"SUPPORTIVE ENVIRONMENTS ARE CARING, CULTURALLY RESPONSIVE LEARNING COMMUNITIES

The conditions for learning include the experience of physical, emotional, and identity safety; connectedness; and engagement and challenge. These opportunities include engaging, scaffolded activities that support young people in combining their past knowledge and experiences with what they are currently experiencing and learning. Rich learning environments provide intentional opportunities for children and youth to practice and apply new skills, reflect on program activities, receive ongoing support, and provide feedback.”

our services
The delivery of our services are designed to reflect the needs of the children

All our programmes are provided in accordance with the requirements of the school and Club Engage Centre Policies and Procedures.

In collaboration with the school, and supporting its values and ethos, our programmes will be tailored to complement the curriculum and themes running in the school. The weekly theme is explored each day via planned, fun activities that are designed to link to the THE NAA STANDARDS FOR QUALITY SCHOOL - AGE CARE

According to the USA based NAA - The Core Knowledge, Skills and Competencies for Out-of-School Time Professionals (CKSCs) are grouped into ten content areas. These content areas are categories of knowledge that are widely used in the field and based on research.

  • Child/youth growth and development
  • Learning environments and curriculum
  • Child/youth observation and assessment
  • Relationships and interactions with children and youth
  • Youth engagement, voice, and choice
  • Equity and inclusion
  • Family, School and community relationships
  • Safety and wellness
  • Program planning and development
  • Professional development and leadership

The routines below are a guide to Club Engage Programmes, but they are flexible enough to cater to children’s enthusiasm and interest on the day and can be altered to suit at the discretion of the Centre Director. At all times we aim to provide a high quality environment for children which is welcoming, safe and stimulating where children are able to enjoy learning and grow in confidence.
