Narromine Preschool - Laura Green, Director

“The children have responded very well to the implementation of the iKiRulz. We have noticed children are more empowered to handle challenging situations confidently and independently before seeking adult intervention. They are provided with a vocabulary to express their feelings that is easy to understand and remember through catchy songs and actions. Families have been asking questions about the ‘look, listen, no play, no play song’ because their children are going home singing this to their siblings and even their family pets. It has been a very positive experience for children and they look forward to the scheduled iKi time each day”.

 

 

Regand Park Early Childhood Education Centre, Dubbo - Justine Richards, Director

“We have seen such a difference in the children’s autonomy since implementing the program. They are confident in expressing themselves and are implementing the rules themselves within their play to ensure a safe, respectful environment for all. The program has assisted our Educators in teaching children about empathy towards others and we have found the whole environment has become a lot more positive, accepting and respectful of human differences. The children also love the iKiFit component where they get to dance and sing along using their iKi Sticks. It has been such a powerful and positive experience for all and the children are proud of their Power Positive Names and keen to show off their moves!” - Justine Richards, Director/Owner

Little Diggers Pre-School and Child Care Centre, Lightning Ridge

At Little Diggers, the kids love doing their iKi Energisers regularly and often receive help from the iKi Crew students of Lightning Ridge Central School. This provides an opportunity for the students from LRCS to gain leadership skills and to model positive behaviours for the children of Little Diggers. The iKi Energisers engage the children in day to day activities, providing fun, interactive exercise that focus on key fundamental movement skills appropriate for each age group and room. The iKi principles, highlight clear, realistic, context appropriate behaviour expectations for the centre and give the children clear consequences, both reward and repercussion. The principles are designed to make each day, safe, fair and fun for EVERYONE!

Tots on Temoin, Trangie - Nerida George, Director & Sharna Kennedy, Professional Learning

iKiSRL is a wonderful toolkit for lifelong learning. iKiSRL principles value education, respect for oneself and those around you as well as fairness, justice and diversity. It encourages children to work towards becoming the best versions of themselves and is applicable across the five early years learning framework outcomes.

iKiSRL enables children to become confident within their environment as it defines boundaries and sets clear and consistent expectations of behaviour for both children and educators. The ‘language’ of iKi is catchy, simple and effective. We have noticed children are using the words from iKiSRL positively to regulate their own behaviour as well as that of others.

We hear ‘’you’re not doing the right thing- no play, no play- move away’. Even the under twos put a hand up and say "no play". A wonderful display that iKiSRL works and is meaningful to the children and staff alike!
