an extraordinary life of unlimited opportunities begins with us
We understand the importance of a child's early years and aim to develop confidence, self-esteem and emotional resilience in all children. We strive to create environments that inspire children to be active participants in their learning.
why choose us?
At Skippy's we endeavour to work in partnership with our families to guide our planning for children's learning. We understand that you know your child better than anyone and with this in mind we acknowledge that there would be no one better to support us with this information than you, our children's families.
Upon enrolment we discuss your child and your families interests, culture and beliefs and ask that you complete an "All About Me" form for us to gain a greater understanding of your child. We use this information to educate children by further extending upon your home environment and your child's likes and dislikes. We do this in conjunction with documented observations of your child.
Our program planning cycle involves talking with you, observing your children, documenting through learning stories, reflecting upon what we have observed and what we have learnt as Educators, evaluating the observations and further planning to extend upon your child's interests and development.
We strive to engage children in active learning, by identifying children's strengths and interests, choose appropriate teaching strategies and design the learning environment. Our educators then assess learning to inform their further planning.
