His worship the Mayor Logan Howlett and Deputy Mayor Lara Kirkwood officially open our 8 STEAM based Specialist Programs, the Art Studio and Art Gallery.
After a beautiful, and very smoky Smoking Ceremony, His Worship the Mayor Logan Howlett and Deputy Mayor Lara Kirkwood cut the ribbon during the Official Opening of Leap Start Early Learning Child Care’s 8 STEAM based Specialist Programs, the brand-new Art Studio and foyer Art Gallery.
They were helped by some of the younger members of Leap Start’s family and cheered on by a large crowd of attendees and invited VIPs.
This opening had long been coming, but due to COVID we had to postpone it a few times.
We made it even more special with beautifully set up grazing platters, chilled beverages and hot food which were enjoyed by all while mixing and mingling.
Our children were proud to see their artworks being auctioned off in a silent art auction, our lovely families had the chance to meet the owners of this beautiful place and staff had a chance to showcase their amazing achievements.
Leap Start always had a focus on high quality early childhood education with a special focus on Music, Languages, and the Arts.
Our WAAPA trained Music Teacher composes Leap Start’s own action-packed songs and facilitates daily music sessions, but we did not want to stop there.
Instead of being disheartened during last year’s COVID lockdown we went all out and developed 8 additional Specialist Programs to make each day a fun and exciting STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, Mathematics) Learning Opportunity for our children:
- Little Symphonies: Daily Music Sessions for each age group
- Little Symphonie Singers: Musical Performance Classes for our 3 – 6-year-old children in our beautiful new Art Studio
- Little Steppers: Dance Classes for our 3 – 6-year-old children in our beautiful new Art Studio
- Little Lingo Learners: Daily Mandarin Language sessions for all children
- Budding Builder: Woodwork Electronics and Robotics for our 2 – 6-year-old children
- Artificent Tots: Art Sessions for children of all ages in our wonderful new Art Studio
- Farmyard Friends: Our resident ducks Ziggy and Daisy can be visited and cared for by all children daily.
- Little Flexers – Relaxation sessions for all children
