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 passion for children and belief in the rights of a child in child care began 30 years ago, after completing the Child Care Certificate. This passion and belief has lead to me working in various fields relating to children, including working “on the floor” as a qualified staff, community work through a Toy Library- visiting homes of families with young children, on a referral basis, to assist with parenting skills, lecturing in Child Care, working with refugee families with young children and finally to a position of manager in a Child Care Centre.
The realisation that children in child care often spend more of their waking hours within the centre and with centre staff than with their parents has pushed me to strive to achieve high quality child care in all areas of the fields I have worked in. Child Care, for me, is a profession not just a job.
