Balmoral House Private Preschool is located on Tugulawah country meaning bend in the river. We acknowledge that learning has taken place on this land for thousands of years. Balmoral House Private preschool acknowledges Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people as the first Peoples of this nation and the Traditional Owners of this land in which we work, meet and play. We pay our respects to Elders past, present and emerging.
Our programs have a strong emphasis on play-based learning as play is the best vehicle for young children’s learning providing the most appropriate stimulus for brain development. Our programs also recognise the importance of communication, language, social & emotional development.READ MORE
We believe that hands-on, experimental learning is the best educational approach for children and we do this through a strong connection to nature and the outdoors, interest-lead learning, emergent curriculum, a play-based focus, enquiry-based teaching style and authentic play.READ MORE
LEARNING THROUGH PLAY
Play & learning are entwined in such a way that it is difficult to separate.
Play is vital for children. When Children’s natural curiosity is encouraged, learning flows! Through play young children explore and learn to understand the world around them as they come to communicate, discover, imagine and create.
Our educational team at Balmoral House will lead, mentor, support and encourage learning in all of our classrooms by planning and delivering a broad and diverse program that uses the EYLF and National Quality Standards (‘NQS’) as its foundation. Using EYLF and the NQS as a founding base, our team will also incorporate an emergent curriculum with the aid of respected learning philosophies of Reggio Emilia. The role of our team is to facilitate learning.
