Ready, steady - school!
8:30am-3:30pm weekdays, 6hr sessions
Oasis+ is a FREE programme designed to support your child in getting ready for school, even if they are already enrolled in another early learning environment.
Unique small learning environment for up to a maximum of 6 children.
Oasis+ is located within the grounds of Granny’s Place, at 67 Greenwood Street. Our learning environment is a cosy classroom with its own private outside garden. Oasis+ is ideally suited for children aged 4 years and over as we are passionate about supporting children as they get ready to start school. In this small group environment we can ensure there are specific learning opportunities for each child so that they develop the skills they need to confidently and competently make the transition from early childhood education to school.
We follow a structured daily routine allowing plenty of opportunities for children to follow their own interests as well as joining in with planned group projects. A rich variety of resources and activities are provided to support each child and the group in their interests, strengths, dispositions, virtues, routines and current events. Our daily environment is structured to foster opportunities for creativity, problem-solving, exploration, numeracy, literacy, nature, science, music, drama, and language development.
Children are treated as unique individuals. We believe that in order for children to thrive, it is important we work in partnership with parents to support their child’s physical, spiritual and emotional wellbeing, as well as celebrating their own cultural background. We do this while upholding our centre’s Christian values.
We believe learning should be fun! Haley Rowling is the dedicated teacher for this small group of children and is supported by the Granny’s Place teaching team and is overseen by Kevin Rodgers (Dip Tch ECE) and Angelique Hobbs (Dip Tch ECE). Our team is passionate about making learning experiences for children exciting while ensuring that relationships are nurtured.
