In early childhood, and throughout life, relationships are crucial to a sense of belonging. Our Educators in the Puggles room pride themselves on the low child to primary educator ratios of 1:3. We believe that these low ratios will help children develop a sense of belonging and build on their relationships with the familiar faces.
In the Plateena’s room the children naturally gravitate towards helping out with everyday routines and enjoy the responsibility of collecting eggs from the chicken coop, collecting the mail from the mailbox, and picking the vegetables from the garden beds to give to the cook.
The Joeys children show growing independence. Together we learn from each other that there must be a partnership between the child and the Educator where not only the child learns from us, but we listen to the children’s thinking and learn from them too.
