3-year-old activity group

Our 3-year-old activity group has been designed especially for 3-year-olds and follows the Victorian Early Years Learning and Development Framework. It offers a wonderful opportunity for children to play and work together as their independence grows. By the end of the year, your child will be ready to launch into four-year-old kinder.

Each session has around 20 children. There is a mix of structured and non structured time. Structured time might include stories, songs, or incursions. Children eat their packed lunch together which is great for their independence with lunch boxes, packets and containers, and which also leads to non-structured conversation. Each session there are different activities available for children to choose in the less structured times. These are both indoors and outdoors and are themed to the children’s interests.

STAFF

As a small centre our wonderful staff, Lily and Liza, really get to know each child well, providing a nurturing environment and catering to lots of different interests.

Lily has many years of experience in childcare. She always takes the time to chat to parents about how their children are going and we love her for her creative ideas and huge personality. Liza has a very genuine warmth and really draws each child out. 

Lily and Liza have run this group together for some years and both have a Diploma in Children’s Services.

How to enrol

We are now taking expressions of interest for 2022. Children must have turned 3 to attend – if a child turns 3 during first or second term they can commence then if we have spaces available.  Contact us to arrange a tour or to request an expression of interest.
