Here at Play2Learn…
We are passionate about nature-based play and believe in the environment as the child’s third teacher, helping them learn through their own creativity and curiosity. Throughout our program we take a holistic approach to our practice as we recognise and support each child as an individual person with different needs and learning styles.
Our mission is to create a positive, stimulating, safe, natural environment filled with all the necessary tools for your child to be excited to learn, explore and grow. Children have a natural sense of curiosity and will learn best through play in which they are totally engaged, this gives them hands-on experiences to practice, experiment, predict, make mistakes and achieve. Children at this age are only just starting to learn how to make friendships, share and label their feelings, read others' expressions and emotions and demonstrate empathy.
Play Based Learning
Play-based learning provides opportunities for children to actively and imaginatively engage with people, objects and the environment. Symbolic representation is a critical aspect. When playing, children may be organising, constructing, manipulating, pretending, exploring, investigating, creating, interacting, imagining, negotiating and making sense of their worlds. It promotes the holistic development (physical, social, emotional, cognitive and creative) of a child and depending on how it is utilised, may also support a broad range of literacy and numeracy skills. The teacher's role in scaffolding play is pivotal.
At Play2Learn Kindy, we believe that every child deserves the best start in life and the opportunity to reach their highest potential. We embrace a collaborative approach that aims to create positive bonds between parents, childcare providers, and children. Our childcare center proudly values safety, education, nature, play-based learning, creativity, companionship and kindness as the core of our philosophy.
We strive to foster an atmosphere that allows each child to learn through exploration and imagination while providing nurturing care in a secure environment. It is our mission to make each day spent with us an unforgettable learning experience for your child, one filled with happiness and discovery!
