This short-day program provides education and care for a maximum of 19 children from 3-5 years.
The Bilawi room consists of 3 qualified educators that include the Room Leader, educators (Diploma Children’s Services), (Certificate 3 in Early Childhood Education and Care), along with additional support educators.
Play-based learning capitalises on children’s uniqueness, the desire to be curious, to explore and for self-expression. The Bilawi children are viewed as active participants and decision makers which assists them to become confident in who they are and where they belong. ‘Belonging is central to being and becoming in that it shapes who children are and who they can become.’ (A vision for children’s learning – EYLF pg: 6)
The Bilawi learning program is developed upon the interests of each child and also includes individual developmental milestones and needs, incorporating the concepts of the National Quality Framework and The Early Years Learning Framework of Australia, V2.0, 2022.)
A welcome, culturally safe and engaging environment is created by educators in acknowledgment of the diversity of families and their aspirations for their children, and recognition that families are the child’s first teachers. Learning outcomes are most likely to be achieved when educators work in partnership with child, the family and other professionals and communities including schools .(EYLF)
Learning for life is evident everyday as there are experiences that inspire creativity, communication and cooperation, promote motor and thinking skills, focus on positive health and wellbeing, while fostering an understanding of what it means to be a part of PECC and the global community.
