The Akuna Room is our year prior to school room for 4-6 year olds.
Our Akuna Room is led by Alison our ECT. Alison and her dedicated and experienced team implement a positive transition to school program for children prior to staring school. The program has a balance of unstructured play based experiences for children that build on their social competence, automony and agency. These experiences are planned focusing on children's interests and strenghts, children are able to engage in these activities in our learning centres that educators develop for children to explore and build their own understandings through hands on and social engagement.
The Akuna room provides children with opportunities to explore literacy through project work, our book area, writing centre and nature area. We have a strong focus on creative learning through visual art and craft activities.
We support children's transition to school through educators support during orientation visits to schools in our district.
