Preparing Children for the Future

Telephone02 9477 3627


School age children bring with them deep curiosity and potential and this innate curiosity drives their interest to understand their world and their place within it. Even as children get older and start school, play is important. It’s still how children learn and build social, emotional and thinking skills.

School-age children's thinking skills become increasingly sophisticated as they encounter new people, places, and ideas. They develop the ability to learn in abstract ways from books, art, movies, and experiences. 

BASC children are encouraged to investigate and explore, and to reflect on their experiences. By giving children a voice BASC TO THE FUTURE creates a holistic child focused approach to play, leisure and learning.

Our curriculum is in line with our framework ‘My Time Our Place’ and its 5 outcomes:

Children have a strong sense of identity.

Children are connected with and contribute to their world.

Children have a strong sense of wellbeing.

Children are confident and involved learners.

Children are effective communicators.

We pride ourselves on the Educational Program of our service which is called BASC TO THE FUTURE. The Educational Program is displayed at all times for you to read and give feedback on. Please feel free to ask questions from our Educational Leader or make any suggestions about the Educational Program. Evaluations and reflections on our Educational program are located on the BASC TO THE PAST noticeboard. Families are encouraged to read through our documentation of the children’s learning.
