Occasional Care at St Anthony's
The Occasional Care Program at St Anthony’s is guided by the Belonging, Being and Becoming: The Early Years Framework for Australia (EYLF). The framework supports curriculum decision making, in a play-based learning environment. Each child's current knowledge, strengths, ideas and interests are foundational to our program. Educators actively engage with children in their play and facilitate and extend their learning and development. Flexible learning environments are designed as an invitation for learning, and our responsive routine enables children to make choices and decisions in their learning. Open ended experiences, child-initiated learning and the nature play space will be used to foster children's thinking and curiosity.
Each child's learning and development is documented as part of the cycle of planning and the Seesaw app is employed to document and share children's learning with families.
At St Anthony’s the Occasional Care Program is offered every Friday during the school term and is designed for children aged 3-5 years old, with the option of a morning session from from 8:45 to 11:45 am, or a full day session from 8:45am to 3:00pm. The morning session is free, and the cost of the full day session is $20
ALL families from the Millicent and wider community are welcome to attend.
