Program - Possum Magic Day Care Centre in Red Hill

The developmental needs and interests of our children create the basis for programming at Possum Magic Day Care Centre. We provide a comprehensive educational program, which is implemented daily. It outlines the needs of the children in a group setting as well as meeting the children’s individual needs. 

Staff at Possum Magic Day Care Centre compile their programs from observations made on the children and the environment. Language, music, dramatic play, art, craft and all motor skills are offered through learning experiences that are age appropriate and bring out each child’s personal best.

  • The weekly programs are always displayed in the room and can be made available to parents on request.
  • Programs are regularly sent home with families for parent review and comments.
  • Please let staff know if you would like to collect a copy for each week.
  • Parents are encouraged to give feedback, add comments and share ideas that can be incorporated into the weekly program.
