At Lindfield Activity Centre we believe in providing children with an inclusive environment where they feel safe, secure and supported to express themselves and learn new skills. We believe strongly in the principle of free play and encourage children to choose how they would like to spend their time with us.
Our program also provides the opportunity for structured intentional teaching, focused around a weekly theme that relates to questions on the blackboard, craft, cooking and group activities. This theme aims to meet a learning outcome or principle in My Time, Our Place Framework.
The voices and interests of children are important to us and are taken into account when planning our future programs. This is done through conversations, observations of interests and discussions on the blackboard. Families are also asked to contribute to the program through conducting or participating in activities, surveys, conversations, feedback forms and committee meetings.
LAC also acknowledges the need for children to have access to quiet time, so we have couches nearby to bookcases to encourage a quiet area for reading and relaxation.
