Friends Early Learning caters for babies from 12 weeks to children enrolled in our 3-4 year old Kindergarten program. Our Centre has four room-based groups which are organised by children’s age and stage of development. Each of these groups has a dedicated educational team, coordinated by a Lead Educator, who work collaboratively to design engaging learning experiences and build supportive relationships with children and families over time. We believe in the importance of the continuity of care and educational experience; to meet this we ensure our staff teams plan together weekly, building on their knowledge of children and the learning process. Our educational teams plan and work responsively as they listen to children’s ideas and interests, extending these and developing important skills and dispositions along the way.
