Our Groups & Programs
Nursery Section (Banksia and Wattle)
We have a nursery section with plenty of inside and outside space for age appropriate learning experiences that encourage children to explore, supporting their natural curiosity, and challenges them to extend their developmental skills.
In our nursery section we focus on building attachments with children and their families, using principles from the Circle of Security approach. The nursery is made up of two groups, the Banksia group has children aged up to 2 years and the Wattle group has children ranging from about 18 months to 3 years of age.
Preschool Section (Kurrajong and Blue Gum)
The Preschool section is made up of two preschool groups (3 to 4 years and 4-5 years) led by experienced early childhood teachers who oversee each group and their educational program, ensuring strong attachments are formed with families and children.
The educators use a range of teaching strategies to engage the children in exploring and thinking, extend their investigative skills to build their knowledge bank and guide children as they negotiate the complexities of social play. At Annette’s Place we provide an interest based curriculum that is planned in response to children’s interests and strengths, while providing a balanced range of developmentally appropriate activities and experiences which prepares children for school and further learning.
Out of School Hours Care (Jarrah)
We provide After School Care and Vacation Care for children in infants and primary school. Out of School Hours Care is led by an experienced educator who plans and implements age appropriate programs based on children’s interests and an educational rationale. We operate under the Education and Care Services National Regulations.
We focus on providing a fun and interactive program where children have the opportunity to participate in both individual and group experiences. At After School Care the children enjoy a healthy afternoon tea before participating in a variety of activities. There is also the option for completing homework throughout the afternoon. During Vacation Care the children regularly go on excursions in addition to the highly regarded program we offer on site.
