Our potential stretches as far as our imaginations – but only if we are given the confidence to take it there.
Potential, combined with our unique abilities that we develop from an early age, form the very makeup of who we are and who we will become. The Reggio Emilia approach pays close attention to the relationships that children share with their environment, such as family, peers and teachers.
Your child will help set the curriculum
It’s only natural that children who are regarded in a warm and positive light will always succeed at a higher level than those who are judged in a limited or negative way.
The Reggio Emilia approach in our Parramatta child care centres is to co-construct the curriculum with the children and their families to stimulate a free and open-sourced style of learning.
The approach encourages both children and teachers to brainstorm and discuss topics of interest. Children are encouraged to develop skills in problem solving, hypothesising, critical reflection and collaboration. They will be asked to document their ideas, knowledge and understanding in a variety of ways.
It’s all about family
The relationships between a child and their family is of paramount importance in determining a their enthusiasm towards learning. This is why we work hand-in-hand with all family members, to foster a strong community spirit. Ultimately, we want our Parramatta child care centre to feel like a home outside of home.
Child Care Educators that care
For our child care centres we handpick only passionate and driven individuals who strive towards developing the bright minds of tomorrow. We’ll work hand-in-hand with you to develop suitable goals for your child. All staff undergo monthly training programs, as well as Mentoring & Professional Development courses so that their skills are always to the highest possible standard.
The ‘third educator’
Look around you. You’ll find a lesson in everything you see. We refer to the environments in our Parramatta child care centre, surrounding the children as the ‘third educator’.
If our child care centre environment is fun, your child’s mind will be stimulated. We encourage them to use their imaginations to learn, create and socialise. Colours, lights, designs, natural and man-made resources all make up the daily lesson in our Parramatta child care centres.
Parents will receive daily calls about their child’s care and transition during the first three weeks of care
Educators complete a weekly communication book for each child outlining the week’s highlights and projects. Feel free to write a comment back so educators can include your input into your child’s program.
A daily journal is recorded for each room and these are emailed to parents in the afternoon so you can keep up to date about the events and projects in the room. We also host a monthly newsletter.
