Gungahlin Preschool & Early Learning Curriculum
The Montessori Curriculum offers children five key areas of study: Practical Life, Sensorial, Mathematics, Language, and Culture. Each learning area is made up of a set of Montessori materials that each teach one key knowledge area or skill. Through repetition and practice, children develop a foundational understanding of each material, and master the core competencies within each curriculum area.
The Child Care Subsidy is a government payment that reduces families out-of-pocket costs for childcare, including: Centre Based Day Care, Family Day Care or Outside School Hours Care.
Each family’s Child Care Subsidy covers a percentage of the childcare centre’s daily fees. Families pay the gap fee. If you’re new to childcare we recommend that you apply for the claim as soon as possible. For more information, you can visit Services Australia.Learn More
