Our family of educators here at AppleBerries Early Education Service act with genuine positivity, pride and energy and go out of their way to deliver exceptional Education and Care that goes above and beyond the ordinary. We acknowledge that all children have the right to feel like a unique, respected and valued part of an intricate and diverse family.
Understanding your child and what helps them engage is at the forefront when the educators are observing and planning for the children. All of our educators have families of their own and are qualified and engage in upskilling themselves regularly so that they can provide the best care and educational practices for your child. In addition, our Educators are crystal clear in their own "why", why do they do what they do.
When you ask the educators or families what they love about our centre they will tell you ‘it just feels like home’. We are very proud of this as it is a well-known fact that children will learn and develop much better in an environment where they feel safe and loved.
Inside each of our services, you will find large-sized studios filled with thought-provoking play stations to stimulate the children’s learning. Our rich outdoor environment is an essential part of the Education and care we provide. Our educators work to provide meaningful outdoor experiences that foster children’s understanding of the world around them by offering opportunities to get messy, explore, investigate, take risks, problem-solve, communicate and exercise resilience.
To ensure the best outcome for our children’s development we use our developmental observations, the children’s interests, and parent conversations and feedback to help build developmental goals for the children to ensure they reach their developmental milestones. The developmental goals are achieved through the provision of programs that engage the children in active learning, whilst providing them with a play space to be self-creative.
Along the way, if you feel or your educator feels that your child may need additional assistance with their development and ability to meet their milestones and goals, we can access the Queensland Health units Parents Evaluation of Developmental Status (PEDS) to have a health representative observe your child and give feedback on their development areas. This will allow our educators and you, our parents, work together to help your child have the best start to their future.
