Bumblebee Room. 3-4years
We would like to welcome you to The Bumblebee Room. We have 15 children in the room each day, our room is designed to cater for the needs of children aged 3-4 years of age.
The ratio in our room is set to DECS regulations (1:10) which provides your child with quality care and interactions, and thus more opportunities to develop strong attachments to caregivers, which is of high importance to us at Play Learn and Grow
Educators in Room
There are three educators in The Bumblebee Room, two fulltime and 1-part time educator, so at all times in the day there are at least two staff (which is guided by DECS regulation on ratios of 1:10 in the 3-5 years).
There are three shifts in the room, these shifts are staggered throughout the morning to ensure that at all times of the day we can provide high quality care for your child
We have a set routine each day where children can comfortably engage in play-based activities and experiences across a range of learning areas. We have a ‘Summer’ and ‘Winter’ routine, with flexibility between transitional months. The daily routine provides opportunities for children to make choices about experiences and equipment, to engage with the indoor and outdoor environment and to explore and work independently or engage socially with others, developing their friendships as well as language and communication skills.
The routine encourages children to develop self-help skills, gain confidence in their abilities and to take responsibility for their actions within the environment. Our daily routines provide consistency and stability for children, so they can feel safe and secure in their surroundings. At times, activities may change in order or time, due to weather conditions, spontaneous experiences and emerging interests, excursions and other special events.
