Our welcoming early learning centre in Yokine accommodates up to 41 children ranging in age from 8 weeks – 5 years.
Our Nursery room has a great homely feel to it. Its’ layout allows children to explore their surroundings whilst ensuring adequate adult supervision at all times during day care. The outdoor area has astro turf and an area of paving providing a variety of surfaces for the children to play on. These areas are set up every day with inspiring activities for our babies to explore.
Within our day care centre the Toddler room and Junior Kindy room are set up with different areas to encourage exploration, creativity and imaginative play. We cater for all children’s interests – those who like to construct and create, children who like to dance in wide spaced areas and children who like to spend some quiet time reading and thinking in a peaceful environment. Within these rooms our early learning centre promotes independence and decision making. Children have the freedom of choosing indoor or outdoor play at our child care centre.
Maragon Early Learning Centre Yokine offers a specialised Junior Kindy program. The program allows for enriched development in the specific areas of language and literacy and mathematics. The Junior Kindy program prepares our children for a smooth transition to school, by laying a solid foundation regarding the skills and development required for Kindy and Pre-School.
The main outdoor attraction at the Yokine Early Learning Centre is our large enclosed sand pit which contains a climbing frame to challenge children’s physical ability. We also have a covered pergola area allowing outdoor play at all times of the year. Our children love to stand outside under the pergola when it is raining and listen to the rain drops beating down on the roof.
The natural play area in our early learning centre allows the children to roam freely in the outdoor area, discovering all sorts of creatures among the grass and plants. Physical activities are set up daily based on our children’s interests.
Community participation and parental involvement are encouraged. Our parents are encouraged to join us in our daily activities and we have strong links with our local community. Our children have been on excursions to our local nursing home, our local library and trips to the post box.
Our children, parents and extended families are the most important aspect of our early learning centre and are held with very high regard at Maragon Yokine.
Our Yokine early learning centre is close to the surrounding suburbs of Joondanna, Coolbinia and Menora.
