About Seeds Child Care Centre

playground_5.jpgAt Seeds we believe in the Reggio Emilia approach to Early Childhood and that the social and physical environment the children evolves it represents the “Third Teacher”. This is why we endeavour in providing a nurturing and enriching environment with programs and resources that are developmentally appropriate, intriguing and enable children to learn, grow and live creatively. We also strongly believe that creating relationships with our families and our community is crucial to children’s development.

        Seeds Childcare and Early Learning Centre strives to provide the highest quality childcare and education program in a warm, nurturing and safe environment, while providing opportunities for children to explore their surroundings with a sense of wonder, adventure and curiosity.

        At Seeds we believe in the Reggio Emilia Approach and hence believe that the environment is the Third Teacher. We aim at creating an enriching and nurturing environment that will inspire curiosity, exploration and learning. By providing a natural outdoor environment with real grass, plants, tress and wooden play apparatus and bringing nature into the centre children can explore through the senses and connect to nature both indoors and outdoors. Our facilities at Seeds have been designed or adapted to ensure interaction between indoor and outdoor spaces. By caring for animals we believe that children learn empathy, respect and to care for others. It teaches them a sense of responsibility, community involvement, social responsibility and respect for the environment. It also develops confidence, curiosity, enthusiasm and problem solving, all excellent skills throughout early years and life.

        We believe that working in partnership with families is essential to providing the highest quality care and education for your child.
        Acknowledging that each child is different and learning occurs in different shapes and forms. Each child’s current knowledge, ideas, culture, abilities and interest are the foundation of the program. The diversity in family life means that children experience ‘belonging, being and becoming’ in many different ways. Children bring their diverse experiences, perspectives expectations, knowledge and skills to their learning. It is important we guide children in recognising and respecting similarities and differences in the cultures that are the fabric of our community. At Seeds, we believe that the recognition and integration of cultural diversity into our daily program will ultimately lead to the development of strong, caring and tolerant individuals who are capable of making a valuable contribution to society.  We aim to impart life skills consistent with each child’s individual development and to extend their range of personal skills.

        The educators at Seeds believe that each child is a unique individual and no matter where we come from and how different we look, our children are all children and we will treat them with care, respect their rights and provide equal opportunities to all the children in our care.
