3 Years - 6 Years
Treetops Stepney Wattle House is located directly next to our original Stepney Centre. This centre has been designed specifically for 3 – 6 year olds. Our centre is driven by educators that have a passion for Early Years Education. The educators within our service all hold early childhood qualifications including certificate 3, diplomas or a bachelor of teaching and are equipped with years of experience working in the childcare profession.
Learning is based on children’s interests and qualified staff plan a curriculum that offers a wide variety of experiences in the areas of math, science, literacy, environment, health, art and creativity, physical and social development. This curriculum is based on the recommended National Early Years Framework, and the centre operates under the National Standards.
We have a large natural outdoor area where children are encouraged to explore and play in this wonderful natural environment.
My name is Justine and I am the Director at Treetops Stepney.
I have a very extensive background in early childhood. Starting when I was 11 babysitting the neighbour’s children. I have grown from a Certificate 3 in Early childhood, to Obtaining my diploma, moving on to my Advance diploma, a diploma in Child Psychology, and currently studying Play therapy.
With two children of my own 16-year-old son and 13-year-old daughter, it is so nice to be able to spend time with the younger generation. I enjoy listening to them, watching them grow and develop and they continue to amaze and inspire me daily.
I will treat your child as an individual and encourage them to reach their very greatest potential. I believe in “real life” experiences, encouraging risky play, allowing children to determine the level of risk they are willing to take, all while supporting them, should they need it. I want your children to make choices, to make mistakes and learn from them.
I will encourage your child to try their very best at anything they have a go at. I believe every child can achieve anything under the right guidance. Children learn best through play, and myself and my wonderful team will be there for your child should they need us.
I will respect your child for who they are, and always make time for them.
I look forward to meeting with you and your child soon.
