CHILDREN ARE EVERYTHING TO US
We appreciate and acknowledge each families diverse culture’.
• At Little Gems, families are our key partners and our essential goal is to provide support to families to identify each child’s learning and development.
• We embrace and acknowledge different cultures in the centre and implement spontaneous and planned experiences to recognise different cultures. We encourage parent input to explore opportunities with families and to integrate language, dancing and cultural traditions in our centre. This is offered through the program to ensure all children interact and engage with these materials to enhance their understanding about diversity in society and in the centre.
• At Little Gems Child Care we recognise each family’s individual circumstances and based on your income, you may be entitled to funding from the government for your child at centre.
Now, let’s get to know us …..‘All children are treated like Gems’.
At Little Gems Child Care we understand the importance and necessity of providing a nurturing and stimulating environment. Well, this why Little Gems Child Care, is the perfect place for your child to attend. We grant what is important when looking for a supportive environment for your child. This includes a welcoming environment, with warm and friendly staff, high-quality furniture and resources, and of course an educational program that meets to each child’s needs and strengths.
We understand that it is a difficult time, selecting a perfect Child Care for you and your child. However, the enrolment process is easy and we are here to guide you with every step of the way! Our main goal is to ensure that once you leave the premises you are content that your child is safe and happy, with your mind at ease.
The perfect blend towards quality care and education is creating a home environment for the children, and providing outstanding experiences, where children are challenged to their full potential, enhancing their development as they grow.
As we all know children grow rapidly. Each day is a stepping is stone, in which they grow to the top of the ladder and exceed themselves. As a result, we engage children in educational activities that nourish their thirst for knowledge.
Children’s needs are at the heart of the centre, and are implemented in everything that we do, to create the perfect learning environment for you and your child.
On a final note, primarily it is our objective to inspire and influence families to feel welcomed into the centre. The love of learning is important to educators, and we wish to embed this learning into the children, to increase their motivation towards learning helping them to be lifelong learners.
Early learning… Give your child the best possible start
Early learning offers enormous potential benefit to your child.
Play-based learning is one of the foundations of early learning Little Gems has implemented at its centres around Australia. Play-based learning fully engages children in activities where they can show what they’ve learned and are trying to understand.
At little gems, children enjoy a wide variety of activities within a flexible daily routine to ensure that every part of their day is not just fun, but acts as a ‘teachable moment in time’.
Given the chance to love learning, children also embrace literacy and numeracy – so vital to reaching their full potential.
Young brains are works in progress
Neuroscience shows that early experiences impact upon brain development more than genetics. In other words, nurture trumps nature. Young brain development is dependent on a positive environment – good nutrition, health, and nourishing and stimulating parenting
We’re all passionate about early learning. Everything we do is for the benefit of the children in our care, because children are at the centre of everything we do. Our qualified staff know that the best early learning happens in environments where children feel safe, loved and protected. This requires a place where children are nurtured and their minds stimulated. All staff are qualified and hold senior first aid training with ongoing training.
