I feel that all children are unique and respond well to different teaching techniques and learning experiences.

Miss Nadia

My philosophy is about building on children’s interests to help facilitate their learning. I believe that each child is unique and learns in their own way therefore my approach to teaching is adaptable. I believe that strong relationships with families, carers and the community are essential in any child’s development. I think that children need comforting environments and bonds with educators for them to feel safe and secure. I believe that the best way to form these relationships is through taking time to know their interest and routines and building on this.

Children learn and develop at an individual rate and I believe that by providing a welcoming, supportive, stimulating and homely place where the children can express their thoughts and feelings freely, gives them the best opportunity to create strong relationships, gain confidence and develop into individual and respectful young people.

I was born into a family of teachers so it’s in my genes to teach and work with children. I have a Bachelor in Education and have been working with children aged 3 – 12 since I finished my studies 10 years ago. I was also a long time volunteer teacher in a school with children with disabilities. I strongly believe learning should be exc iting and fun, especially in the early years of development. I have also finished Certificate IV. In Yoga Teacher Training and I love to implement yoga into my teachings.  My approach is loving and caring because children need to feel safe and happy. No matter their age, I always treat them with love and respect because they are our future. And when building a future we need to invest our time, patience, love and understanding. I will always make sure your children feel safe around me, trust me and also have fun with me. Encouraging all their interests and talents and making sure they develop into people we are proud of

My belief is that all children thrive in a safe and respectful community. As an educator, I believe in providing an environment where children can share ideas, discover their individuality and be stimulated through the resources the centre provides. I aim to work in collaboration with parent, peers and children, helping to build trust, friendship and a sense of belonging within our community. I am passionate about working with children as they are active learners, who take on all challenges through social interactions and play.

Miss Natarsha

As an Educator, I believe it is my job to give the Children the love, respect and care that they need when they are in the childcare environment. As a mother of three children I feel I have a great understanding of how the children are feeling and when they need some extra love. I believe in allowing the children to direct their learning through play by allowing them to make the choice about what they want to play with, I also am a big believer in routines, if the routine is kept the same each day the children come to know what is happening and when, but also allowing for flexibility as working with children is not always predictable.

I believe children are the ones who make this world a beautiful place. In order to support them, I strive to provide a safe, comfortable, stimulating, fun and educational environment with a structured day plans. I aim to help children develop confidence and positive self-esteem throughout their learning. I value and respect each child’s ethnicity, their cultural background, and beliefs. I will help them to learn to respect and value each person’s belief’s and ethical values. I believe that it is important to talk with children about their emotions and Reponses to events with a view to supporting their understanding of emotional regulation and self-control, explained by Kohlberg’s Moral Development theory.
