Taungurong Room 3-4 yr old
Our most important purpose is supporting our children to have strong and positive Aboriginal identities. In the room, children enjoy Aboriginal cultural activities, such as campfire, listening, Aboriginal traditional stories with our Aboriginal staff. We have an open doors program in the centre. All the children, staff and parents in Bubup Wilam can come and visit and play in our room. Children learn how they connect and identify themselves as Aboriginal kids through daily contact with these Aboriginal children, parents and staff.
Children learn most when they choose the activity they are interested in. we provide a wide variety of activities to choose from, whether it be the art tables, home corner, and book corner. We also emphasised on the environmental education. We use natural and recycled materials for our art and craft activities as often as possible. We also encourage children to investigate the natural environment in and around Bubup Wilam. We provide the science tables to display these findings as well as the science experiences related to those findings. We also have been working on the vegetable garden to grow our own vegetables to eat for our healthy snack.
