Drama Spot

Meet new friends, learn new skills and find your voice in our small, inclusive classes for kids aged 5 to 15.

Drama Spot (formally Lane Cove Drama Centre) has been a much-loved part of
the community since 2007.

Our commitment is not just to create strong and creative communicators but
to enrich the lives of young people by providing them with skills for life.

Drama Spot recognises that each child is unique and brings a wide diversity of
life experiences to our classes. Our flexible, child-centred approach to our
program acknowledges each student’s contribution and strives to empower,
challenge and inspire them to unlock their full potential as autonomous and
active creators.

Our non-competitive and inclusive methodology is designed to deepen
thinking, stimulate imagination and self-expression and encourage empathy,
resilience, problem solving and lateral thinking. Through working both
individually and collaboratively, Drama Spot students are provided with the
opportunity to become the writers, directors, designers, performers and
evaluators of their own work. This fosters confidence, self-esteem and
promotes co-operation communication skills.

The Blue Umbrella – Currambena OOSH

A little haven tucked away where kids run around barefoot, climb trees, play freely with whats around them, eat where they choose and are truly drivers in their own educational experiences.

The Blue Umbrella is a parent-run, not-for-profit Out Of School Hours service established in 2016 and run in the beautiful grounds of Currambena Pre-school and Primary. We offer after school care and vacation care to the families of the school and to the wider community. We have a license limit of 30 children in each session and an age range of 3 years upwards, this means we are just like a big family! We have a strong belief that their time is not an extension of the school day but that the children are absolutely free to do whatever their imaginations desire.

We have a dedicated space within the schools main building equipped with a small library and reading corner, enough craft supplies to satisfy the most creative of makers and a fully functioning kitchen. But our biggest resource is the glorious, natural environments within the grounds that allow the children’s curiosity and imagination to run wild and their spirits to soar. Sandpit, tree houses/cubbies, veggie and flower gardens, chickens free roaming, an awesome tunnel slide and a variety of terrains, all to keep their curious minds occupied and challenge without them even realising.

At The Blue Umbrella the children interact in mixed age groups with the ‘elders’ leading the way for the younger children. This enables everyone in the group to feel safe, accepted and most importantly have fun!

Sydney Speech Clinic

Speech Pathologists and Occupational Therapists are professionally trained to assess, diagnose and treat a wide range of developmental differences and ultimately aim to help individuals in their daily activities, relationships and communication skills.

Sydney Speech Clinic offers Individualised 1:1 Therapy and Group Programs in order to support clients in working towards their goals. Individual sessions are highly tailored to each person’s specific goals whilst group sessions promote peer learning in an interactive, motivating and supportive group environment. We currently have 1:1 therapy appointments and group programs available for Term 2 at certain times.

Our group programs are designed to supplement a child’s learning in other environments by building on existing skills and allowing for generalisation across situations. Most importantly, these groups encourage the children in the group to learn from one another. We often find that children thrive in this group setting, and emerge feeling more confident and empowered. Group programs offer a reliable and affordable way of maximising your child’s exposure to learning.

All services are evidence-based, and carefully planned and facilitated by qualified speech pathologists and/or occupational therapists.
