To holistically grow and develop, it takes more then just the day to day play at childcare. We also work closely with our local communities to provide both incursion and excursion programs.
Our KingKids children love the childcare excursions and incursions we have as part of our early learning curriculum program.
Excursions and incursions are an important part of our activities as they provide valuable opportunities for children to build their confidence, explore new things and enhance their social and safety skills. This also helps them develop the skills needed as they eventually move on to primary school.
As one of the key focuses at KingKids is sustainability, we take the opportunity to show children our natural environment, like parks and gardens, along with activities around environmental sustainability.
When running our weekly incursion programs, we look at the development of children to inform what sort of program we look to run. This is because we believe that these valuable learning opportunities should be used to support children’s holistic growth and development.
Both our incursion programs (bringing external programs into our service) and excursion programs (taking the children to do an activity out in the community) are offered to all age groups. Whenever we plan to leave the service for a community excursion, parent permissions will be sought along with a risk minimisation plan to ensure the health and safety of each of our children.
