Hi everyone, my name is Perri,
and welcome to the Rainforest Room. For most of you I will be the first friend you make here at TLC, but that's alright because I know a whole lot of other little birdies flying around in my room that you will get to know right away.

During the early years we focus on developing positive, warm and nurturing relationships between educators and children to establish a foundation of trust. The routine for our nursery children is flexible as each child is an individual. We work closely with our families’ home routine to maintain consistency between their home environment and the Centre. Your child’s room staff will support you transitioning your child into care and will keep you informed every step of the way.
When you walk into the Rainforest Room you will see areas set up for quiet areas, tummy time, dramatic play and creative play. They have a separate cot room which is a calm and relaxing environment for our little ones to sleep peacefully to gentle white noise. Our Rainforest Room have their own outdoor playground purposely designed for
under 2’s. Here they have the freedom to learn through exploring their environment safely.
At TLC we believe communication between families and educators is a priority as we aim to provide the highest quality care for your little ones. We have an open door policy which allows families to come and go throughout the day or you may wish to call throughout the day to touch base. We have a variety of ways to stay in touch: Kinder m8 app (eating, sleeping, toileting, day books learning stories, individual observations, events updates, and policies), email, phone and on drop off/ pick up.
All children will receive an individual portfolio which documents your child’s development, photos and art samples. These portfolios are beautiful keepsakes and will be treasured forever.

The Ocean Room is an important room the staff prepare the Toddler’s to mature into Pre-schoolers. We support children’s social/ emotional development and language skills in preparation for the children when they move up into the Jungle Room. We believe a positive transition process prepares the child, family and staff for the expectations of the next room and alleviates the stress from one room to another.
The Ocean Room staff help support you and your child through toilet training, further extending their self-help skills and focus on establishing positive and healthy relationships with peers and educators. TLC believe children learn through play, therefore, outside they will play in the main playground and have opportunities to interact with the Pre-schoolers in the afternoons.

Preparing your child for what we identify as “Big School” is critical to the wellbeing of themselves, and their parents. TLC, provides a structured, play based program that’s developed for each child based on their interests, strengths and needs. We ensure structure throughout this programme, meaning your child is able to develop a routine in which he or she is comfortable learning in.
Additionally, our School Readiness Programme is a critical part of their education as we develop their ability to familiarise themselves with basic literacy and numeracy skills, along with verbal and social skills. Upon your child departing TLC, we like all parents to have full confidence in their childs transition in to Big School.
We also believe that each child develops at their own pace, which is why we divide them in to small groups, allowing children to assist in one anothers learning.
We acknowledge the need to collate your childs progress throughout the year that may be used for you childs enrolment in to Big School. Their Jungle Room teacher will gather photos and art samples which we will compile in to a portfolio in which your child will leave with as a keepsake.
