You may have noticed our large A3 scrapbook (usually near the sign in/out area) at both of our centres.  This is our center's learning journal!  This is a place for the children and educators to document learning & activities.

We have only started using a learning journal towards the end of last year & the children have loved being involved in documenting what they have been up to or what they would like to do at the centre.

The educators use the learning journal to inform our program!  For example, we ask the children to document what food they want the following week - we will then base our food program on these suggestions.  This is the same with the sports chosen for our active after school program.

We also ask families, if they have the chance, to write us comments and suggestion in our learning journal too!

Our aim is to ensure our program is always reflective of children's, families & educator's voices.
