Here at Kidz Retreat we run a few extra programs alongside the room programs, such as;
Arts and Crafts program
We have an additional educator who holds her Diploma in Children Services and Care who designs and facilitates an Art and Craft program; catering for children within our Nursery 2, Toddlers and Kindergarten rooms. Children are invited to make a master piece with support from the educator with a maximum of 5 children at a time, depending on the ages of the group. Although all children within the Centre are invited to complete Art in their rooms alongside their educators each day, this program is designed for interment education, focusing on children’s fine/gross motor skills and imagination.
Each term we invite a teacher/coach/trainer/instructor to facilitate a 30minute lesson within each of our age groups. Some of these incursions are, but not limited to; a Dance teacher, Music Teacher, Tennis Coach, Children’s Yoga instructor and much more. Not only do these activities support children to have a strong sense of identity but they also support children to become involved within their local community.
Kidz Retreat has been successful long side 1300 Schools/Kindergartens/Childcare Centre’s within Australia to have access and facilitate an Early Learning Languages Australia (ELLA) Program which has been developed by the Australian Government Department of Education and Training.
This app enhances the development of children’s social and language skills in the early years, along with developing confidence in learning a second language. Children attending our 4 year-old Kindergarten program have access to the ELLA app, learning Indonesian with the support from not only our 2 Early Childhood Teachers and the ELLA app via supplied iPads, but our amazing Food Coordinator is from Bali, Indonesia!!
