The Melaleuca Room provides places for up to 20 children with 3 permanent staff and one part time staff member.
The room is situated in the Tomaree Community Centre next door to the Salamander Child Care Centre’s main building and is amongst the community hub of the Tomaree Peninsula with a unique environment that participates in activities in the Community Centre and the main Centre daily.
In this room, the children are introduced to a variety of new experiences planned to further develop their growing language, cognitive and physical abilities and social and emotional development. The children are also encouraged to develop a greater sense of self and are supported to achieve greater independence. Interwoven into the daily activities is our Transition to School Program for those children who are moving onto big school the following year.
The Banksia & Melaleuca Rooms have a strong focus on preschool learning. The program nurtures children in self-esteem, well being & development.
Planned learning is aimed at promoting children’s critical thinking, stimulating their investigative, problem solving & exploration skills. Through play-based activities children are encouraged to expand their knowledge and skills in literacy, numeracy and socialisation.
