Investigating and exploring through play and other creative experiences will allow children to grow and us as educator will grow and learn from them. My aim is to provide a Welcoming environment for both the children and families to allow a happy, trusting and supporting community..

Mr John

All children have the right to be children and should be able to enjoy this stage of their life to the fullest. I believe in the importance of play based learning and social interactions in child development. I truly enjoy being able to help children along in their journey of learning and discovery. My aim is to create a fun filled, caring, playful, multicultural and inviting environment for all children to feel comfortable being in and have fun learning from.

Miss Patti

I believe that children are innately inquisitive, curious thinkers of the world around them. They thrive on rich engaging and active experiences which foster their development and developing sense of self. I see my role as being a facilitator; guiding, supporting and providing a caring, safe positive environment that nurture children’s development

The environment plays a key role in the success of an early childhood program. The environment enhances the children’s interests in all developmental domains. I believe learning in an early childhood setting is most successful through stations that can be visited, explored, and revisited over and over again. The environment needs to take into consideration the social skills, communication skills, physical abilities or challenges, and learning styles of the children being served.

I am committed to working in partnership with families to create open, honest and respectful relationships, as well as respecting families’ cultures and beliefs

Senior Educator BASC and Vacation Care

Miss Carly

I believe every child should be able to learn at their own pace, in a safe, happy and fun environment.  I feel it is important to give children emotional and educational support in every way possible. It’s extremely important to me that children are seen and heard and guided.

I love the fact that I can make a difference in a child’s day by providing them a day that is playful and fun and finding out their true potential.

As a chef,  I believe that healthy eating is the key to fuelling children’s bodies and minds. Positive attitudes toward food and developing healthy eating habits helps cultivate and encourage children’s growth, physical development and healthy brain functioning. Good nutrition underpins children’s holistic development and the eating habits formed in early childhood significantly influence our eating habits as adults.

As a childhood educator, my philosophy is about building on children’s interests to help facilitate their learning and supplying healthy meals to support their brain function.

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.

Miss Rachel

My belief is that every child is unique, and require a stimulating educational environment in which they can grow physically, mentally, emotionally and socially. I have a strong interest in mental health and I believe it is important to ensure I give your child a warm, welcoming environment, just like home, so they feel safe and secure. I will endeavour to support your family situation and culture with open communication between myself, your family and all educator.

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.

I believe children need the assurance of being loved and cared for while they are enjoying an educational environment. I believe children learn through play and I will provide opportunities for children to discover, explore, imagine and create. Teaching children is my passion and the goal of my program is to make their ongoing learning experience safe, positive and fun as I strive to guide them to have confidence in themselves and an excitement for continued learning.

Educator/ Special Needs

Miss Sky

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.

As an educator I believe my job is to guide and help children creating a warm safe environment.  I believe that each child has their own right to a safe and caring environment. Not only does this helps their self-development but engages the children to develop later in life into safe respectful individuals. Each child is different in every way which makes being an educator so enjoyable.

Miss Kirra

I believe that it is our job to guide children during the ups and downs as each child has a specific individual need and that is my duty of care to accept. Our job is to nurture them and encourage them to take the big steps that they are sometimes afraid to take when they are growing and learning. I find that the childcare holds a part of me emotionally as there is a lot of care that gets put into our days as an educator.
