About The Village Preschool & Long Day Care
We believe every moment matters. At Timbertown Early Learning Centre our aim is to provide professional, quality care and education for your children, in a warm, natural, safe and relaxed environment for all children, carers and staff.
Our Centre's Philosophy
Timbertown Early Learning Centre is an inclusive environment; we strive to act in the best interests of all children and their families at all times.
Our staff aim to create and maintain safe and healthy spaces and places to enhance children’s learning and development and to encourage initiative, dignity self-respect in a trusting and caring environment.
Each child will be recognised as a unique individual and acknowledged as a competent learner, regardless of their gender, age, ability, family structure, lifestyle, religion, language, culture and national origin.
Children will be encouraged to feel safe in their environment and to learn and explore through a play based program which incorporates the Early Years Learning Framework and learning about and caring for our environment, natural and living things, relationships with others and communication skills.
Staff will acknowledge families values and strengths and promote positive relationships, respect their input and maintain confidentiality at all times.
Staff members will collaborate and continually reflect on their practices to promote positive thinking and a stimulating educational environment for the children in their care.
Timbertown Early Learning Centre will act as an advocate for children in relation to childcare issues and will work in partnerships with outside resources to meet any needs of the children.
