At Highfields Childcare Centre, we use a holistic approach to incorporate all areas of learning and development for early childhood education in Toowoomba. This has a specific emphasis on play-based learning and health and creativity, recognising the importance of communication, language, numeracy, social and emotional development.
It is our belief that all children bring their perspectives, expectations, knowledge and skills to their learning experience. Our programs are child-focused and inspired by children’s curiosity and imagination, designed to nurture the development and growth of each child. Healthy habits and general wellbeing are crucial for a child’s early development and that’s why we incorporate them into our everyday programs.
We believe exercise and a healthy diet are the keys to a healthy mind. By eating the right food and getting the right amount of physical activity each day, children are given the best possible opportunity to develop and learn. To ensure our students receive the right levels of nutrition, our food plans are designed to meet the Nutritional Guidelines Australia, and in line with Eat Well Australia.
We also teach our students about the benefits of getting outside and participating in physical exercise. Our staff promote a wide variety of sports and outdoor play activities to get our student’s bodies and minds working together in a fun and safe environment.
