Seedlings Early Learning – Newmarket believe children who learn that helping others makes the community a better place for everyone usually commit themselves to a lifetime of community service. A community is more than simply a place or a collection of people who happen to love or work at the same place. Our Newmarket Childcare centre believes, creating a ‘sense of community’ is an essential part of what we do.
Strong links with the local community offer us invaluable resources and information to improve learning. By drawing on community knowledge and experience, we can understand the children and families with whom they work, and better able to provide children with learning experiences that are meaningful and relevant to their lives. Think of the impact your children can have on their community and the world!
We have a play-based learning strategy which encourages young children to make sense of their world and learn vital foundational skills within exploration, developing and practising language and physical skills and experimenting with new concepts. Children develop confidence, express themselves creatively, and develop their sense of self and identity. Besides personal exploration, they additionally learn co-operation and how to build relations and engage in a group.
Children will be encouraged to play independently, in small groups, in large groups, indoors and outdoors. Activities vary from building spatial perception with playdough or blocks to sharpening fine motor skills and awareness of colours and shapes with drawing and painting.
We are enthusiastic about assuring all children have passage to early learning and have tools and resources in place in our centre to support children with particular requirements or additional needs – from allergies to greater care needs such as physical or learning disabilities or behavioural concerns. Please speak with your Director about how we can work together to support your child’s individual needs.
