More On Education

At Cottesloe Child Care Centre we believe that high quality care and early education can make a significant difference in a child’s development.  Our Centre reflects best practice in early childhood education and has been formally recognised for exceeding the National Quality Standards in Educational Program and Practise.

We employ a full time early childhood teacher who is the facilitator of our kindergarten program and is the Centre’s educational leader – overseeing all of our educational programs and supporting our qualified educators in program delivery.

Elements of our holistic pedagogical approach include:

  • Play – children need to be actively engaged  through hands-on, exploration and investigation

  • Partnership – we recognise the connections between children, families and communities and the importance of reciprocal relationships and partnerships for learning

  • Teaching – our intentional teaching assists cognitive development (literacy, numeracy) and further equips children with valuable life skills (social, emotional, communication, physical) as they develop 

  • Reflection – educators gather information and gain insights that support, inform and enrich decision making about children’s learning

  • Professional practise – educator’s examine what happens in their setting
