Scots Campbell Street Outside School Hours Care provides a safe, welcoming, and mentally stimulating environment within Campbell Street Primary School grounds.
We offer after school care and vacation care for children up to 12 years of age. With a strong focus on preparing them for life’s challenges and adulthood.
We are inspired by the Reggio Emilia approach that honours children as strong, competent and capable citizens who are full of wonder and curiosity to learn. Capable of creating their own ways of learning through play, children explore a variety of hands-on learning experiences
We use the Reggio Emilia approach that honours children as strong, competent and capable citizens who are full of wonder and curiosity to learn.
Children have a natural drive that makes them want to understand and know about the world around them and how this world relates to them. Capable of creating their own ways of learning through play, children explore a variety of hands-on-learning experiences at our early learning centre.
We create the spaces that allow children to fulfil this potential through play-based activities that are shaped for each child’s needs and level of development. Children are given time to learn, explore, and then return to a focus of interest as needed.
It is an approach based on listening rather than talking; where doubt and amazement are welcome factors along with inquiry.
Our spacious and engaging outdoor areas provide boundless opportunities for play-based activities that encourage the physical and social development of children. All equipment and natural features are safe, and our recycling area helps to plant the seed of environmental awareness and sustainability.
Our early learning centre features:
