At the Ballarat Fidelity Club Kindergarten and the Ballarat Fidelity Club Early Learning Centre, we acknowledge that all children are unique.
The Kindergarten and the Early Learning Centre are designed and created as age specific areas (pre-kindergarten and kindergarten aged children).
Our environment reflects our values, offering all children the opportunities to learn, explore, manipulate, make choices, cooperate, collaborate, investigate, negotiate, and create meaning and to extend on their current knowledge and abilities. Every child is valued as a capable individual and as a contributing member of our Kindergarten community.
We intentionally follow the interests and needs of the children, whilst focussing on strong relationships with the children and families to ensure that all participants have a keen sense of belonging to our early childhood community.
We value the links between home, kindergarten and the wider community, and work in partnership with each of these groups to provide an environment that is nurturing, safe, stimulating and aesthetically rich. Some of the community groups we work with include a variety of local primary schools, “Food is Free Ballarat”, and we are part of an intergenerational relationship program with a local aged-care facility.
We are continually working on improving our outdoor learning spaces to provide opportunities for the children to become socially responsible and show respect and care for the environment.
Our enthusiastic team of Early Childhood Educators consistently interact with each individual child in a warm and responsive manner. We highly value the importance of establishing and maintaining warm, reciprocal relationships of respect. We have meaningful connections with all children to enhance the attainment of skills for life and learning.
” I have been lucky enough to have two of my children attend Fidelity and cannot speak highly enough about their time there. Both flourished in the care of the teachers. We appreciate the Community feel and all the Kindergarten stands for. All inclusive and with a diverse curriculum. “
“My son… had issues separating from me and the teachers handled this so well, calling me to tell when he had settled. I felt really at ease dropping him off. He now LOVES going to kinder, and it’s all thanks to the caring, wonderful teachers. I highly recommend Fidelity and will be sending all my future children there! “
“I truly believe [Fidelity] is one of the best kindergartens in Ballarat. The Fidelity Kindergarten staff are all extremely experienced and highly skilled educators who are very caring and passionate about educating children in the early years. They have helped my daughter grow enormously in confidence and assisted her with developing the skills necessary to flourish at primary school next year. They have worked in close partnership with me throughout this year for the best outcomes for my daughter, which I am extremely grateful for.”
ECKA is committed to recruiting, retaining and investing in a highly skilled, collaborative workforce who are passionate about educating children in the early years.
