Clovel’s Preschool Program is intentionally designed to set up your child to succeed not only in formal schooling but also for life itself. Unlike traditional or standard services, where preschool starts at 3 years of age, our research tells us valuable opportunities for your child’s development and education may be lost if we wait for your child to turn 3 before we involve them in Clovel’s Preschool program. Thus, at Clovel, we begin each child’s individual early learning and development program from 6 weeks of age.
We ensure a well-resourced, rich and inviting ‘learning through play’ environment that is reflective of children’s interests, strengths & individual needs.
Upon enrolment at Clovel, your child will immediately be involved in our Preschool and School Readiness Programs. Our Programs begin with our Brain Linkage program for babies from 6 weeks of age and continue through all areas of development until the age of six years. By that time, each child’s brain will have grown to 90% of adults size. The Early Years Learning Framework for Australia (EYLF) “Belonging, Being, Becoming” guides our Preschool Program, which is based on what each individual child loves to do, is interested in and good at.
It’s a pleasure to be there when the children really need you, whether its guidance, a shoulder to cry on, a hug, or to play and have fun with
Central to our Preschool Program beginning from 6 weeks of age is our Educational Programs and Everyday Activities. These activities not only offer endless opportunities for imaginative play and creativity but also assist in the development of physical, cognitive, language, social and emotional skills.
All of our Activities are designed to promote curiosity, imagination, and problem solving and encourage the use of the “Human Senses”.
In addition to core ‘everyday’ experiences, our Educators will extend on your child’s interests, projects and investigations in many ways.
Your child may be interested in space – the planets, moon and stars.
We will encourage your child to not only ask questions about space but experiment and research to discover the answers together – we will build cardboard box ‘rockets’ and brainstorm how different items may fly, create art of what we think aliens look like, we will do experiments on gravity …. the possibilities are endless.
Kindyhub is Clovel’s App of choice for interactive communication between our families and our Educators. Our Clovel families simply download the free app to their smartphone, tablet or PC to enable immediate and convenient access to view their child’s photos, learning and development progress.
I enjoy feeling the love that is all around you, day in and day out.
