Our Educators

Setting children on a path of success

Our purpose at Little Diggers Preschool is to serve others, namely: children attending our child care center, their parents, and our co-workers. We also propose to promote the intellectual, physical, mental, social and emotional development of each child in our care, focused around respect, inclusion and acceptance

We consider ourselves partners with parents and families in the rearing of children and we believe that this partnership encourages the highest level of growth and development for children.

 
Developmental progress

Our qualified and experienced educators are well-situated to observe and assess students for developmental progress as well as for potential challenges. Should such challenges appear families can expect that staff will present themselves as willing support ‘team members' to their child’s benefit. We pride ourselves on providing an accepting and inclusive environment for children of all abilities and have long maintained close working relationships with the community agencies which support children and their families.

Suitable qualified Educators are employed in all age groups and the child Educators ratios are adhered to according to our legal requirements. All Educators will have their Senior First Aid Certificates, Working with Children Checks completed and attend monthly Educators meetings. Our Educators are regularly involved and encouraged to attend further development and training.

We aim for our Service to be unique in that all our Educators will have had training and experience in the child care profession. For further details on the qualifications of the Educators, please see our Nominated Supervisor.

Please feel free at any time in person, by phone or email to discuss your child's progress, relationship, interest and experiences.

What can you expect from Educators?

■ Educators will make efforts to communicate effectively with families.

■ Educators will inform families promptly and sensitively of any out of the ordinary incidents affecting their child.

■ Educators will share with children's families some of the specific interactions they had with the children during the day.

■ Information on children's eating and sleeping patterns at the Service will be provided to families through verbal communication and through the room sign in sheet.

■ When families and Educators make a joint decision that affect children's progress, interest and experience, a record will be kept in the appropriate form. (These may include new events like toilet training.)

■ Focused around respect, inclusion and acceptance, safety, health and well-being.

A friendship is formed....Visiting our Grandfriends in the care homes

As a part of our weekly programme, we just love visiting the residents in the care homes, affectionately known as the 'Grandfriends'. It is so heart warming to see friendships form between the residents and the children at Little Diggers. We hope this may resume. later this year, we still see them and wave through the windows and doors.   ►   details...

What other's say

I just wanted to send you a quick email to say we miss our Little Diggers family a lot! We hope you’re all well, we continue to keep track of all the wonderful activities via social media.

I wanted to give you a little update on Miss Bronte...

As you would well know, Bronte at times can be quite shy and reserved and at drop off time could be a little sad, but she was well prepared for her transition to school thanks to all of your efforts (& probably her big sister Char too).

We had a bit of a rocky start to school with tears and not being able to find friends/making new friends was a bit tricky and the school playground was just so BIG!!!

But can I tell you, we are now at the end of term 3 and wow has she come a long way.

Bronte last week did a speech (with palm cards) to all of her classmates and was shortlisted to the finals this week (this is the same little girl who a year ago hid behind me at the Little Diggers gate). And two week ago she was voted by her peers as SRC representative for her class.

She is also excelling in her reading, writing and maths.

She has a truly wonderful teacher, but I can’t help but share this news with you all as you laid the solid foundation for her to grow and I wanted you to hear and see the fruits of your loving labour.

So thank you all,

Kylie
