Our Philosophy

At 3 Bees ELC we passionately believe that each child is capable to become confident, involved and successful learner and that their potential is unlimited. Our ability to work as a team with a shared vision which prioritise nurturing, trusting relationships, consistent emotional support and positive interactions is the foundation for each child's wellbeing and educational success.

 

We are committed to providing a happy, secure and stimulating environment in which our children will experience expert care and education appropriate to their age and stage of learning.

Autonomy, Agency, Independence, Initiative, Investigation, Discovery, Cooperation, Leadership, Children's rights and Good Self -image are all encouraged through secure attachments, positive partnerships and cooperative relationships with our qualified and experienced educators, children, children's first and most influential teachers, their families and our local and wider community.  Our flexible and effective routines and transitions support and respect children's individual needs and rearing practices.

 

At 3 Bees ELC, we implement an innovative and inclusive curriculum that acknowledges diversity and the community and is based on children's emerging interests, ideas, strengths and abilities. Our curriculum includes interactions, experiences, activities, routines and events, planned and unplanned and there is a combination of creative free play-child led and initiated, intentional teaching and social interactions.

Both indoor and outdoor learning environments are planned carefully to encourage exploration, problem solving, and decision making through a variety of experiences for both individual children and groups of children to further enhance skills development in language, cognitive, social, emotional, physical areas.

 

We believe that play is the engine that drives true learning and a context that:

  • entitles children to express their personality and uniqueness
  • enhances dispositions such as curiosity and creativity
  • enables children to make connections between prior and new learning
  • assist children to develop relationships and concepts
  • stimulates a sense of Wellbeing and Resilience

 

Our Program promotes equality, social justice and inclusion valuing diversity and respecting all cultures and beliefs and encourages non-sexist, non-racist and non-violent attitudes.

 

At 3 Bees ELC, we always ensure that our practices and procedures are in accordance with Education and Care Services National Law and Regulations, NQS, ECA code of ethics, EYLF.

Parent and extended family involvement, input and suggestions in the children's curriculum and in the centre’s activities are actively encouraged.

Healthy choices in relation to nutrition and active life styles are also promoted.
