We at Joyful Learning ELC value early childhood education as the foundation for lifelong learning. We believe that each child is a unique individual. The welfare and wellbeing of each child are paramount. We strive to provide a safe, secure, nurturing, loving and home-like environment, where children can be happy, healthy and relaxed, can develop across all developmental domains and can reach their fullest potential.
We believe that children learn through play and exploration and it is vital for the children to be connected with the community. We believe that a powerful Interaction (between educators and children) creates the optimal condition for extending their learning. Our educators nurture a positive relationship with children. We embrace the Early Years Learning Framework that guides our focus and ensures we look at each child as a whole. We aim to provide an interest-based, inclusive, quality and flexible program with full of natural resources, which stimulates wonder, encourage creativity and exploration. We encourage children to be confident and involved learners and support them to develop all their senses through “hands-on” playing with a variety of open-ended activities, participating in special musical, healthy and sustainability programs. We promote a strong sense of wellbeing amongst the children and encourage children to respect their own and other children’s rights and property.
We promote friendly, supportive relationships among children, staff and parents. We believe that families are children’s first and most influential teachers. Children and their families are the core of our wider community, which we bring together as we encourage them to share their culture, language and home experiences with us based on honest, open communication and mutual respect. Families are welcomed and encouraged to participate in the program and share in decision making, with not only their children but the overall ways in which the centre operates.
Educators at our centre are dedicated professionals and have obtained formal qualifications in the field of early childhood. The centre encourages and supports our educators consistently developing and refining their professional practices, attending additional training to develop the best possible environment for children.
