Natural Elements Early Learning Centre offers a comprehensive school run. We collect and drop off from all local schools. The centre has developed a timetable to arrive at the schools close to schedule starting and finishing times. We have designated parking places and pick up points in each of the school premises. All kindy children are walked into their classrooms.
When school children arrive back at the centre they will be given a drink and afternoon tea. The school children follow My Time, Our Place framework. The framework focuses on your child’s wellbeing and development. Creating a program that builds on your child’s interests and abilities. Letting school children be active participants in the programming, making decisions and choices on their learning.
We offer school holiday and pupil free days when we have vacancies, but places are very limited and we recommend booking well in advance of the holidays. Priority is given to the children that use the before and after school service. School holiday programmes are organised prior to the holidays commencing. The programming consists of many fun interests and activities the children will enjoy.
The minimum staff/child ratios on excursions is as required by Community Services (Child Care) Regulation 1996. Volunteers are also required at times to increase adult/child ratios.
The centre has one bus fully equipped with seat belts and booster seats for the transportation of children on excursions. Parents and volunteers are always welcome.
