What is play based learning?
Learning through play helps children develop social and cognitive skills, mature emotionally and gain the self-confidence they need to engage in new experiences and make sense of their world. There are various forms of play and these include dramatic, fantasy, exploratory, manipulative and physical play.
What curriculum do you follow?
At Maragon we base our learning on the Early Years Learning Framework, whilst incorporating the Reggio Emilia approach, Montessori and Vygotsky throughout our programs. We base our approach on years of research and experience in international best practices and confidently deliver excellent learning to all the children in our care.
Do you prepare my child for School?
In addition to the Early Years Learning Framework, Reggio Emilia, Montessori and Vygotsky, we also refer to the Australian Curriculum for our Junior Kindy and Kindy programs. We aim to provide a Junior Kindy and Kindy program that ensures a smooth transition into the school system, whilst instilling a lifelong love for learning through exploration and investigation.
Does my child have to sleep during nap time?
We do recommend that children under the age of three have a sleep during the day but understand that children are all different. We respect parents and children’s preferences and provide children with opportunities for quiet activities like reading or puzzles, should they not require a nap.
