Appleseed Childcare is a place of fun, love, games, stories, songs, play and imagination – but behind all of our activities is a guiding program of Early Childhood Education and Development.
Our Early Childhood Educators are fully qualified, very experienced and extremely dedicated to their roles - many have been with Appleseed since it opened in 2010.
We truely value continuity of care and know how important consistency is in a young child's life - which is why we our team is only made of of all permanent part-time and full-time educators. We employee regular permanent float educators which enables us to refrain from using "casual" or "agency" educators. This means that your child will always know and be familiar with every educator in the service!
We are a small service - with only 49 children in attendance each day and our enrolled families stay with us from nursery to preschool. What this means is that your child isn't just a number or another face in the crowd! We are so proud of the tight-knit service we provide - with each educator knowing every child, regardless of room or age group, individually. For your child, it provides them an additional sense of belonging and security.
Our service highly values continued professional learning and development - we hold regular professional development training and a high number of our Educators are furthering their own individal studies.
We know that the early years of life are the most important for learning - with 90% of a child's brain development occuring in the first 5 years of a child's life. This time is when the foundations for future learning is laid. We also know that higher qualifications equal a higher quality service and higher quality education. This is why our service has employed not just one but FOUR fully qualified Early Childhood Teachers, with an additional FIVE Educators part way through their 4year degree.
