Program

The program is flexible and varied for the children in care and aims to provide opportunities for rest and relaxation, physical activities, building and construction and art and craft as well as providing a ‘home away from home’ in which the children’s physical, emotional and social needs are considered and catered for. The children engage in positive interactions that help to foster personal responsibility and risk taking.

The program is guided by the interests and ideas of the children, My Time Our Place Framework and the National Quality Standards with invitations to families for input being encouraged.

Children are encouraged to bring spare clothes to feel more at home and allow for free messy play during the sessions. A broad brimmed hat is a necessity.
