Evergreen Early Education Centre is excited to announce that we will be implementing Storypark – a secure, private online space to ensure your child receives the best support possible and that you are involved and up-to-date with your child’s development.
What we do best... a holistic approach to learning
Our Educational Philosophy
‘We recognise that children’s learning is individual and at Evergreen we embrace the Early Years Learning Framework which is the foundation of the Curriculum we provide and deliver to our children.
We believe that Play based learning is very important, the most effective tool, and is central to a child’s learning and development.
We are dedicated to providing an environment that is attuned to the needs and interests of all children and encourage their healthy development in all areas, including physical, emotional, intellectual and social skills which is embedded within the Evergreen Curriculum and Daily Routines.
We will endeavour to provide a service that meets the individual needs and expectations of every Educator, child and their family, whilst ensuring everyone’s equal rights and values are respected.’
Why children flourish in our environment...
The design of our state of the art Centre has had the input of Early Childhood professionals to ensure the daily operations of the Centre runs smoothly. Evergreen rooms are set up with Learning Centres, a place where the children can begin to explore language, music and movement, science and the arts, to help them make sense of their world.
Our Learning Centres are equipped with age appropriate resources to ensure we create a learning environment which will encourage children to interact, take on roles and develop relationships with others through play, whilst encouraging each child to value and respect each other’s difference and embracing everything new.
Throughout the day children will be exposed to small group, whole group and individual learning experiences that have been developed from the needs, strengths and interests of each child. This will be achieved whilst we ensure we provide a safe, secure, happy and well supervised environment.
We support our Early Childhood Educators so they can be the best that they are whilst working in a fun and enjoyable environment. Evergreen is an organisation dedicated to supporting each individual Educator which is an extension to the service that is delivered to our children and families.
Our programs are fun and challenging! The children’s interests drive our program, intern they are never bored. The children are continuously learning valuable life lessons through play and enjoyment!
Evergreen and 'The Early Years Learning Framework'
At Evergreen we acknowledge the importance of play in early childhood development.
When children play they are showing what they have learned and what they are trying to understand. When children play with other children they create social groups, test out ideas, challenge each other’s thinking and build new understandings.
This is why play is one of the foundations of the Early Years Learning Framework as well as the Evergreen Philosophy. By using this Framework Educators will guide children’s play by carefully designing learning activities and stimulating Indoor and Outdoor learning environments. We also acknowledge that each child is unique and therefore will progress at their own pace.
The Framework’s vision is for all children to experience play-based learning that is engaging and builds success for life.
