Play-based Learning for all children
Learning through play is a term used in early education to describe how a child can learn and make sense of the world around them through interaction in social settings with other children.
Benefits of Play
Play allows children to learn, discover, create and imagine. They can develop social and cognitive skills, mature emotionally, and gain the self-confidence required to engage in new experiences and environments.
Early Learning at Oz Education Boambee East
In our purpose-built early learning environments children can move through play, led by their interests. It challenges the ways they think and allows new understanding and learning to take place.
Transitioning to a big school can be a big step for the whole family. Our Boambee East’s preschool program taught by university-qualified Early Childhood teachers helps your child to become school-ready.
Boambee Preschool Program
