P1 At Little Angels Early Learning Centre, we strive to provide high quality care to children and families. We do this through having trained and experienced staff to provide a secure and happy environment for the children. We wish to provide opportunity and support to meet the highest expectations of individual childrenâ€™s development and learning.
P2 Our curriculum is based on the Early Years Learning Framework. The framework will build on childrenâ€™s interests, knowledge, experience and background while focussing on individuals within the group. It will encompass all developmental and key learning areas.
P3 We believe play is essential to young children learning. We endeavour to meet the needs of childrenâ€™s natural curiosity by providing opportunities for them to experiment, discover, solve problems and find themselves, other people and the world around them.
P4 We believe in the rights of all children regardless of gender, additional needs, cultural identity, family background and or religious beliefs. We also recognise that learning is most effective in the childâ€™s first language and we promote this within our learning environments.
P5 We believe that children are resourceful learners who are capable of constructing their own knowledge of the world around them. We aim to promote relationships that support children to feel a sense of belonging, see themselves as constructive contributors to the community around them and encourage them to see themselves as valued, unique and powerful. All children will engage in relationships of caring and respect towards each other and to the world around them.
P6 We endeavour to develop partnerships with families that help create links between the children, their home life and the centre. We will provide a welcoming atmosphere through active communication where families will feel encouraged to participate in the daily works of the centre and feel a sense of belonging.
P7 Educators are individuals and come to Little Angels with varying ideas and experiences that add value to the total environment. As educators we are attuned to childrenâ€™s thoughts and feelings to support the development of a strong sense of wellbeing.
P8 Our experienced educators provide an environment that is secure and predictable where children can explore and investigate. Educators encourage support, respect, appreciate and view a positive connection with the natural environment.
