Ballykin Early Learning Centres

At Ballykin we care, with the needs and wellbeing of each child at the core of everything we do. We believe in community and take a collaborative approach to the education of the children. We work closely with our families, listening to their needs and sharing our insights and perspectives.

Our Approach

Community is at the heart of everything we do - the children, our families, the Ballykin team and those in our local neighbourhood. We have created a diverse and inclusive environment where the children are nurtured and inspired to become curious, creative thinkers, able to embrace change and share their experiences.

Ballykin children are encouraged to explore their environment and to develop their own personal interests. This is achieved during extended blocks of play, as well as spontaneous and planned group experiences, and project work. The Ballykin curriculum values the importance of play based learning and follows the Early Years Learning Framework.

Our educational program promotes each child’s ability to think critically, be curious, problem solve and take calculated risks. Intentional teaching which is reflective of the children’s interests and current knowledge, guides the implementation of learning experiences across Language and Literacy, STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering Maths), Sustainability, the Creative Arts and Health and Wellbeing.
