At Raceview Childcare & Kindergarten we meet each individual child’s needs. Engage and interact with children and families within our premises. We create meaningful learning within our environment.
Play allows children to use their creativity while developing their imagination, dexterity, and physical, cognitive, and emotional strength. Play is important to healthy brain development. It is through play that children at a very early age engage and interact in the world around them.
An enriching and stimulating environment promotes a healthy growth and brain development by providing a child with love, emotional support, and opportunities for learning and exploration.
Here at Raceview Kindergarten and Child Care we believe in sustainable practices educating the children about the environment using natural resources in a way that we could keep doing for a long time.
Building on the foundation of the Early Years Learning Framework and Integrating four main childhood theorists, Vugotsky, Malaguzzi, Bronfenbrenner and Piaget.
Vygotsky whereby emphasise is placed on the importance of relationships and interactions between children and more knowledgeable peers as well as adults and their social interactions. These interactions provide a key ingredient for how humans understand the world.This is achieved through scaffolding techniques. The Educator.Malaguzzi whereby educational practise is based on the belief that children are powerful and capable individuals who contain the ability and desire to construct their own knowledge.The Child.Bronfenbrenner whereby he believes that interactions between children and environmental factors affect child’s development, indirectly suggesting that a village raises a child. The Environment.
All theorists combined supporting Piaget whereby Children construct their own learning rather than being told.Children are active thinkers, who constantly try to construct more understandings of their world. This is achieved in our program cycle through, the child, the Environment, the educator.
The combination of your CHILD, the ENVIRONMENT and our EDUCATORS underpin the entirety of the program. Our curriculum is shared daily through a digital app called Storypark where your child/ren’s learning and development is readily accessible for you and other family members to view, engage with educators and contribute towards goal setting.
