The Clovel Learning Experience
Clovel’s Preschool program sets 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.
“We ensure a well-resourced, rich and inviting “learning through play” environment that is reflective of children’s interests, strengths and 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 by 80%.
The Early Years Learning Framework for Australia (EYLF) “Belonging, Being, Becoming” guides our Preschool Program.
It’s a pleasure to be there when they really need you, whether its guidance, a shoulder to cry on, a hug, or to play and have fun with – Tiarna, Liverpool
Play Based Learning
Clovel’s Preschool program is not a “one size fits all model” but rather a child-specific “Play Based” educational program.
Our Educators will custom fit a program for your child based on what they are good at, are interested in, and loves to do at their own pace.
“All the learning and growth your child will experience is natural, easy, stress free and delivered via a play based learning model ….”
This style of programming has proven to be best in assisting in the development of confidence, independence, resilience, social skills, emotional strength and a love of learning.
This helps to ensure that those vital building blocks necessary for school life and beyond are in place by the time your child transitions to “big school”.
Central to our Preschool Program are 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.
Building Life Skills
Your child will also receive support and encouragement to develop their important social skills, to aid in their transition to primary school.
Through planned activities and spontaneous moments, your child will learn valuable skills such as
- Co-operation with others
- Sharing and turn-taking
- Conflict resolution
Communication with Parents
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. – Kaitlyn, Granville
