Poka Dot Kids Early Learning Centre believe in providing the highest level of care and education for children in a warm, nurturing and safe environment. By creating a feeling of acceptance and sense of belonging, we provide an environment which enables each child to feel safe and secure.
Each Centre provides educationally appropriate and stimulating programs to assist in the development of the whole child, their physical, social, emotional, cognitive, creative and moral growth.
Indoor and Outdoor experiences are provided in small and large group situations. These experiences cater for each child’s individual development and reflect current interests of the group or an individual child.
We recognize the value of play on development. Research has found that children attain higher levels of achievement through engaging in play.
We believe that each child, family and educator is a unique and valued individual.
We value and honour diversity and accept and celebrate differences in other people.
We believe each person and their family’s values, culture, beliefs, abilities and language should be acknowledged and accepted and reflected in the preschool’s environment.
Our philosophy reflects the full appreciation of Australia’s multicultural society, enhancing the children’s awareness of, and respect for, cultural differences and similarities.
Our programs are designed to help children in developing all areas for success now and in later years and to equip them with the necessary tools to deal with life.
Poka Dot Kids endeavour to create a “family-like” atmosphere and recognise the importance of creating a link between home and the Centre, where both parents and educators work in partnership to develop the child as a whole in a mutually supportive and caring environment. Children and parents are welcomed into the Centre regardless of culture, religious and family beliefs and our educators are sensitive to and respectful of these practices.
