A day in the Wallaby 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 in the Wallaby room are aged from 3 -5 years. We enjoy 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. We have a morning meeting where we discuss weather, days of the week Morning tea is offered at 9:00am and consists of fresh fruit, yoghurt, muffins, banana bread and crackers and cheese. After morning tea we do our morning group time where we do our welcome song, weather chart, letterland and get our sunscreen on ready for outdoor play.
We then do our news sessions and then enjoy a healthy hot meal for lunch at 11:45am. After we eat we have our rest time where some of us sleep and others do quiet school readiness activities.
After rest time we do concept group time where we do a story, song or music, followed by afternoon tea. Afternoon tea is served at 2:30pm 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 4:30pm everyone meets again in the Lorikeet room for family grouping and enjoy a late snack.
