Learning Programs


Child Focussed Learning

At Possum Hollow Childcare Centre, Programs are developed under the guidance of trained staff members to meet the approval of the Australian Children’s & Education Care Quality Authority.

Our educational program enhances each child’s learning and development and occurs in relation to their identity, connection with community, wellbeing, confidence as learners and effectiveness as communicators.

Each child’s current knowledge, strengths, ideas, culture, abilities and interests are the foundation of the program.


Learning Through Play

Possum Hollow Educators respond to children’s ideas, and play and extend children’s learning through open-ended questions, interactions and feedback.

Each child’s agency is promoted, enabling them to make choices and decisions that influence events and their world. Possum Hollow educators provide a balance between child led, child initiated and educator supported learning.

We create a learning environment that encourages children to explore, solve problems, create and construct.



Benefits of Play 

Play is a context for learning that:
Allows for the expression of personality and uniqueness
Enhances dispositions such as curiosity and creativity
Enables children to make connections between prior experiences and new learning
Assists children to develop relationships and concepts
Stimulates a sense of wellbeing.

Assessment and Reflection

Each child’s learning and development is assessed as part of an ongoing cycle of observation, analyzing learning, documentation, planning, implementation and reflection.

Families are informed about the program and their child’s progress.
