Treetops Findon prides itself on being a warm and friendly experience for not only the children, but also the families who enter the centre.
We aim to satisfy the needs of both you and your child while in our care. We encourage an open door policy which allows parents the opportunity to “stay and play” if they wish. Visually stimulating colours and our children’s art work is displayed around the centre to help create a rich a colourful environment for the children to learn and play. Experiences on offer for children are as endless as your child’s imagination. We provide Greek language classes once a week to embrace our multicultural diversity. A “quiet area” in each of the rooms is available for children to sit and have some time, reading books or relaxing. The staff team here at Findon share a commitment to provide quality care to children which is nurturing and supportive. The centre caters for 74 children, divided into 3 rooms ranging from 6 weeks to 5 years.
Infants - Our Nursery room has 2 separate indoor areas, one designed for children who are mobile and the other side for children who are not yet mobile. This is put into place in order for the younger babies to have safety while enjoying such things as tummy time. We have three separate cot rooms which are all individually heated and cooled to cater to the children’s individual needs which may vary. The room is equipped with a variety of developmentally appropriate toys to meet children’s interests.
Toddlers – The move from the Nursery room to the Toddlers room is an exciting time. All types of experiences are on offer in the Toddlers room including arts and creativity, imaginary play, outdoor play, singing and dancing. You’ll be amazed how quickly your walls and fridges at home will be filled with your child’s masterpieces.
Kindy – Preparing children for school is a large focus in the Kindy room. Children in this room work hard on learning such things as writing their names, the alphabet and numbers. Children practice problem solving and effective communication skills.
Each of the three rooms have programs based on the National Early Years Framework, and the centre operates under the National Standards. Team leaders observe and plan appropriate experiences for each age group.
My name is Crysthell Torres and I'm a Qualified Educator since 2006 within the Early Childhood sector and I am currently the new Director at Treetops ELC at Findon.
I have been an Educator for over 14 years now and I still enjoy working in the ChildCare industry.
I also had the opportunity to work 2 summers overseas in 2009 and 2010, in USA and getting to work with the 7-15 year old’s teaching them Archery and Riflery.
I have been with the Treetops ELC for over 3 years now in which I had the opportunity to work at the Hillcrest Centre as an Educator and as well as an Assistant Director for the last years.
I come from a Chilean background, where family is important to me, which is why I believe that all children have the right to learn and play within a safe and secure environment.
I understand the importance of offering a family an orientated Centre to all and encouraging them to feel comfortable in and as well as having an excellent quality of care.
I believe in building relationships with all families and ensuring all children are educated in a safe and happy environment.
My door is always open to queries, questions or even just a friendly chat.
I look forward to meeting you and having the opportunity to provide a safe, happy and engaging environment for your children to grow, develop and to learn.
