Our Findon Centre consists of five classrooms filled with beautiful natural light and three outdoor spaces. Our rooms support free flow learning between the indoor and outdoor environment.
We have a passionate team of 31 Educators who each bring a wealth of knowledge and life experience to the centre. We believe the exchange of ideas between parents and teachers is vital in creating a more positive and productive learning environment. We provide frequent communication to families through email, our Emali App, and but most importantly through conversations with families.
We believe children need to see, hear and feel that their choices are respected, heard and considered. Our educators do this by being available, responsive and reflective while valuing each child as a unique individual.
Our classrooms display meaningful photos and creations that represent the achievements and discoveries of the children. Our environments are Reggio-inspired, where the environment is often referred to as “the third teacher”. It is one that is open and free-flowing and enables uninterrupted exploration, play and learning. Children can pursue their own interests and revisit and build upon ideas at their own pace. Children are involved in the creation of the atmosphere and in turn feel a sense of ownership and empowerment.
Our outdoor environments provide opportunities to learn through play, with access to open ended materials and natural resources that stimulate investigation, reflection and present opportunities for the children to connect with nature.
Important to note
We offer many extracurricular activities at Findon such as YIPEE Yoga, Spanish, ViaDance and Dreamstart soccer.
We are well known and loved in our local community. We set out on regular visits to our local Woolworths, fruit and vegetable shop, and bottle recycling depot.
At our Findon Centre, we are committed to looking after the environment to ensure a sustainable future for our children. Children are actively involved in daily experiences which promote and support sustainability and encourage each of them in becoming environmentally responsible.
We would love to show you through our beautiful centre. Our passionate and friendly Centre Director will take you through with a guided tour, provide you with all the information you need, and will be able to answer any of your burning questions. Book a tour of Emali Findon today!
