Through our child-initiated and play-based program, the Educators at Hobbit aim to encourage the developmental potential of each child in their care. The daily program includes opportunities for language, music, indoor and outdoor activities, and supports the physical needs of the child with regular routines for bathroom breaks, lunch, morning and afternoon tea.
Educators’ practices and the relationships they form with children and families have a significant effect on children’s involvement and success in learning. Children thrive when families and educators work together in partnership to support young children’s learning.
Wellbeing and a strong sense of connection, optimism, and engagement enable children to develop a positive attitude to learning.
We will create a range of short and long-term goals for your child which will be based on the outcomes in the Early Years Learning Framework and include:
- Mutual respect and empathy
- Concern and responsibility for self and others
- A sense of self-worth
- Social awareness
- Importance of sustainability
- Habits of initiative and persistence
- Creative intelligence and imagination
- Self-confidence as an independent learner
- A love of learning
We strongly encourage communication between families and educators to ensure continuity in what we are delivering to your child, and acknowledge that the role of the Educator is to work in partnership with families; children’s first and most influential educators.
