Our philosophy is guided by The Early Years Learning Framework and inspired by the Reggio Emilia approach.
All of us learn throughout our lives. It starts from the day we are born. It is recognised that the early years of life are the most important for learning. That’s when the foundations for the future are laid. The quality of a child’s early learning experiences and environment has a profound impact on that child’s life opportunities and outcomes. We never forget the qualities and strengths that make each child an individual and it is our aim to support each child to have an amazing early education experience that they will treasure for years to come.
Families are children’s first and foremost teachers, we aim to work in partnerships with families to support each child’s early learning journey. We believe children are competent and capable learners who actively guide their learning. We aim to support and extend upon children’s interests and knowledge of the world with experiences that promote children’s sense of agency, allowing them to make choices, explore, create, imagine and discover.
We have a team of professionally trained and passionate educators who aim to support each child’s learning and development individually and in groups as a co-learner and collaborator. Each child’s current knowledge, strengths, ideas, culture, abilities and interests are the foundation of our educational curriculum. Curriculum decision making contributes to each child’s learning and development outcomes in relation to their identity, connection with community, well being, confidence as learners and effectiveness as communicators.
We value the diversity of families and cultures in our community and aim to create a partnership where family life and learning comes together. We understand the need to compliment the role of families in educating and promoting learning through enjoyable and enriching experiences designed to foster a sense of belonging and achievement. Treetops School of Early Learning is a community of families and together we can support each other and each child’s learning journey. As the saying goes, ‘It takes a village to raise a child’. We aim to actively participate within our local community to enhance children’s learning and well being.
Every day is important when it comes to nurturing a child’s spirit and providing learning opportunities, and we can only live that day once. Let’s make each learning rich day one to be remembered!
