Mountain Community Children's Centre
Our Snake Room caters for up to 20 children aged 4 - 5 years daily.
In the Snake Room there is a focus on literacy and numeracy programs which are incorporated in all play and activity areas of the room. This assists with our school readiness program which supports our children's school preparation.
At the Centre, we encourage independence within each child. The development their self help skills in regard to looking after their belongings is supported along with extending their fine motor skills with scissor and pencil grips.
Daily group time develops confidence within each child as they are encouraged to participate in the relevant topics being discussed and each child regularly presents their "news" to the group, thus assisting the child to speak publicly in front of their peers. Group time also helps improve the children's concentration span, all supporting each child's progress towards "big school"!
