At Your Place Early Learning Centre all extra-curricular programs are complimentary.
We are always looking for new and inspiring extra-curricular programs to add to our curriculum.
Your Place Early Learning Centre arranges both excursions and incursions. These events allow children to explore the broader community and extend their learning experiences beyond our curriculum.
Children will have an opportunity to take part in many excursions and incursions during the year, such as visits to local primary schools, visits of students from primary schools, visits to local libraries, Hatching Eggs Program and Seaweed Sally.
Through excursions and incursions, we introduce children to the wonders of nature, life cycle of animals, marine life, road safety, cultural diversity and much more.
Families will be notified through our Newsletters, Facebook page and notices of any excursion/incursions that has been planned.
Family involvement and feedback is encouraged and appreciated.
