Our child care professionals are passionate about Early Childhood Education, educators who can skilfully combine their teaching skills and concepts with sensitive and warm, play‐based interactions and conversations.
“By engaging children in deep
conversations about what they are
doing; by asking open‐ended questions
to encourage their thinking; and by
supporting them to reflect on and
evaluate the success or otherwise of
their efforts, we can help children to
begin to think in more sophisticated
and abstract ways.”
Just wanted to thank you guys for the great work you put in with Dennis last year. The development over the 12 months is outstanding & has really prepared him to go into the big room up here.
Just wanted to let you know that Dennis has settled into his new preschool very well including fully toilet trained YAY ?.
There were a few tears at the start of the year from both Dennis & I, has we missed the wonderful staff at ELC. Thankfully am happy to report he is making great friendships with his new teachers & peers, however every now & again he still looks for Miss Brittany.
Hope all is well, Keep up the fabulous work!
Outside play is fantastic, the chookies, the bunny, gardens, mud pies and water activities in summer on those stinking hot days. Encouragement and learning through actually helping with gardens. I know when they are dirty they have had a great day!Jane Clarke
