LEARNING ENVIRONMENTS

Babies
Positions available for enrolment in 2021
6 weeks - 2 years

In our Babies Room we provide a nurturing environment for our youngest children, with the added benefit of trained teachers who lead an enthusiastic and dedicated learning environment.  We have consistent staff from 8am to 6pm, supporting a deep understanding and secure relationship with your child from arrival to departure. We know babies are intuitive and react negatively to high stress environments, so it is vital that we place an emphasis on creating a calm and relaxed atmosphere in our Babies Centre, through music, calming colours, and more wooden toys.

Come and see our new equipment in a freshly renovated area. The babies are enjoying their time exploring.

Our Toddlers Room is our toddler focused learning environment, Toddlers are making a transition from being babies to preschoolers and they need educators who are supportive of this exciting, but sometimes challenging, period in their lives. Toddlers need to have predictable routines and consistent expectations, both of themselves and others. They are constantly testing their own limitations and learning to consider their place in the world as an individual, whilst establishing a social context outside of their home environment. Belonging to a larger group, whilst still having the security of trusted educators and an educational program tailored to their specific requirements, is what we believe to be the best learning environment for our toddlers at Pinjarra.

Pinjarra Early Years, this age group are our oldest children at Gordon and they share their time together in the outdoor playground.  Preschool room provides an educational program which is responsive to pre-schoolers highly inquisitive minds and supportive of their remarkable ability to problem solve to find solutions in order to make sense of their world. Pre-Schoolers need educators who understand they have a strong desire to test out their theories and who provide a learning environment which enables this self-discovery to occur. Social relationships with their peers play a vital role in pre-schoolers lives and their confidence to participate in learning experiences. The Pre-school program allow educators to guide each child appropriately with pro-social skills of negotiating, turn-taking and consideration of different perspectives as they learn to share their world with each other.
