Baler Early Learning Program

The main purpose of the program is to support parents to develop the skills of enhancing early literacy and numeracy as their child’s first teacher. This program links in with other health services to ensure each child is supported in their developmental journey. Families are encouraged to become familiar with the school grounds, get to know the teacher and be involved in school programs to build early relationships with the school.

Our Early Learning Program is run by a Kindergarten teacher who has been trained in an Abecedarian/3A approach and supported by a parent committee.

This approach focuses on:

– Language priority

– Learning games to develop skills

– Conversational reading (encouraging back and forth communication)

– Enriched caregiving (Learning how to add educational content to daily routines of care)
