Meet Our Educators
At Ally’s Kindy, all our educators and support staff hold equal importance in making sure our centre offers outstanding care for your child. This builds a strong team both within the rooms, and in the wider centre. Our educators know all the children in the Centre, not just the children in their respective rooms.
Our Lead Educators not only have solid knowledge of the Childcare legislation and centre policies and procedures. They hold extensive experience which means they can apply this knowledge in a practical way. Our understanding and actions within and around the centre are the foundation for our staff’s family focussed environment.
We believe that children learn through play and that it is the experience a child has while engaging in play that is the most important factor in promoting development. In each program you will find that there is a predictable routine to the day which provides the children with a sense of security. You will also find that certain materials are always available for children to choose i.e. paints, blocks, books and equipment for imaginative play.
Coupled with our learning materials, we implement teaching experiences planned to challenge and stimulate your child in becoming an effective learner. Although what is offered in equipment is the same or very similar across groups, what the children do with it is changing as they develop and acquire new knowledge and skills
At Ally’s Kindy, we are committed to providing individual developmental programs which highlight the care, education, interest and health of young children. Our program incorporates the Queensland Kindergarten Learning Guidelines (2010), emergent curriculum, interest based programming style and Belonging, Being and Becoming: The Early Years Learning Framework (2009).
