Program and Curriculum

At Birralee our play-based program is designed around indoor and outdoor areas where children can freely choose to play in their area of interest.  This is a unique program where children have the opportunity to extend on the gross motor development and social interaction while being challenged to engage in a variety of learning opportunities.

This indoor/outdoor learning environment is made possible as Birralee has 5 educators with the children at all times, which is a higher staff ration than is required by regulations.  This set up allows educators to be available to children both indoors and outdoors throughout the day.

To enhance learning opportunities all children are grouped in to age-specific small groups.  Children remain in these groups through out the calendar year.

Each day our program includes small group times with these groups for literacy, language, numeracy and music experiences.  These small group experiences occur every day.  We also provide a progressive morning tea to give children the opportunity to take responsibility and develop independence in a social environment.

Following lunch we have a quiet learning environment including fine motor and manipulative experiences and school readiness program. After quiet time has finished children are encouraged to enjoy the outdoor environment where there is a sandpit, obstacle courses, arts and crafts and imaginative play areas.

Children’s learning is continuously documented and their Learning Portfolio is presented to families regularly using Storypark.
