The Green Room
Green Room provides care for children aged between 2 and 3 years. During this time, they will develop many of their fundamental skills, including social, fine motor and language skills. The development of these skills is facilitated in a variety of ways. Educators encourage children to participate in art, reading and play, all the time facilitating interactions with other children to advance their ability to socialise and communicate. It is often said that no child is too young to learn and we believe this to be true. In the Green Room, learning is a fun and interactive activity, tailored to the children’s interests and age-group.
Some activities your child may partake in include:
- Group Play – allowing for the building of your child’s communication skills, as well as their spatial abilities.
- Educator-Driven Play – this may involve the educator choosing a specific activity for the children to do together. Learning how to follow instructions and be polite will be important as your child grows.
- Individual Opportunities – These may range from creative activities such as painting, all the way to learning activities such as reading and basic mathematics. Often, these activities are taught in a play-based environment alongside creative play; for example, with Lego or matching words with pictures.
During your child’s time in the Green Room, please feel free to speak to our friendly educators about the curriculum and program plan. We are always requesting families to contribute ideas or suggestions that may assist us with the program planning.
We are constantly reflecting on our practices and extending upon the learning outcomes by involving children in choosing their own experiences while also providing intentional teaching opportunities wherever possible.
My name is Nenka Geyer and I am the Green Room Team Leader. I was born in Botswana and have lived in Australia for the past three years. I am a mother of three beautiful daughters, all of whom are twenty-one and older. I have 20 years of accounting experience in the motor industry, but I decided to change my career path after my neighbour left her two children in my care for a day. I pursued the passion and interest that I felt, and I am now a qualified educator.
I am very passionate about children and have natural nurturing qualities. I acknowledge and understand that each child is a unique individual who needs a secure, caring and stimulating atmosphere in which to grow and be treated equally with respect and dignity because early years of life are the most important for learning. I endeavour to build positive caring relationships with all families and their children as they undertake their journey of learning, and am looking forward to doing so very much.
