Learning Philosophy of the Centre
The YMCA - YWCA has adopted the High Scope approach to support the needs, interests and abilities of all children. Our High Scope Curriculum sees children as active learners, learning the best from activities they choose, plan, carry out, and reflect upon. Language and problem solving is encouraged.

As Early Childhood Educators, we plan active learning experiences that are of immediate assistance to the children. The daily routine is mapped out for the children, using pictures for each activity. This creates a very secure environment for the children, as it allows them to explore with the comfort and confidence of always knowing what transition is coming up next.
