Excursions & Incursions

Exposing the children to regular incursions and excursions improves a number of their skills and enhances children’s experiences by allowing them to engage in meaningful ways with their communities.

We’ve got numerous incursion and excursions planned for our learning centres in Stanhope Gardens and Wetherill Park.

This month in Stanhope Gardens we are planning to go to our local library for book week. This will allow the children to read book of their choice and relate to their favourite character.

Helps children see learning in the outside world

  • Incursions and Excursions give our children the opportunity to learn through new experiences.
  • This allows them to understand that learning can happen anytime and anywhere, not just in the classroom

Enhances problem solving and life survival skills

  • Excursions and incursion expose children to all sorts of new scenarios and experiences.
  • These experiences get their young minds working and learning about different problem and solutions.
  • They get to learn how to think on their feet and come up with new and inventive solutions to various new experiences.

Develops social and communication skills

  • Meeting and engaging with new people help children develop their social skills.
  • Through incursions and excursions, they get to meet new people as well as be exposed to new scenarios. This, in turn, helps them learn how to express themselves by describing what they like and don’t about each activity, any questions they may have and so on.
  • It’s also a great way for the to interact with people from different ages.
  • By developing these skills enhances their confidence and builds their self-esteem as they get older and start to interact in the world on their own.

Listening skills Team building

  • Incursions and Excursions give the children the opportunity to use their listening skills to learn about the world outside of care whilst being exposed to different experiences.
  • This allows the children to build more relationships with other children that they normally don’t relate to. In doing this also allows the children to be in groups which will expose them to different experiences that will enhance their team building skills in different situations.
