Bluebird Early Education Parkes recently opened our doors to offer care for children from nursery, toddler, pre-kindergarten to preschool age. The preschool class for children aged four to five has Chelsea Neems as their teacher.
Chelsea has a Bachelors of Teaching and more than 15 years of experience. She is there five days per week to work closely with pre-school families in the transition to school process. “In preparation for school we are working on social skills, gross motor skills, pre numeracy and literacy experiences, self-help skills and looking after our belongings,” said Chelsea; “We include lots of excursions around the community in the daily program of our transition group. We often make biscuits to take to nursing homes, the Police and other community workers.”
Another project staff focus on is friendship and what it entails: appropriate ways of expressing emotions, ways of building positive relationships, discussing personal qualities in each of us, and social and emotional wellbeing.
In providing an excellent and engaging early childhood education experience, the Bluebird Parkes centre has stimulating indoor and outdoor learning environments, and applies an engaging, playbased early learning program that focuses on successful learning for life skills.
The team have a bus to offer a pick up and drop off service; all nappies are provided, as well as meals. Just like
the bluebird, Bluebird Early Learning continuously reach for the sky. The staff look forward to helping your child’s greatest potential take flight.
