Explore & Develop - Penrith South Centre overview

Welcome to Explore & Develop - Penrith South

Our surrounding streets (Derby Street and Lethbridge Street) provide a variety of specialists,, medical centres and other professional establishments.

Explore & Develop Penrith South fosters an emergent curriculum.  Generally speaking, this means that when educators program and plan for children they are using children’s interests to do this. Explore & Develop Penrith South have a play-based learning style which allows children to explore, wonder and be curious in their environment. This supports children to problem solve, think rationally, use skills of trial and error, and much more.

The benefits of play can be seen as a positive approach to learning that accommodates for educator involvement. This is important as we believe that educator involvement is crucial to support each individual child in their learning. Through play and exploring their interests, children learn to be independent in their learning however recognise when they need assistance. This, in turn, allows for educators to foster and scaffold children’s learning.

Another component of our curriculum which is very important to us, is creating time for our families. We feel by doing this we are helping them feel comfortable and welcome which also allows for a connection to the child’s home which fundamentally links the child’s beliefs, culture and facilitates communication.
