About us
 
 

 

Our Early Childhood Program is based on a process oriented curriculum that fosters each child's individual development. We emphasise the important role the Centre plays in nurturing and educating the children through the development of trust, security and loving relationships.

Our philosophy is founded on the principle that early childhood development must focus on the Social, Physical, Imaginative, Cognitive and Emotional (SPICE) curriculum to ensure all-round development of our children.

Principles and practices that best support our vision and the developmental needs of our children are:

Supporting parents in their role as primary caregivers and sharing information of benefit to the development of their child

Valuing play as a medium for all aspects of development and learning

Acknowledging and supporting children's individual learning styles

Valuing the arts as symbol systems through which children discover and express meaning and make sense of themselves and their world

Providing opportunities for discovery, learning through self-selected activities, and encouraging the development of the child's abilities to observe, perceive, explore, investigate, imagine and solve problem

Valuing positive reinforcement of appropriate behaviour, thereby nurturing self discipline and parent-supported value systems

Valuing daily routines such as eating, toileting, dressing and resting as opportunities for learning and social development

Respecting the needs and rights of children to make choices and decisions, by empowering them to take responsibility for the functioning of parts of the daily routines

Providing opportunities for children to develop responsibility by encouraging them to take care of their immediate environment and materials

Valuing the cultures of the children attending the Centre through presentation of relevant cultural activities

Recognising the need for children to practice skills and consolidate their learning by providing opportunities for repetitive experiences and extension of their ideas

Designing and establishing an enriched environment that stimulates the imagination, promotes creativity and enhances aesthetic development and appreciation of nature

Valuing and supporting staff in their work with children and families as well as in their own professional development

Being responsive to the needs of the community and abiding by the relevant laws and policies that relate to the provision of quality child care service
