Our Extra-Curricular Program (ECP)

Here at Little Learners EDEC, we believe that children should be able to experience a wide variety of activities that will broaden their horizons and spark their imaginations.

In 2016 we launched our Extra-Curricular Program (ECP).

The ECP is inclusive, engaging, interactive and fun and runs for the length of the school term (approximately ten weeks). 

Each activity has a theme and a ten-week lesson plan. For example during Term One we run Sports and the theme was Soccer.

Each day during the school term we offer two separate activities that run concurrently with each activity lasting twenty minutes per age group:

  • Babies: Ages 0-2
  • Toddlers: Ages 2-3
  • Kindy: Ages 3-5

For example on Monday the Toddler's might do Sign Language for 20 minutes followed by Spanish for 20 minutes.

Throughout the course of each week we run ten activities.

To see what we are running this term please see the timetable below:

ECP Continued

Throughout the course of the year children will engage in a wide variety of activities such as:

  • Foreign Languages: Spanish, Japanese, Indonesian & Sinhalese
  • AUSLAN Sign Language
  • Yoga & Meditation
  • Sustainability – Composting, Gardening, Worm Farms & Noongar Bush Tucker
  • Science
  • Sports – AFL, Soccer & Netball
  • Noongar Culture
  • Sinhalese Culture
  • Nutrition
  • Music
  • Dance 
  • Numeracy & Literacy

Our in-house specialist educators run our activities and the activities are structured to allow participation for all age groups, at no extra cost, FREE of charge!

If you don’t want your child to participate please let us know and we will arrange an alternative activity for them.

Please note that there will also be lots of unstructured time outdoors in our awesome naturescape playground, as the value of learning through unstructured play should not be underestimated.
