Learning > Penneshaw Site

This is a small site that has mixed age groups together. What a rich environment this provides! Children have many opportunities to learn through interactions with more skilled peers, develop co-operative skills and a respect and appreciation of children of all ages.

Due to small numbers the programs and routines are flexible. Individual needs can be readily accommodated and opportunities to extend on children' interests are utilised.

Teaching life skills of confidence, organisation, persistence, emotional resilience and getting along are woven throughout the daily play program and are a strong focus.

Parents are consulted and encouraged to share their expectations and goals for their children. These are incorporated into the individual plans for each child.

Consistent staff create a family like atmosphere where strong relationships exist and where each child's achievements, no matter how big or small, are noticed and celebrated.
