From our Director Kyla Littley
Fun Club @ Lakelands support that all children are diverse in their own way, we understand and accept that children may come from a variety of cultures and may come with different cultural beliefs. We aim to encourage all families and children to accept one another, and learn from one another. Our service aims to build on awareness of culture, the environment and our community as we aim to contribute to initiatives supporting the world around us.
The educators constantly ensure that they provide the highest level of safety while encouraging the children to have fun and explore their uniqueness through creative arts, STEM, literacy and active play. The educators aim to provide an environment where children can be themselves. We encourage all our children to have a voice in our centre and constantly work together to provide an educational program which is driven by the children’s interests and needs. Our team always works hard to create strong relationships with our families and children, and we try our best to always support our families daily.
