Our centre provides a stimulating and fun environment to enhance your child’s learning in their early years. Much more than just a childcare centre, Papilio Essendon is dedicated to the important role we can play with early childhood education.
Early Childhood Program
Learning starts long before school, with the first five years of a child’s life being crucial to laying the foundations for their ability to learn throughout their later years. As a toddler, children are opening up to new challenges as their communication skills expand and they learn to concentrate, experiment and play. Our specifically designed Early Experiences program is at the heart of our approach to early childhood education. We have designed this program to deliver real-life learning experiences for your child. Our highly qualified educators support this magical phase through a program of play-based learning activities to help them explore their own interests and strengths.
Belonging, Being and Becoming
Australia’s Early Years Learning Framework, Belonging, Being and Becoming, is at the heart of our approach to early years education. The framework's emphasis is on play-based learning and includes things like:
- Singing to encourage your child to learn about language
- Drawing with crayons to help your child express their feelings and encouraging writing
- Playing with shapes and patterns to develop problem-solving skills
- Group activities to build their social skills
A Safe, Comfortable Environment
Our spacious centre will inspire your child's creativity and imagination, crucial for building social skills and self-confidence. We strive to provide your child with an environment that aligns with the comforts of home, and we do this by providing toys, play equipment and resources that would typically be in the home to help your child feel comfortable and safe.
