At Scribbles and Giggles Childcare Centres we understand that children are unique individuals and our educational program caters to each child’s individual needs. We acknowledge the diverse traditional values held by families in our communities and within our centres therefore we understand the importance of creating a warm and inviting environment.
Guided by Early Years Learning Framework, both children and parents’ feedbacks, current events and children’s interests our educational program is a collaboration of many learning areas with the goal of providing opportunities for children to achieve all learning outcomes and relevant developmental milestones.
Our staff are qualified and continue to grow in their roles through professional development and mentorship programs offered by Scribbles and Giggles leadership team. Located in culturally rich and mature communities we understand the importance of staff continuity and creating an inviting environment to cater to our returning families and all the siblings in their learning journey.
Our team believes in building strong relationship with children and strive to provide them with consistent emotional support necessary in this skill development phase and to teach them the importance of positive interaction with others. We value our rich surrounding community, the knowledge shared by community members, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Elders; and strive to learn while educating the children of our community.
Our staff believe in collaborative learning and believe that learning outcomes are best achieved through partnership. We are committed to build a strong and genuine relationship with families which leads to better exploration of learning potentials in everyday events. Our Inclusion Support Department plays a large role in suggesting and implementing strategies to cater to children with additional needs, providing them with opportunities to learn from active engagement in every experience.
At Scribbles & Giggles we have a holistic approach to teaching and learning: We pay attention to children’s physical, personal, social, emotional and spiritual wellbeing while focusing on their cognitive skills. While focusing on delivering the required learning outcomes we understand that children learn in an interconnected manner therefore we have created sub programs about Indigenous and cultural perspectives, sustainability, leading a healthy lifestyle, connecting with nature and respecting the environment. These additional programs allow our educators to incorporate all aspects of learning into our daily program based on children’s interests and through our centre and community events.
At Scribbles and Giggles we consistently review our programs and implement new ideas based on past experiences and outcomes to establish a lively culture of professional inquiry and continually grow our team’s professional knowledge.
At Scribbles and Giggles our Philosophy, Vision and Mission is consistent across all locations but every family’s experience with us is one of a kind. We take initiatives to customize each centre’s service philosophy to the unique culture and needs of the surrounding community.
