Emali Early Learning Centres are a privately owned and operated group of child care centres in South Australia. Our centres provide a safe, caring and home like environment where children are able to feel comfortable and to be themselves. We are committed to providing a high-quality education and care service within a welcoming, inclusive, engaging and safe environment for our children, families and educators.
Setting a new benchmark within the industry Emali Early Learning Centres fosters a Growth Mindset culture across our organisation that encourages the growth and development of all our employees. We value open and honest communication and recognise its importance when working as a team. Educators partner with families to support each child’s learning. We view our educators and management team as positive role models for each other and the children.
Early childhood is a time for play, fun, discovery, curiosity, adventure, and imagination. We believe that a child learns beneficially through play using a collaborative approach to teaching that follows the children’s interests. Through play-based learning children are able to develop a sense of Belonging, Being and Becoming. We are committed to nurturing and growing the whole child using an evidence-based approach that aligns early years pedagogies with our current understanding of brain development in early childhood. Our focus is to empower children to live, love and learn whilst discovering their place in the world. We believe that children are valuable members of society and we respect and acknowledge each child as an individual learner, valuing them regardless of their culture, demographics or abilities.
“We encourage each child to explore their independence and be stimulated by their surroundings”.
Our Centres are purposefully designed and built with the highest grade materials, fostering a nurturing environment and a caring community feel. Our small sized classrooms allow families to have the opportunity to connect and build strong relationships with our educators and other families.
Our Vision is to create resilient and confident children who will be Australia’s great future. Our directors, teachers and educators are focused on providing children with individualised learning experiences that are driven by the individual educational needs of each child. We use a model of learning that is built on the science of natural brain development, setting the right foundations for learning whilst developing the social and emotional capacity of young children. We do this by engaging our children in individually guided play-based learning experiences underpinned by the principles of the Early Learning Years Framework (ELYF) in alignment with a child’s sensorimotor and brain development.
Our Guiding Principles
- A child’s safety comes first and then we teach
- Our staff are our greatest asset – we support and trust them
- We respect and value our families who are our primary partners
- Connection to our communities completes the child’s circle of learning
