We reflect and evaluate our activities on a continual basis, meeting weekly to discuss the success of recent activities as well as our children’s interests and strengths. We ensure that evaluation of our activities is an inclusive undertaking, seeking feedback from children and parents by way of surveys, our “big ideas board” and in general conversations and observations. We use these evaluations to inform ongoing planning and to extend or scaffold interest onto subsequent child lead, interest based activities.
As well as providing a range of stimulating and educational activities, there are many opportunities for our children to develop socially through structured activities and sports, free play or even our very social meal times. Social skills are important life skills and our inclusive environment, combined with the programs we offer, affords our children an excellent opportunity to develop those skills in an organic way.
