Our community, your team
Our communityOur child care and early education centres reflect the community in which we live. Creating connections within the wider community benefits society as a whole by creating a network of unity and support.
Learning about our local services and resources offers children a way to broaden their knowledge and develop a more well-rounded and comprehensive understanding of their surroundings, contributing to a greater sense of belonging.
Our centres also offer children practical, authentic opportunities for active community participation through initiating community projects and responding to the changing needs of the community. As children work towards a common goal within their community, they gain new knowledge, demonstrate agency, display consideration and compassion and develop their dispositions for learning.
Planning and enacting real-life activities develop children’s awareness of their social responsibility as a member of the broader community. Rich, collaborative experiences have a widespread impact and support children to meaningfully connect and contribute to their world.
Establishing positive partnerships with community services also provides a platform for families to engage with services to improve their health, education and wellbeing. Our role in educating and caring for children extends beyond our child care and early education centres to support families in the complex, yet rewarding role of raising children.
We seek to offer innovative and resourceful ways to create connections and provide valuable information on play-based learning, child development, daily routines and parenting practices in addition to interactive ideas including creative and physical activities.
We can’t wait to welcome you at our centre and demonstrate this valuable connection with our community firsthand.
