Riberries educators understand how difficult it is to entrust your precious little one to their care, so early in their life. They are dedicated to nurturing your infant through their learning with precision and care, but also actively supporting you in the journey.
To do this, our qualified, caring educators will build a relationship with you to personalise a routine for your baby. This will always be flexible so we can continually meet your needs and help your baby to flourish.
Educators will offer a safe and stimulating environment both indoors and outdoors that encourages your baby to explore and grow emotionally, physically and spiritually, and you will always be welcome to contribute, participate or ask questions.
Children in our Doojas room, between 12mths and 2 years, are now more mobile and exploring takes on a whole new meaning! Your Doojas educators will collaborate with you to ensure routines and activities throughout the day will provide opportunities to for your child to blossom as they explore more social, physical and creative pursuits.
They will assist your child to become more self-aware and to begin to develop their communication skills. Moving gently toward more predictable routines will enable your child to develop confidence to grow in a safe environment.
At 2 years old, our Midyims are becoming more self-aware as they explore their environment, in relation to their emotions. Participating in daily, predictable tasks and routines offer important opportunities for learning about their abilities. In this group, the educators assist the children to manage their emotions, helping them to begin developing self-control as they learn to share and play with their peers.
The Midyim outdoor world is also larger, and there are abundant opportunities to grow physically and socially, as they are able to engage with older children in the exciting shared outdoor space.
Families are encouraged to support their Ooray children to complete small routines on arrival that help build their confidence and sense of belonging. Finding their photo, choosing which locker they’d like to place their bag in, unpacking their drink bottle and hat also helps build a sense of responsibility.
The Oorays educators are actively listening to and watching your child, taking note of their interests and strengths, so that the activities and experiences they plan will encourage your child to explore new concepts and skills without fear.
The Bolwarras Kindergarten teacher and educator will continue to offer quality, fun, play-based learning experiences that allow the children to explore new concepts, come up with their own theories and ideas, negotiate and take risks.
In this stimulating environment, as the year progresses, the children will develop language, memory and basic mathematical skills, be better able to regulate their behaviour, and accept and participate more readily in routines and responsibilities, which will support their transition to school.
