The Learning Environment at Gumnut Pre-Kinder is a one room centre adjacent to Shoalhaven Anglican School in Milton.
Included in the room are various discovery areas, including construction, dramatic play, collage, science, writing and painting. Experiences that are set up in these areas provoke children’s interest while developing individual skills. GumNut aims to create an atmosphere that promotes learning in a relaxed, tranquil environment which reflects the Reggio Emilia teaching approach.
The Learning Environment at Gumnut Pre-Kinder boasts an extensive natural outdoor environment. Large shady trees, stone paths, a natural water course, bridges, large sandpit, cubby house, tee-pees, a hammock, raised vegetable gardens, compost bins, a worm farm, large grass areas for running and ball games combine to provide children alternatives that stimulate imagination, encourage social interaction, challenge thinking, promote discovery learning and develop skills in all areas.
