life in and out of school.

Children partake in a wide array of projects, during the year. The children explore various subject matters including road safety, recycling, science projects, and nature, to name a few. At Wakefield Early Learning Centre we provide an environment in which your child can learn in a stimulating, safe and supportive environment.

At lunch time children eat in the dining area to enjoy a fresh, cooked lunch. This is a wonderful opportunity for the children to socialise and encourage one another to eat certain meals they may not normally experience. After lunch the children enjoy the centre’s library area before returning to their learning rooms for a sleep/rest time In the afternoon the children continue to enjoy our centre’s preschool program before enjoying our large natural playground area outside in the afternoon. Afternoon tea and late afternoon tea is provided to all children prior to families returning to the centre for pickup. Our centre is open from 7.00am until 6pm; providing an educational long day care centre service to all families.

Each child will have a personalised portfolio to record and visually demonstrate to families the development of your child. Their Portfolio will contain observations, photos, examples of your child’s work, as well as regular dialogue of your child’s day.

At Wakefield our team love to involve parents and keep you up-to-date by providing overviews, parents letters, visual daily journals and a daily visual slide show of your child’s day.
