A Whole Child Approach To Early Childhood Education

At Ready 2 Learn, the philosophy of the Whole Child informs our Early Learning Program. The approach views the early years as the most important. It builds a strong foundation for life.

Rather than targeting academic gain, it fosters a balanced approach. The aim is to create a happy and productive adult. The method promotes:

  • Emotional and physical health.
  • Emotional and physical safety.
  • Engaged and motivated learning.
  • Support from caring people.
  • Academic challenges.

Your child’s room complements their age and development phase. Their rich environment inspires:

  • Challenging experiences.
  • Play-based learning.
  • Exploration and discovery.
  • Group participation.

Also, our tailored learning environments complement the age and developmental stage of your child. Children thrive physically, emotionally, intellectually and socially within our purpose built environment and with the experiences we provide.

What Parents Are Saying About Ready 2 Learn Riverstone

The girls can do no wrong. They’re clear with all communication, they listen to instructions if any and they are all an absolute pleasure to deal with, always with a smile on their faces. I do hope they never feel unappreciated for what they do as it’s a hard job that doesn’t pay nearly what it’s worth. I take my hat off to them all 🙂 To malina & all the staff at the Riverstone Centre, just like to say a big thank you to everyone one for all the effort and energy that has gone into teaching Emily over the passed 3 years especially with Emily being our first child. Throughout our time at the centre the communication between myself and the staff has been wonderful, they are always going out of their way to provide me with feedback on how Emily’s day has been which makes us feel extremely grateful for the professional management and values each of your staff have and do. It makes our life so much easier knowing Emily makes us feel extremely grateful for the professional management and values each of your staff have and do. It makes our life so much easier knowing Emily is in good hands and loves every minute of being in your care. Thank you!

Parent Communication

At Ready 2 Learn we encourage family involvement and participation in our Educational Program as we understand that seeing what your child is learning throughout their day and being a part of their development is so important. Therefore, we aim to make interacting with your child’s learning and being as involved as you can, simple!

You will receive:

  • The Educational Program Weekly - This is a child centred program which concentrates on the interests and interactions of your child, identifying their learning focuses and developmental milestones.
  • Newsletter Monthly – This includes important information and reminders for parents and families, and upcoming events helping you to stay up to date.
  • Learning Journey Quarterly  – This is an individual portfolio dedicated to your child’s individual learning. Constructed over a 12 month period, the portfolio is an ongoing reflective document, which outlines learning accomplishments achieved by your child here at Ready 2 Learn. This document is guided by the Early Years Learning Framework (The National Curriculum for the Early Education sector) and focuses on ‘Becoming, Being and Belonging”.

School Readiness Program

At Ready 2 Learn we use a proactive approach when developing our School Readiness Program for your child and one that is also recommended by The NSW Department of Education. Our Educators will work closely with your child, linking the Early Years Learning Framework to the Early Stage 1 Syllabus in Kindergarten to provide your child with Primary School Teachers who better understand your child’s prior learning, development and background. 

Our Educators use Intentional Teaching Practices to provide your child with the right preparation and support in bridging the gap between these two learning models ensuring they become School Ready. Our Educators will also facilitate a smooth transition to Primary School with extensive preparation at least 12 months in advance, identifying learning opportunities and developmental goals for your child, whilst collaborating with your family and local schools.
