Bambini House has two separate classrooms for the younger and older children; truly inspiring spaces for the children to engage, relate, learn and converse.
The foundations of the house are an aesthetic joy in themselves; rustic fireplaces, mantelpieces, bay windows, lead-lighting and arched doorways draw the children in and beg them to stay. Each room is alive with colour, texture and soothing sounds; a seamless blend of decoration, artwork, books, building materials, art supplies and natural materials.
The classrooms encourage the children to participate, discover, explore and investigate. Language, literacy and numeracy are not isolated. Rather, they are explored through a variety of mediums and learning experiences; those which excite and engage the individual child.
Our teachers and educators encourage intelligence through imagination; we use art as a language to represent ideas and express emotions; drawing, painting and sculpture are regular activities that promote creative thinking as are performance; music, dancing, dramatic play and puppetry.
Each room has a dedicated literacy area which features a range of picture and non-fiction books; a construction space with coloured and natural blocks, puzzles, nuts and bolts and manipulative materials; and an array of treasures from nature: stones, pebbles, foliage, petals, sticks, leaves, pods and seeds.
