Our ELC curriculum includes a unique blend of inquiry and play-based learning. At Bacchus Marsh Grammar ELC, our focus is helping children to develop into independent thinkers. Our children learn how to solve problems, reflect creatively and communicate effectively and confidently within a nurturing, safe and inspiring learning environment.
Our light filled indoor learning spaces in the ELC are rich in provocation, thoughtfully arranged to foster creative exploration while encouraging interaction and communication. Large doors flow to our outdoor area, which is a creative, open-ended space with plenty of sensory stimuli. Children are encouraged to engage with nature and to explore the garden beds, climbing, sand areas, rocks, dirt and water.
Our dedicated teaching team are skilled in collecting data, informing their understanding of each child and building individualised goals and intentions in collaboration with families.
Land Beyond the Fence
We offer the Land Beyond the Fence Program to provide a space for children to develop a strong connection with nature. Current research is overwhelmingly in favour of nature play for children due to its many benefits. Uninterrupted Explorations in nature can result in improved problem-solving skills, independence, resilience, and leadership, while allowing children to pursue imagination and creativity.
Our Land Beyond the Fence Program takes place on designated days during terms two and three, on our Staughton Vale Campus. After meeting at our Meeting Place and saying our acknowledgement to country, we begin our explorations of the Land surrounding us by immersing in a range of activities, promoting risky play, problem solving and resilience.
