At the Arnhem Early Learning we believe it is important for children to feel safe and comfortable in their surroundings. We strive to foster a sense of belonging so that children feel confident becoming involved in experiences and offer play based learning within the environment.
We welcome and value parent input and encourage parents to take advantage of our open door policy. We understand families are the children’s first and most influential educators and we aim to work in partnership with all families and share children’s attempts and successes together.
In consultation with parents we will provide programs and experiences that give children the opportunity to make choices and take on new challenges. Our programs will reflect the needs and interests of every child and we will provide opportunities for children to further develop their social, emotional, cognitive, physical, language and self help skills.
Our objective for our children is to explore the many different aspects of the environment; demonstrate real life experiences, expand children’s curiosity and thinking, and acknowledge and respect the diversity of all children’s backgrounds.
We strive to provide an accepting environment where the gender, additional needs, cultural and socio economic background of the staff, children, families and community as a whole are respected and catered for.
Our philosophy and goals come in line with the Early Years Framework (Belonging, Being and Becoming). This will reflect our practices and decisions and guide all activities within our Centre.
Our goal is to guide children positively through their everyday life experiences, model appropriate behaviours, show genuine affection, understanding and respect for all children so they can reach their full potential; Learning Through Discovery.
