We value early childhood education as the foundation for lifelong learning. We believe that each child is a unique individual and should be viewed, respected and treated as such. As the welfare and wellbeing of each child is paramount, we strive to provide holistic support of the child’s exclusive requirements and interests in a nurturing, familial environment that fosters the child’s development across all developmental domains.

Carers at the Tree House place an extremely high value on the environment in the early learning context. For this reason, careful attention and detail is encapsulated in its design so as to allow for rich, authentic experiences to occur on a full time basis. Our early learning context supports scaffolding children’s learning and development through quality interactions with peers, parents and carers in the overall attempt to pave the way for an exploratory understanding of themselves, the world around them and their place in it.

Our educational programs are reflective of emergent curriculum and adhere to guidelines set by ACECQA, National Quality Framework and The Early Years Learning Framework, taking the child’s developmental level into account.

Our programs are completed and implemented daily. A sizeable portion of them is occupied by planned implications observed in individual children; however, there is also substantial opportunity for the children to participate in spontaneous independent experiences as part of play based learning.

Experiences at the centre afford children the opportunity to develop a plethora of skills in exploration, self-discovery, social interactions and problem solving among others, in the overall attempt to set the children up for success. Educators at the Tree House complete learning stories while observing the children and share these with parents and guardians upon completion.
