Capable & Dedicated staff

 
All our staff, whether working with the children in classrooms or working in the office, are highly qualified and experienced working within the Early Childhood sector and have the appropriate academic qualifications for their roles.The teachers are all university qualified Early Childhood Teachers and have been approved by NSW Standards Authority (NESA). Our Educators all hold Diplomas or Certificates in Early Childhood Education and Care and administrative and managerial staff hold appropriate qualifications for their positions.

Our Early Childhood Teachers and Educators undertake professional development oppurtunities regularly which enable them to reflect on, and implement, current research and best practice.

Our service operates with above required ratios of adults to children with each of our preschool groups having core staff of an EC Teacher and Diploma qualified Educators at all times.


 
 
 
 
 

Relationships

 
To develop, encourage and nurture positive relationships with families and children, each preschool group has core staff who work with the same group of children all year, thus being able to develop good relationships and give consistent support to each child in each room. The Teachers and Educators can then plan and implement programs that consolidate the children's social and emotional learning throughout the year.

While recognising our Teachers and Educators as individuals, they are encouraged to act consistently with acceptance, respect and inclusion towards everyone, which helps to create important positive relationships with children and families.
