At Ocean Grove Preschool:
We warmly welcome, and are inclusive of all children and families to the centre. We strongly value and respect the relationships we form with children, families, and the local community.
The teaching team is passionate about the outdoors, encouraging children to investigate, explore and reflect in the natural outdoor play space at the centre. Children often get muddy, wet and sandy during the important business of play. Children learn about and care for the gardens, including growing and harvesting fruit and vegetables, as well as caring for the kinder chickens.
We participate in ‘Nature Play’. The program assists children in all areas of development; social, emotional, physical, cognitive, language, and communication. It is a journey of discovery outdoors, focusing on; looking after myself, looking after my friends and looking after my environment.
Children learn through a wide range of hands-on experiences and activities. These including interactive incursions and excursions which develop, and extend interest and knowledge in our wider community.
