ELC at Firbank Grammar
(Firbank Grammar School is a Registered Child Care Provider.)
Why Firbank Grammar Early Learning Centre?
We understand the significance of choosing the first school for your child. By bringing your child to Firbank, you join a community with shared high expectations and one that promotes the potential of all children. Sandringham Campus Early Learning Centre offers a co-educational experience and the Turner House Early Learning Centre is part of the Brighton girls campus. The two vibrant campuses share common approaches, with each learning space reflecting the care and dedication of the highly qualified educators to make school a special place for your child.
Program Options and Long Day Model
Flexibility for families lies at the heart of our program offerings, with two-day, three-day and five-day options for 3 year olds and a five-day program for 4 year olds. We also provide a ‘Stay and Play’ Playgroup opportunity for families with younger children (0+ months to 3 years) to connect with the School community, develop relationships and explore all areas of the Early Years curriculum. We appreciate the demands of modern life and, from 2019, will support our families by providing a convenient Long Day Education model commencing at 7.00 a.m. and finishing at 6.00 p.m.
Our Long Day Education model allows for the transitioning of the children from the Long Day option at 8.45 a.m. to the ELC program in a seamless manner, and similarly at the conclusion of the program at 3.00 p.m. This model supports opportunities for critical planning, programming and reflection, and promotes collaboration in ways that seek to strengthen and support each child’s continuous learning journey.
