At Nest Early Learning Centre we believe that early childhood is a unique and privileged stage of life. We believe that children are confident, capable and resourceful learners who are competent in developing their own knowledge of the world around them.
At Nest Early Learning Centre we aim to provide a warm, safe, caring, and stimulating environment that is natural, inviting, rich in possibilities, and meets the developmental needs of each child. We aim to build relationships that support children to:
• Feel a sense of belonging, wellbeing and a strong sense of identity
• See themselves as active contributors and participants in their world.
• become strong in their social and emotional wellbeing
• Learn appreciation of, and respect for others and their learning capabilities
• Be effective and confident communicators within the community.
Working in partnership with families, educators and co-ordinators we use these outcomes to guide our daily planning for children’s learning (Early Years Learning Framework, p.9). Our team of educators make curriculum decisions that uphold all children’s rights to have their cultures, identities, abilities and strengths acknowledged and valued and respond to the complexity of children’s and families’ lives (Early Years Learning Framework, p.14). We endeavour to work in collaboration with children and in partnership with families, educators and co-ordinators and use these outcomes to guide our planning for children’s wellbeing.
We believe that each child comes to our centre with a different set of experiences, knowledge and interests and we seek to build on the child's home experience and acknowledge the range of diverse lifestyles of families. We recognise the importance of creating a link between your home and the Centre, where both parents and educators work in partnership to develop the child as a whole in a mutually supportive and caring environment.
We have a genuine regard for all children and their language, culture and achievements. The family is valued and their diverse backgrounds are accepted, empowered, challenged and reflected in our programs through anti-bias education.
We aim to both deliver and promote the delivery of a holistic based program that incorporates physical, Intellectual, social, emotional, environmental and spiritual health within the early childhood setting. (Donatelle, R. 2006). We believe that children’s learning is ongoing and each child will progress towards outcomes in different and equally meaningful ways. Learning is not always predictable and linear. Educators and co-ordinators plan with each child and the outcomes in mind. Our team draw on rich repertoire of pedagogical practices to promote children’s learning by creating physical and social learning environments that have a positive impact on children’s development. Educators are actively engaged in children’s learning and share with them the decision-making.
We believe that children learn best through play based activities and through this we use a range of strategies to support and encourage children’s learning. Educators encourage children to explore, solve problems, create and construct their learning environments. Children become involved by providing interest based activities, which enables them to develop their capabilities and at the same time build on needs and challenge their strengths. Educators scaffold children’s learning during play, routines and on-going projects to stimulate children’s thinking and to enrich their learning. Our programs are created to assist your child’s development in all areas for success now and in later years and to equip them with the necessary tools to deal with life.
"Educators' practices and the relationships they form with children and families have a significant effect on children's involvement and success in learning. Children thrive when families and educators' work together in partnership to support young children's learning." (Early Years Learning Framework, 2009). We work to support families in their parenting role and share with them information of benefit to their child’s development. We encourage families to be active participators in any and every aspect of Nest Early Learning Centre.
As a dedicated team of childcare professionals, we will work in collaborative ways to share our professional knowledge and skills. Working in partnership with children, families, communities, and other services and agencies, we will continuously strive to find equitable and affective ways to ensure that all children enrolled within our service have opportunities to experience a sense of personal worth and achieve learning outcomes; these partnerships are inclusive of those children with additional needs. We understand the need for continuous improvement and the importance of reflective practice within our service. We are committed to on-going professional development.
“When you give children a voice, you spark an imagination that not only recreates the world, but that which redefines your own place and understanding of it.” – Alexander Pavlov – World fit For Children Founder
