From Ancient Greek εὔνοια (eunoia), meaning “beautiful thinking”, literally “well-mindedness”.
Our Centre Manager has extensive experience in and is incredibly knowledgeable about Early Childhood development, both overseas and in Australia. We select those aspects of various theoretical approaches that pertain most to children’s development (Reggio Emilia, Maria Montessori, Uri Bronfenbrenner) and apply them in Eunoia environment. STEAM, independence, cooking, gardening, worm farms, interactions with stick insects (and much more!) will be part of our Early Learning Program, which prepares children not only for the increased independence required for school, but for life as well.
We believe in ongoing learning for staff and team members as well as for children. Our childcare centre will provide regular internal and external professional development for staff members. Their pedagogical skills will be continuously reinforced and strengthen in order to foster children’s strengths and interests to plan activities and experiences to support their holistic development and sense of agency.
Most of our staff members speak two or three languages – the most popular languages of City of Casey. Multiculturally-competent staff will be able to support parents from various backgrounds and build partnerships to develop secure, trusted and respectful relationships with our families and the wider local community.
