Beautiful spaces to Inspire learning
Our flexible environments are purposefully arranged to capture children’s interests, ideas and cater to individual needs. Our commitment to natural resources is evident in creating open ended play spaces for children to imagine, create and discover. Indoor/outdoor play is available to children throughout the day.
GEKA Kindergartens implement a play based emergent curriculum that is built on current research from the National Early Years Learning Framework (NEYLF 2009).The NEYLF defines play based learning as “a context for learning through which children organise and make sense of their social worlds, as they engage actively with people, objects and representations” (p. 6). The curriculum provides rich learning experiences developed through a strength/interest based approach. There is a balance between adult led intentional teaching opportunities and child driven projects.
We are committed to supporting children in ways that help connect them to the natural world in order to build and promote awareness of environmental and sustainable practices.
