Kreative Kidz Philosophy
At Kreative Kidz, we believe in the uniqueness and potential of each child and their right to participate in a highly engaging, play-based learning program. The early years of a child’s life is the most crucial stage of development and we ensure responsibility to provide exceptional holistic developmental experiences during their time with us. We value and promote the inclusion of children and their families and ensure to incorporate their values and opinions during the planning and delivery of our program.
Kreative Kidz uses the Early Years Learning Framework, ‘Belonging, Being and Becoming’ and Framework for School Aged Care ‘My Time, Our Place’ as the basis for our curriculum to ensure our children are on the path to success.
Kreative Kidz offers a well-balanced, safe, secure and enjoyable learning environment, which reflects a non-bias, diverse, inclusive and culturally balanced curriculum. We strongly believe each family has the right for their needs to be met and we will support and encourage families and children with additional needs. We also acknowledge Aboriginal Australians and Torres Strait Islanders as the traditional custodians of the land, water and community in which we live.
Educational Program and Practice:
Kreative Kidz Preschool believes and supports children’s current knowledge, needs and strength by providing a supportive environment based on stimulating and play-based learning that is enriched with the interaction between educators and families. We use a number of different academic theorists as well as current research to support the learning of the children in our centre.Our centre aims to promote and enhance individual children’s development through various methods.
Our pedagogy is based on the National Quality Framework to achieve the five learning outcomes for children.Kreative Kidz has a routine in place to allow children both as individuals and in groups to explore, make choices and decision, solve problems and to allow educators to interact with them and build attachments and positive relationship to meet every child’s need. Each child’s learning and development is assessed as part of an ongoing cycle of observing, analyzing, planning, documenting, implementing, and evaluation/reflection.
Our centre supports digital learning and engages children in researching and school readiness programs through intentional teaching and play based learning. Critical reflection on children’s learning and development, both as individual and groups is regularly used to implement the program. We encourage children to express their ideas, thoughts and feelings freely without judgement.
Children’s Health and Safety:
Kreative Kidz Preschool ensures that children not only have access to healthy food but are educated on a regular basis about the benefits of healthy eating and nutrition. We teach and do role modelling to our children to be individuals who can perform tasks independently, for example, serving them food and putting away leftovers for organic compost. We implement varieties of games and physical activities in the program with effective supervision such as “Munch and Move” to encourage children to participate for their health and well-being.
At Kreative Kidz, we encourage good hygiene practices to develop lifelong positive hygiene habits among children. It also helps to reduce the risk of cross infection between children and adults. Kreative Kidz team aims to provide a hygienic environment by uplifting their hygiene practices during COVID pandemic to minimize the spread of infection. Educators encourage and role model good hygiene habits and to maintain social distancing where necessary. Kreative Kidz encourages everyone to participate in their hygiene policies review and follow hygiene procedures when they visit the service and at home.
We ensure children are able to take on new ideas and extend their thinking so we can develop further on their interests. The environment is a strong learning aspect for a child’s life, and we invest time, finances, planning and provision to ensure children are getting the best outdoor experience. We promote care and respect for our environment through sustainable practices, such as recycling natural materials and growing plants.
Kreative Kidz Preschool aims to increase awareness of our environmental responsibilities by contributing to a cleaner, sustainable future using the concept of ‘Reduce, Re-use and Recycle’. We ensure our children feel positive about the future and the environment. This is done by being introduced to explore all aspects of nature. We also have an ongoing organic gardening project where children are taught and encouraged to participate in the planning and watering of our centres garden.
