Positive self-esteem, high self-worth and a strong sense of identity can help a child to build lifelong emotional intelligence that will give them the ability to cope with life’s challenges and be active and productive in their communities. Every child will achieve milestones in their learning and development in their own time. Therefore, it is important to cater to each child individually.
We acknowledge and respect the many different social and cultural backgrounds of children in our care and value the experiences they bring from the home environment. At Advanced Early Learning we understand that it is essential to maintain continuity between the home, the community and our centre, giving children a genuine sense of belonging.
We strive to help your child develop positive self-esteem, self-concepts, a sense of identity, independence and an ability to use initiative. We create a learning environment in which each child can develop at their own pace through individualised programs. We foster growth and positive attitudes and teach values to assist in decision making.
We work in partnership with families and the community to foster a sense of belonging in our centre. Our inclusive approach helps to develop positive gender, racial, cultural, class and individual identities, showing respect for diversity. We provide a caring, safe environment in which all children can feel secure.
We help children to develop their interests and explore their world by nurturing their natural curiosity. We listen to and value what children say, and support and enhance each child’s growth, development and learning by providing stimulating environments and individualised programs.
We work in partnership with parents, inviting and welcoming families to be involved in our programming by working collaboratively with staff.
We respect that our educators possess the strengths, talents, experience, skills and interests to positively contribute to our programs.
We develop a trusting relationship with each child and their family.
Responsive learning relationships are strengthened as educators and children learn together and share decisions, respect and trust.
We value and build on children’s strengths, skills and knowledge to ensure they remain motivated and engaged in learning.
At Advanced Early Learning, we implement Belonging, Being and Becoming – The Early Years Learning Framework for Australia. Through this framework, we build on children’s interests, knowledge, experience and background as individuals within the group.
We ensure routines are flexible so that children have time to learn and play, make choices and be co-constructors of their learning.
We create opportunities for children to engage in a variety of experiences that encompass all developmental and key learning areas.
We establish effective practices for evaluation and planning, identifying each child’s needs and interests.
We acknowledge that children are capable and resourceful and are active contributors in their learning process.
We recognise that each child is unique and we value each child’s sense of self and individuality.
We encourage children to think, feel, ask and explore through positive and authentic interactions.
We provide welcoming indoor and outdoor learning environments and opportunities for learning that enrich, stimulate, support and cater to every child.
Our educators are responsive to all children’s strengths, abilities and interests.
Play is a process that enables children to learn through concrete “hands-on” experiences such as doing, experimenting, predicting, achieving and making mistakes. As children play to learn, they bring their own unique talents to the education process.
Children have the right to equality and respect. Respecting there abilities, feelings, culture and property of others is a mutual practice that assists in the development of compassion, which is a necessary social skill for life.
