At Murgon Child Care & Learning Centre our role is to listen with empathy and respond with understanding to the children, their families and each other. Children are encouraged to become aware of their actions and the impact they have on others. Children are provided with opportunities to participate in enriching and challenging experiences, based on having fun and learning through play.
Learning is promoted through children’s interests while catering to individual needs by creating a fun atmosphere, this makes learning easy. Following the principles of the Reggio Emilia approach, we encourage children to interact and discover the natural beauty of their surroundings.
Children are inspired to express themselves through their creativity such as art and music. We value children’s independence and encourage them to make choices and develop their self-help skills, as we believe this is a fundamental step in the learning ladder. Educators are guided by the Early Years Learning Framework and believe that working with each child’s family, as the child’s first and most influential educators, is the key for the best start in life.
