Educators In any early childhood setting, team work and effective communication are essential requirements for positive outcomes across all aspects of the Services’ functioning, for ‘together everyone achieves more”. Educators are responsive to all children’s strengths, abilities and interests.
We will value and build on children’s strengths, skills and knowledge to ensure their motivation and engagement in learning (EYLF).
We aim to create an environment of trust and respect, where we work towards achieving a shared goal. Ongoing education and training is a critical aspect of staff’s professional development. It is through accurate evaluation and assessment, which occurs when we critically reflect on our actions, that we are able to identify areas which may be considered a skill and those which may need further development.
We recognise Educators/Staff as our Service’s most precious resource and aim to provide them with a satisfying and safe working environment. Further we also appreciate the experience and skills of all Educators/Staff.
We appreciate their dedication as an integral element of the success of our Service.
Good nutrition is essential to healthy living and enables children to be active participants in play and leisure. Our education and care setting provides many opportunities for children to experience a range of healthy foods and to learn about food choices from educators and other children (Early Years Learning Framework, page 30; Framework for School Age Care, page 30).
We provide a menu that is guided by the dietary guidelines for children and adolescents in Australia, and Australian Government Healthy Eating guide lines, our menus are nutritious and adequate in quantity and take into account dietary requirements appropriate to each child's growth and development needs and any specific cultural or health requirements.
