Our Vision.

Our vision for children's learning is based on the principles of the EYLF of belonging which is central to being and becoming as it shapes who children are and who they can become. Being recognises the significance of the present and children being in the here and now. Becoming emphasises the collaboration of educators, families the community and children to support and enhance their connection and capabilities to actively participate in their society.

Transition to School Program.

At Peakhurst Early Learning Centre we have developed a transition to school program which begins as soon as your child walks through the front door. All children in the Alkira room will be involved in this learning journey. While all children develop at different rates, some basic skills need to be developed before starting school. Key factors to beginning school as identified by the Department of Education, Principals, and Teachers include:

Critical Thinking/Problem solving
Problem-solving is the capacity to think through and resolve situations where an answer may not be obvious. Critical thinking means figuring out how to solve a problem and make a decision, it requires open-mindedness and thinking about others' points of view.

Independent Learning/Agency
Children who have confidence in their ability to learn will be more motivated to obtain their learning goals. Supporting critical thinking and problem-solving skills is likely to enhance a child's belief in their abilities.

Creativity is a way of thinking, acting or making that is original.

Resilience is being able to bounce back from stress, challenge, tragedy, trauma, or adversity. When children are resilient, they are braver, more curious, and more adaptable. These factors are important factors that we have been working with the children in our program along with small group goals, projects and individual goals. This will be supported with our Transition to School Guide which is handed out to all families with a child going to school the following year.

Extra Curricular Activities.

At Peakhurst Early Learning Centre we are always looking for new learning experiences. Each year we offer a range of extra curricular activities to enrich the childrens learning.
