Gumnut Room – 2 to 3 ½ years

rainforest room

Gumnut room caters for up to 16 children per day with 4 early childhood trained educators lovingly guiding their development. Additional educators are present on days where children with additional needs attend.

In Gumnut room educators aim to foster the children’s sense of self and independence as they explore and investigate their environment and learn to play cooperatively with other children.

Each child is designated a focus teacher who aims to guide their individual interest and development while incorporating the Australian curriculum, The Early Years Learning Framework. Early Childhood Theorists and Aboriginal pedagogy. This is tracked through observations and compiled into a Portfolio of each child, a wonderful keepsake of their early years. Focus teachers work with families to learn about children’s interest at home and goals or areas of focus they might have. We feel strongly that a positive link between a child’s home and UKC is crucial for optimal learning and development.
