A little more on each centre
Jabiru Spring Mountain along with strong partnerships with Spring Mountain State School has developed a nature space that aims to provide play-based investigations that excites, challenges and enables children to use their creativity. Our educational program focuses on developing our children’s imagination, dexterity, their physical, cognitive, social and emotional skills. Our shared beliefs and collaboration with our school enable this space to be ever-evolving and purpose-driven. The nature play den provides children with opportunities to engage in open-ended, diverse and meaningful learning experiences. In this space, the children enter a world of ‘what if’ that facilitates problem-solving, creativity and theoretical reasoning. Engaging these skillsets in the natural environment brings a sense of adventure and excitement to play.
Camp Hill Outside School Hours Care fosters learning through observationally derived and self-directed play. They aim to enrich the children’s lives by introducing them to life skills, knowledge and experiences that go beyond their school learning. They value nature, community and sustainable development and practice in both our tangible and intangible goals. Camp Hill OSHC aims to impart a strong sense of self-assessed boundaries and foster appropriate emotional behaviours in the children we work with. Healthy living and all things pertaining to it is fundamental to much of our programming and practices.
Woodcrest State Collage OSHC’s vision; ‘To go far, we go together towards a journey of transformational change’. We as a new service are embracing a relationship with the land and nature. Play-based and leisure for us is the process of using local community of practice and environment as a pivotal starting point.
