Our playgroup programme is designed to ignite your child’s curiosity about the world, whilst developing social and cognitive skills. Our dedicated educators form strong bonds with the children and their families. The purpose built learning environment acts as the third teacher, providing various learning experiences (Literacy and language, science, maths, creative arts, dramatic play, physical development, music, sensory). At each playgroup session the children will have the opportunity to explore different classrooms that facilitate their learning. Teachers observe, document and nurture each child’s growth, wellbeing and future learning direction.
Our playgroups are offered in three different languages; Mandarin, English or French.
Avendale Education offers playgroups for children from 6 months to 3 years old in different languages including English, French and Mandarin.
Playgroup is a great way for your child to learn about the world around them using their senses. At this early age children are interested in exploring how things feel, sound, taste and smell. We offer a programme filled with different sensory provocations, so that your child can investigate, explore and discover their new environment. Playgroups are accompanied classes, which give the caregiver the opportunity to share ideas as well as experience the class with their child. Playgroup is a continuous program where our dedicated teachers form strong and positive relationships with the children and their families. This enables teachers to facilitate each child’s growth, wellbeing and development.
Toddlers still need the comfort of their parent or carer to feel safe. For 60 – 90 minutes a day, one to three times a week, our playgroups bring the carer into the environment, allowing the child to gradually develop the confidence they need for a smooth and happy transition to attending regular nursery or kindergarten. It is also an opportunity for the child to develop socially with peers at our Reggio Emilia inspired learning environment.
