Oasis Room




For children 2.5 to 4 years of age.

In the Oasis room, educators believe it is important for children to feel safe and comfortable in their surroundings. We strive to foster a sense of belonging so that children feel confident becoming involved in experiences and within the environment.

Our program is developed to meet the many and varied needs of the children through observations and striving to meet the children's emerging skills, both as individuals and as part of a group. Educators in the Oasis Room believe a partnership between carers and parents enhances the children’s overall development and well-being. Two-way communication between families and children is actively encouraged.

The environment should be “homelike”, varied and interesting. It provides consistency, safety and encourages challenges, individual needs and interests and equal opportunities to participate in all aspects of the program.

 Activities in the room include:

  •  Drawing to help develop fine motor skills, hand eye co-ordination and colour awareness
  •  Painting to develop creativity, experimentation with shapes, size, texture and colour
  •  Pasting to develop creativity, imagination, hand-eye co-ordination and problem solving skills
  •  Home corner to promote role playing and pretend play
  •  Construction to encourage sharing, problem solving and fine motor skills
  •  Water, flour and play dough play to develop tactile awareness and initial measuring skills
  •  Additional weekly activities, currently Mini Maestros and Active Start Sports
  •  Incursions and excursions, such as participation in the music program with Sapphire Aged Care.
