AS part of its exploration of the natural environment the Online Child Care Centre took its kindy and pre-kindy children on excursions to see the overflow at Wellington Dam.

The children visited the dam on two separate occasions and families were encouraged to take them and their other children to enjoy the spectacle of the overflow.

Early childhood teacher Jessica Gardiner, influenced by the Reggio Emilia Approach to learning, provides a project-based programme for the children.

The project approach involves exploring a topic of interest to them through an in-depth inquiry process and by providing a range of experiences which cater for different learning abilities and learning styles.

The visits to Wellington Dam provoked an interest in the purpose, use and construction of dams.

The children explored the properties of water, the water cycle, water sources, where water comes from and why we need dams.

They then moved on to examine how water is used, specifically focusing on water use in their community and participated in a range of activities, including visiting the local hairdressers, dog wash, laundromat and car wash.

They watched a baby being bathed, took part in cooking activities and had the Brunswick Fire Department visit to demonstrate how to use the hose.

The children originally believed Wellington Dam was used to provide drinking water but their ideas changed after experiments which involved looking at salt water and salinity.

The children then began to explore the force of water and movement and also capacity through play-based experiences.

Throughout the programme the questions of why people build dams, why the Wellington Dam was constructed and what it is used for were explored.

The dam’s local flora and fauna came under scrutiny and the children talked about river safety and examined the history, culture and significance of the Collie River.

The project ended with the children working in small groups of three to four to design, sketch and construct a dam.

A visit by South West Region MP Adele Farina last Friday enabled the children to share their story of their Wellington Dam project with her.

Each group of children were able to share their planning and their final construction of their dam with Ms Farina. The morning ended with a morning tea.
