Playschool (2-5 Years)

What makes our Playschool different from others?

We have a very low teacher:child ratio, so children receive the support they need from our teachers and therapists, who have experience in working with children with a full range of learning challenges. We are also an inclusive Playschool, so typically developing children are welcomed and can also benefit from the low teacher; child ratios and adapted curriculum.
We offer a fun, language-enriched environment and cutting edge, research-based learning methodologies, which include Hanen strategies.

Speech and language therapy and occupational therapy are integrated throughout to help children to develop their communication, motor and play skills.

Our teacher, Ms. Charli, with support from Ms. Shanae, is an expert at thinking outside the box and applying creative mediums such as art, music, movement and technology to allow young minds to flourish. Ms. Charli is also a qualified speech and language therapist and can help children with their communication needs during all activities.
Children receive multi-disciplinary assessments and we work together as a team to identify individual goals for each child.

Morning sessions are  Monday through Friday from 9.00-12.00 p.m. and afternoon sessions from 1.00-4.00 p.m.
Please contact us today to arrange a visit to see the Playschool in action and to pick up an information pack. For more details or to enrol your child, call Roz on 926 1693.
 
A word from our Director about Chatterbox Playschool:
“This is something I have been interested in launching throughout my whole career as a Speech and Language Therapist. For many years, I have seen children who need a little extra support and a modified curriculum, which supports their unique skills to build on the areas of learning that are more challenging for them. By having the opportunity to integrate therapy and other specific goals into the learning environment by trained teachers and therapists, a child can be immersed in fun activities which help to facilitate language, cognitive and behaviour skills.”
 
A word from our previous Teacher about Chatterbox Playschool:
The idea is simple. It’s a school for early childhood education that integrates speech and language therapy, occupational therapy and pivotal response therapy throughout the day. We use the Hanen approach and follow the children’s interests, whilst constantly introducing them to new and interesting opportunities to further those interests and to learn.
 
The Playschool is exactly what the name says – a place for children to come and learn to play, learn to care for themselves and to talk, socialise, have fun and explore their environment.
 
We have a great team and one that is constantly working to embrace all teaching styles and therapies that help children to combine learning with fun :)”  Lindsay Lopez
