Our Philosophy

At Avonsleigh Preschool all children and their families are valued for their individuality and uniqueness. We recognise that every child’s family and community are different and diverse. Open communication and working in close conjunction with all families, allows the educators to enhance the learning of children whilst maintaining high levels of respect for their diversity.

The learning that takes place at Avonsleigh Preschool is achieved through play. By providing a safe, secure setting, educators encourage children to openly explore the learning environment and to undertake the challenges presented to them within the program.

Programs are designed in consultation with children and families. Educators are then able to discover areas of interest for each child as well as establish strategies of how to best engage each child in the program, this is then married with intentional teaching.  By doing this the educators are able fully immerse the children in learning experiences,  encourage and support children to create their own learning opportunities with the aim of working towards  goals established for each individual child as well as the group.

Our programs offer a balance between:

  • Large and small group activities,
  • Individual and Collective learning opportunities
  • Bold and Intimate play spaces,
  • Structured and unstructured experiences,
  • Child initiated and adult led discoveries
  • Active and passive play,
  • Predictability and Flexibility
  • And Indoor and outdoor experiences

We offer experiences that encourage the development of investigation, exploration, imagination and experimentation. Learning opportunities are created and developed to promote the children’s ability to think laterally and creatively. Our Educators believe in all children’s capacities to succeed. They actively support and encourage children to set and achieve their own relevant goals.

Tree climbing, mud play and exploring the sandpit with bare feet are elements of play that are highly valued at Avonsleigh Preschool, along with aesthetically inspired play scapes, exploratory and creative art experiences and incursions and excursions.

The learning program at Avonsleigh preschool are designed to clearly reflect, both the Victorian Early Years learning and Development Framework as well as the National Early Years Framework, otherwise known as Belonging, Being and Becoming. Educators believe in taking an elective approach to the philosophies of child development theorists. Eg Jean Piaget and BF Skinner.

Early Childhood Australia’s, Code of Ethics is another working document that can be observed in the educators practice and the centre’s policies.

Healthy eating, Sun Smart practices and oral health are all actively promoted within the preschool setting.

Avonsleigh educators engage in, ongoing critical reflection. This results in the formulation of progressive quality improvement plans which ensures the services; practices, procedures and policies are always undergoing constant evaluation, relevant changes leading to improved outcomes for children and their families.
