Children at our centre enjoy weekly visits from Happy Feet Fitness at no extra cost! Happy Feet Fitness is Australia’s largest children’s fitness and entertainment program. They aspire to be Australia's leading specialists inplay-based learning as well as encourage children to make healthy choices in every aspect of their lives. This is because children and fitness go hand-in-hand, encouraging them into being more confident and well-rounded individuals for the future.
In addition, children at Learn, Play, Grow Early Education and Care enjoy weekly music, movement and singing sessions from a visiting pianist around our own yamaha piano! Is there anything more beautiful than watching young children respond to live music? We are firm believers that music ignites all areas of child development and skills for school readiness, including intellectual, social-emotional, motor, language, and overall literacy. It helps the body and the mind work together.
Children in the nursery room also enjoy sensory play experiences lead by supportive educators. We curate sensory play experiences that include clay, ice, water, foam, rice, feathers and other awesome stuff. Why? 1. Sensory play builds nerve connections within the developing brain’s neural pathways, which trigger a child’s inclination for and ability in competing more complex learning tasks 2. Sensory play supports language development, cognitive growth, motor skills, problem solving skills, and social interaction 3. Sensory play aids in developing and enhancing memory functioning 4. Sensory play is great for calming an anxious or frustrated child 5. Sensory play helps children learn vitally important sensory attributes (hot, cold, sticky, dry, etc) Reference: https://creativeplayuk.com
