Early education and care programs tailored to infants and children up to primary school age
Welcome to Our Early Childhood Learning Centres
Our early childhood learning centres offer long day early education and care
programs for young children from 6 weeks-of-age through to school age and to the end of
primary schooling with before school, after school and vacation care.
At Banora Point and Kingaroy Early Learning Centres, we believe our educators are a mentor
and guide to your children. Your child will be able to explore their interests and develop their
skills, with our educators there to lead them through programs and activities designed to
further their education and skills.
Reggio Emilia Approach
We aspire to emulate the Reggio Emilia Approach, where educational philosophy is based on the image of the child focusing on the centrality of the hundred languages belonging to every human being. Each of the learning spaces we offer to young children is full of opportunities and possibilities to encounter many types of materials, many expressive languages, many points of view, working actively with hands, minds and emotions in a context that values the expressiveness and creativity of each child in the group.
To embrace the Reggio Emilia principles, our educators attempt to organise so they are more aesthetically pleasing to offer a richer and varied choice of materials. We do this with the use of white paint, mirrors, natural light and information panels to communicate the joys of learning and sense of belonging. The addition of an art studio also provides a space for focused project work. We organise shelving with a variety of found and purchased materials. The addition of household furniture also creates a more homelink atmosphere.
