Waverley Meadows Pre School’s child-centred pedagogy is inspired by Reggio Emilia approach to early learning. We believe in providing the best possible outcomes for the children and families within our centre.
Children are strong powerful contributors to their own learning. They learn best with ‘hands on’ active learning, and through collaboration and communication with peers, adults and their environment. We create an environment that supports a sense of wonder, experimentation, thinking and socialisation, is connected with nature and culture, and is aesthetically pleasing.
Our programs are based on the Victorian Early Years Learning and Development Framework and its guiding principles, practices, and outcomes. Educators develop and design programs based on input from children, families and educators’ own professional knowledge.
Our programs give children opportunities to practice and consolidate their skills in key learning areas including: language and literacy; creative and expressive arts; mathematics; science; and social and emotional development. We are flexible, respond to the evolving nature of early childhood education, and provide for different learning styles.
