A day in the Echidna room at Oxford Falls Early Learning Centre
On arrival you will be welcomed by our warm and friendly staff. We combine for family grouping in the Lorikeet room until 8am, where children of all ages can play together and enjoy time with the educators. Breakfast is offered before 8am, including a selection of fruit, yogurt, toast and cereal.
The children enjoyed outdoor or indoor play where they participate in a variety of activities combining planned activities based on the children’s interests, abilities and needs as well as spontaneous activities initiated by the children. The babies are aged from 6 weeks to 24 months. Morning tea is offered at 9:00am and for the babies asleep morning tea is kept for later. Morning tea consists of fresh fruit, yoghurt, muffins, banana bread and crackers and cheese. Our younger Echidnas are offered freshly made purees.
At 11:00am our Echidna’s have lunch. Lunch is a healthy hot meal and for those asleep, lunch is kept for them to enjoy later.
The babies enjoy some more play time, followed by afternoon tea. Afternoon tea is served at 2:00pm and consists of fresh fruit, fresh vegetables and a variety of healthy and delicious snacks including fresh made hummus and flat bread and freshly made muffins and oat bars.
As the day draws to an end, the children are picked up at all different times. At 5:00pm we meet again in the Lorikeet room for family grouping and enjoy a late snack.
