Welcome to teddy bear!
At Teddy Bear Early Learning Centre, we believe that the early years of a child’s life are their most influential. It is within these years that a child develops the foundation skills and abilities that will carry them through life.
We feel children have a right to be active participants in their own learning and must be empowered to express their views and ideas. Therefore, we provide our children with a safe, welcoming, nurturing and positive environment to confidently learn and grow.
Teddy Bear Early Learning Centre is guided by the Early Years Learning Framework pedagogy, focusing on the principles of ‘Being, Belonging and Becoming’ and the National Quality Framework. We believe that a meaningful, integrated, emergent curriculum using EYLF as the Framework is the most beneficial to children’s learning across all developmental domains.
Our Staffs and Values
Our staff use intentional teaching in our program as they recognise that learning occurs in social contexts and that interactions and conversations are vitally important for learning.
Our staff are dedicated professionals who respond to all children’s strengths, abilities and interests.
They value and build on children’s strengths, skills and knowledge to ensure their motivation and engagement in learning. We aim to create an environment of trust and respect, where we work towards achieving a shared goal.
We believe that working in partnerships with families is central to ensuring continuity and progression in a child’s learning, development and future success. We aim to ensure we develop positive, mutually respectful relationships with each family member and involve parents and families into all aspects of the programs development and implementation.
Our service provides nutritious meals that are carefully prepared fresh and daily by our experienced on-site chef. Our menus are carefully designed and planned to be varied, balanced and reflective of cultural diversity. All menus meet the dietary nutrition guidelines for long day care services.
