OUR STAFF

Our highly committed team ranges from hands-on management personnel who are actively involved in the day to day running of the services as well as qualified educators who have extensive knowledge and experience in educating and nurturing children in their early learning years.
Our staff is trained in First Aid, CPR and go through the Department of Early Learning Background Checks.

Little Explorers Learning Centre, through its staff, is committed to the needs and concerns of every parent/guardian. We believe that building relationships with your child’s teacher is one of the very best ways for you to stay connected to your child and what he or she is learning.

We value parental/guardian support and encourage open lines of communication between the classroom and home. The classroom has an open-door policy that provides an opportunity for parents/guardians to observe and participate with their children in their environments. Our teachers and centre staff are committed to developing strong partnerships with families, especially in those first few months when everyone is getting used to a new routine and new friends.

More communication is better. No question is too small, so don’t hesitate to bring it up! Our teachers and centre staff are here to help families navigate a variety of issues, including behavioural concerns, transition difficulties, and social and emotional changes. And because of our beliefs and policies; we believe that teachers, parents/guardians, and children working together are a winning combination.

Our educators are considered and hired based on the following criteria:

  • Early childhood Education and Experience
  • Classroom Working Interviews
  • Sound personality match with staff and children
  • Recommendations from previous supervisors
  • Our current staff evaluations

INFANT CARE

(Under 2 Years)

Young children need lots of love and extra special care and our Infant Care program provide just that for under 2-year-olds. Each dedicated infant room is a comfortable place filled with nurturing surroundings and loving care. Our program offers each child one-on-one and group activities, gentle play and safe exploration. It is stimulating to the development of young minds without being overwhelming.

Each infant's needs are different, so we have flexible routines for babies under 12 months. There are areas for sleep, relaxing and personal space and the opportunity for outdoor experiences in the fresh air. Moreover, you don’t miss out on all those little things that happen each day, your child has their own personal learning journal that captures their journey as it unfolds.

Teachers in our infant classrooms are committed to creating a safe and nurturing atmosphere where babies can explore and interact with their environment and peers in the classroom. Teachers will encourage and assist the children on Physical Development, Language/Literacy, Cognitive and General Knowledge, Approaches to Learning, Social/Emotional Development and Creative Arts using healthy interactions with other infants and adults.

TODDLER CARE

(2-3 YEARS)

For a toddler, the world is a magical place, full of constant learning and exploration. When caring for toddlers we help facilitate that adventure along with positive emotional guidance helping them to understand the boundaries of their independence.

We help provide structure to little lives through a consistent routine, which includes free play, structured play, group times for music and language, and outdoor experiences. Our encouraging and nurturing staff are sensitive to the individual needs of each toddler’s social and emotional development. In addition, each child has their own personal learning journal, which helps you follow them on their exciting journey of self-discovery.

Teachers in our toddler classrooms focus on self-soothing and self-regulation techniques, promoting independence, motor-skill development and coordination. Curiosity and imagination are where the learning begins. The teacher will assess the children daily in the areas of Physical Development, Language/Literacy, Social/Emotional Development and Creative Arts.

PRESCHOOL CARE

(3-5 YEARS)

As 3-year-olds start coming into their own, it’s important they have time and space to explore their independence in a safe and supportive environment. We help develop autonomy and an openness to learning.
 
TRANSITION TO SCHOOL PROGRAM
We are aware that when a child first attends school, it involves a great deal of change for them and their family. To help ease this transition, our educators will always discuss starting school in a positive manner that reinforces a healthy attitude toward the transition and provide opportunities for discussion and reassurance.
Our curriculum incorporates school readiness experiences such as lunch box days, school uniform show & tell, and taking part in progressive independence necessary for big school. This is done over the course of their time in our preschool room, allowing children to grow, learn and develop in their own way with assistance. We don’t believe in a crash course in school readiness. We believe in adopting practices that are incorporated into every day that strengthen children’s readiness for school. 

TRANSITION TO SCHOOL INFORMATION SESSIONS

Transitioning to school is such an important time and is one of the biggest milestones for children and families. Forming strong relationships between early childhood settings and schools before children start kindergarten assists in ensuring a smooth transition. This also allows for information sharing between families and primary school settings prior to commencement. As part of our Transition to School Program, our services host school readiness information sessions for families in the month of June and again in September. The information session not only provides parents with information for a smooth transition but also information needed in the decision-making process in sending your child to kindergarten. We will also provide information on how you can support at home, your child/rens readiness for school in conjunction with what they are learning at Little Explorers.

"NSW TRANSITION TO SCHOOL STATEMENT”

The NSW transition to school statement is prepared by educators with input from children and families. The NSW Transition to School Statement is given to your child’s teacher the following year. It consists of important information to help your child have a successful start to school.

GRADUATION

Our services hold this very special event for our school leavers at the end of the year. Our Graduation celebration marks this special time in our children’s lives as we all come together to celebrate the end of an amazing year we have had.
