Our commitment to children at St Nicholas Early Education
The St Nicholas Early Education philosophy underpins what we do each and every single day in our early education centres. It explains the how and why of what our educators are aiming for in their program. An important part of our philosophy is our commitment to the children in our care.
The curriculum offered at St Nicholas Early Education is built on the Early Years Learning Framework. The Framework looks at a child being, belonging and becoming in our early education setting.
When we look at children being in our environment we look at how St Nicholas Early Education builds resilience for children in a group setting. This encapsulates relationships with our educators and the environments we are creating for children in our care.
When we look at children becoming in our environment we’re talking about how we extend their learning. We look at the educational program we implement and how we extend children’s interest in that program.
In terms of a child belonging in our early education environment, this is an essential part of children belonging within a community. Developing a sense of belonging in a community means we are taking children in our care out into the local community and bringing the community into each St Nicholas Early Education centre.
We develop this sense of belonging by embarking on excursions into the surrounding areas throughout the year. We also welcome members of the community into our services to talk to the children about things like fire safety, oral hygiene and more.
