It is our belief that all children bring their perspectives, expectations, knowledge and skills to their learning experience. At Sanctuary Early Learning Adventure we understand that children learn in different ways and support the learning development of each and every child.
We are committed to playing a part in protecting the planet and caring for the environment for the sake of future generations. Through our Green Team our children and families are encouraged to take the journey with us as we embrace reducing our carbon footprint, understanding and caring for the natural environment, learning waste management and energy efficiency practices and other sustainable initiatives.
We see children as capable and competent learners and believe that independence is important for children of all ages. Through involving the children in the holistic process of how their food arrives on their plate as well as understanding the paddock to plate method, children appreciate and are more open to trying new foods because they understand the process and are involved in the preparation. Through cooking with our hands on chef and our teaching team, your child will explore with their senses, learn basic math and science concepts, practice turn-taking and most importantly have fun!
Through relationships and community engagement, children have the opportunity to grow emotionally, intellectually and physically. We believe community involvement produces long-term benefits to children’s lives and gives them a sense of belonging-it’s critical to building a strong sense of identity. The community visits us and we visit the community.
Our children will have the opportunity to engage with the community in a multitude of ways from visiting the local cafe for a babychino, connecting with the local aged care home, learning from indigenous elders, swimming lessons, library visits, hairdressers, the local supermarket and more! Excursions and incursions are strong ways to connect children with their world around them.
