Delacombe Community Kindergarten
We celebrate children’s individuality, culture and abilities ensuring each child feels valued and has a sense of belonging. Children are provided choice, time, space and challenges to support them in reaching their full potential. This is achieved by the educators who are committed to fostering self-esteem and wellbeing, whilst scaffolding individual needs and development to create the foundation of life learning. Providing inclusive indoor and outdoor educational environment that inspire and value play based learning; offering a nurturing, creative, respectful and enjoyable space which allows children to explore and extend on their interests. We acknowledge our environment as a third teacher, providing opportunities for appreciation and respect of sustainable practices, fauna and flora.
Our environment and teaching practices are influenced by a variety of theorists, such as Malaguzzi, Montessori, Vygotsky, Gardener, Piaget and Bronfenbrenner. These theorists guide a positive environment that promotes scaffolding, educating, inclusion, exploration, wonder, development of milestones and engaging with nature and the natural world.
We recognise and value the input our various stakeholders have in our kindergarten: Therefore the integrated relationships we develop not only support our families but extend to the wider community; such as our Local Schools, Therapists, ECKA, The Education Department, Charities and Other Community Organisations.
