Why Choose us?
Family is the first place where the child learns about people and the world around them. Bringing our family into this Early Years Learning Services elucidates importance of how we have essentially understood the pivotal role of families in the child’s life. There’s a beautiful focus on the growth of the child at our centre and that’s what’s so endearingly special about our centres.
We are believers of ensuring that the children have a good sense of belonging, being and becoming through our centre setup. Our centres have zones that focus on the child’s well-being ie. safety, learning numbers, learning shapes, reading zone, colour zone and story place.
Apart from this the activities ensure that the children are ingrained with a high sense of rootedness and belonging to the community and the place they live. This local context then helps them understand the regional, national or international contexts later in life. Our curriculum framework prepares the child in the foundational early years to become a better learner. The transition is smooth for the kids of our centre to move into school life with adaptiveness and eagerness to learn more.
Learn Smart Early Learning Centres have established within their centres a love for curiosity, play, reasoning and awareness with the immediate environment that impacts the child. We amplify the fact that children are inherently curious and therefore our features; be it facilities provided or curriculum designed, brings out the curious nature that anticipates the emergence of thinking, questioning and understanding.
The foundational early years for the children, educators, parents and us as a centre are through the strengthening of the meaningful experiences that the children undergo every day here. Watch your children become independent, social and cheerful beings!
The Belonging, Being and Becoming theme is concurrent to the EYLF of childhood education as espoused by the NQS of Australian Education and our childhood educators are thoroughly indoctrinated into the guidelines of the same.
