Our Rooms

Early Years Learning Framework and National Quality Standards are key to our service provision and to our curriculum planning and documentation of children’s learning. Our desire to strive for excellence in everything we do motivates us to critically reflect on and evaluate our practices to ensure the best learning outcomes for our children.

You can find more information on Early Years Learning Framework, also available in 20 other languages, here.

The ‘open flow’ environment and curriculum is created to support play based learning and empowers children to have the freedom to determine their own learning. Children are given the opportunity to form relationships with many children and Educators throughout the centre. All children are welcome to explore and play in any of the rooms and participate in activities with any Educator.

We use learning stories and floorbooks to document children’s voices and learning experiences. Each child has their own learning portfolio and this information is used to scaffold and extend children’s learning whilst at Unicare. Families input is highly valued as part of the Early Years Learning’s planning cycle process.

Our younger rooms – Koobidja, Uluru, Atlantis and Amazon are designed to stimulate and support children’s emerging independence and making sense of their worlds. Older rooms are designed with themes – arts (Monet), construction (Colosseum), science and discovery (Galileo). Numeracy and Literacy are explored in these rooms during play based activities. Social and emotional wellbeing and children’s rights are at the heart of everything we do.

The word Koobidja is defined as ‘smallest child’ in the traditional Noongar language. Our main focus in Koobidja, is to form secure and loving relationships with our precious little babies. We take pride in the one on one interactions we can provide to these children to create these relationships, which we hope will last for their whole journey at Unicare.

We have three individual toddlers’ room that are set up with exciting and inspiring environments to encourage children’s sense of wonder. Our toddlers embark on their journey where they start to build their own identities, independence and awareness of the world they live in. They also form meaningful relationships with their educators and develop a sense of belonging to their room and Unicare as a whole.

Galileo is a Science and Discovery room and it consists of two rooms, with learning areas created to further aid our children and their ongoing development and growth. We expose our children to basic scientific equipment, experiments and we encourage discussion and reflection of our experiments and discoveries.

In Colosseum, our focus is on, but not limited to, construction and other aspects related to building. We incorporate these concepts and a hands-on approach to our curriculum, connecting our activities to knowledge about structures and the children’s specific interests as a way to guide our planning. 

Within Monet, the children learn through activities based around art, drama and music, but not only limited to these areas. The children are engaged in painting, drawing, exploring the garden and experimenting on the cultures of their peers.
