Extra Curricular Programs
In addition to providing care and education of the highest standard we also offer extracurricular programs which are a key focus in allowing children to experience a world of creative engagement through movement, play and physical activities.
These stimulating, extracurricular programs are delivered by specialist teachers and professionals and are included in our fees, allowing our children to engage in activities such as Yoga, dance, music, fitness, language and cooking lessons without the burden of additional costs.
At Agile, we believe that promoting children’s health is an important aspect of providing care. We understand the important role we provide in meeting the nutritional needs of our children. Our qualified chef prepares fresh meals daily ensuring our children are met with over half of their recommended daily dietary intake from our menus whilst in our care.
Our chef is mindful of the many diagnosed allergies and dietary requirements of our children and will cater appropriately and offer suitable substitutes in accordance with support and input from families and the Centre Manager.
It is important that children are offered a variety of nutritious meals and snacks and engage in positive, social and progressive mealtime experiences as part of their growth and development. We are also committed in assisting families to develop healthy food attitudes and habits. Guidelines around healthy eating can be found in the foyer or by asking a friendly team member.
Using the Early Years Learning Framework educators will observe your child’s learning so they can extend on this and plan a program that caters for the children’s interest. They will do this by listening, watching and talking to your child.
Each child will have their own portfolio or collection of learning. This may contain photos and children’s work to show what your child is learning. This learning journey is available for you to view at any time. Your classroom will also show on-going learning through daily journals/books, photographs, project work, learning stories and a program documenting the day’s progress.
As part of our commitment to providing your child the best early learning experience, we're proud to announce Agile Early Learning will be using Kindyhub. Kindyhub is a communication tool, allowing us to easily share your child's experience with you. Our educators capture your child's achievements throughout the day via Kindyhub with photos, notes and stories. Thanks to Kindyhub we have our very own Agile Learning App available from the iTunes store/Google store.
School transition program
Starting formal school is an important milestone that can be an exciting and anxious time. Our school transition program aims to ensure that children and their families enjoy their start to school and the many school years ahead. Our centre provides warm, nurturing and stimulating environments aimed at offering the best possible early learning curriculum, where children can develop to their full potential. Agile Early Learning prepares your child for a seamless and successful school transition.
National quality framework:
The National Quality Framework is a Government initiative which sets a National Quality Standard creating greater consistency for early childhood education and care services across Australia.
This initiative aims to improve educator-to-child ratios in services, increased skills and qualifications, national regulations and a quality ratings system which will help you to make informed choices about the education and care you choose for your child.
The seven quality areas are:
- 1Educational programs and practice.
- 2Children’s health and safety.
- 3The physical environment.
- 4Staff arrangements
- 5Relationships with children
- 6Collaborative partnerships with families and communities.
- 7Leadership and service management.
Agile Early Learning’s aim is to exceed the national quality standard across all areas of our service and has a Quality Improvement Plan (QIP) in place to show what is happening in our centre to achieve this.
This will look at areas such as educational programs and practice, children’s health and safety, physical environment, staffing arrangements, relationships with children and collaborative partnerships with families and communities. We also ensure that best practice is embedded in service operations which is informed by critical reflection and is shaped by meaningful engagement with families and/or the community.
