Health and Nutrition

Not only do we emphasise and model healthy eating at our centre, this is matched by our selection of sports and active games.

We encourage exercise through activities made to be fun and rewarding. In this way, we hope to make fitness into an engaging everyday habit.

Our sports include basketball, soccer, baseball, and hockey. We also set up obstacle courses for the adventurous. These team sports can improve social skills and problem-solving within an inclusive and supportive environment.

We also offer open-ended games that get the kids moving at their own pace. These games are a great way for the younger children to develop core and gross motor skills, as well as self-confidence. Children problem-solve through their physical games, building useful social skills for the future.

Activities

Our morning and afternoon routines are comprised of both structured and open-ended activities. Our structured activities include extensive homework support, ensuring your child finishes his or her homework with confidence and guidance.

For our open-ended activities, both staff members and children set up our spacious yard according to what they want to do. We use 'My Time -- Our Place', a tried-and-true framework that serves as a strong foundation for play that is both productive and imaginative.

Our gardens offer many opportunities for your child to learn and explore. Hands-on gardening activities through our gardening club means your child can nurture living things, fostering compassion as well as environmental awareness

Children and families of all cultural backgrounds are welcome at Kids Academy Wadalba. We celebrate many cultural days and events, such as NAIDOC Week, Australia Day, and Chinese New Year.

We're always striving to nurture compassion within our community. That's one of the many reasons why we incorporate cultural education into our activities. We'll open the door to the wonderful tapestry of multiculturalism through songs, stories, toys, physical activities, and traditional dishes.

Children with Additional Needs

We welcome all children with a wide variety of abilities, backgrounds or needs. If your child requires extra medical, emotional or learning support, we will tailor our care for them and work closely with you to ensure they have a smooth transition into our centre. This includes seeking support from other networks or professionals to bridge any gaps in our service delivery.

Some of the additional needs and support which can be provided at our centre include but are not limited to:

  • English as a second language
  • Autism spectrum
  • Dyslexia
  • Physical disabilities
  • Minor or serious medical conditions
  • Emotional issues

Our team cultivates a warm atmosphere of inclusion through continuous improvement and open communication. We are confident that your child will benefit from our dedicated approach to care and education.

Please speak to our staff about your child’s individual needs and how we can accommodate them.

Together we can create a plan to help them reach their full potential.

Child Safety & Welfare

All aspects of our operations are in line with the National Quality Standards and the Early Years Learning Framework. This includes our Health and Safety policy. All educators follow our health and safety policies and procedures and have access to these online.

We understand that leaving your child in someone else’s care is a difficult thing to do. We assure you that safety is our top priority and our educators follow safety practices every day.

At all times, we ensure that our centre is secure and free of hazards, both inside and out. Fire drills and UV checks are a regular part of our informed approach to safety. We emphasise safety education by creating an atmosphere of safety awareness in all aspects of the day. You will see visual safety guides around our centre, such as our sun smart posters. These tools support our lessons about safety, which we discuss as part of the curriculum. We take every opportunity to act as role models, pointing out tripping or slipping hazards and putting hats and sunscreen on for outdoor play. We talk about stranger danger so that children can build awareness and can freely talk to us if they are scared or worried. We aim to teach children to think about their own safety habitually too.
