Did you know that the first five years of your child’s life are where change and growth happen faster than any other age? At Okinja, our educators understand the importance of this time in your child’s development. Highly qualified, dedicated and experienced, our educators are committed to fostering a love of learning in your child.
If a dragonfly lands on your head, it is good luck. Similarly, if a dragonfly lands on your childcare centre, it is equally good luck. Okinja is home to a beautiful, handcrafted timber dragonfly that sits in our children’s play area. It’s delicate wings and long body represents change, transition and adaptability. These are the values that we aim to foster in children under our care. Fostering these values helps children to grow into successful adults, who are not only excited to explore the world, but who are capable of doing it.
We use pedagogy techniques to promote play-based learning. By providing children with play-based learning opportunities, we encourage them to think about what they are learning, what they want to learn and what they already know. At Okinja we believe that learning is a lifelong journey, and we want to support children as they take the first steps of this journey.
