Our Morphett Vale Centre has five age suitable rooms with three outdoor play spaces. The rooms are filled with beautiful art pieces created by the children. This gives the children a sense of homeliness throughout the centre.
Our dedicated team at Morphett Vale are warm and caring. We have a strong passion for ensuring your children feel safe and cared for during their time here. We work with families and communicate via email, our Emali App, and parent-teacher interviews.
Our Cradle and walkers’ rooms are large inviting, rooms. Children spend their days enjoying their time with their peers who are developmentally at a similar stage. These rooms work to promote a strong sense of attachment and individual care for each child. There is also focus on supporting children to develop their emerging social skills.
Our Forest room caters for children that are becoming more involved in their own development. Our Educator’s key focus is on supporting children to develop self-regulation and self-help skills.
The Ocean Room works to extend children’s emerging self-regulation and self-help skills. It also assists children in negotiating increasingly complex social relationships. Language development and communication is a key focus for these educators. This is where literacy and numeracy learning starts to become more visible.
The Safari room is the centre’s Kindergarten Program, led by an Early Childhood Teacher. The Kindy Program encourages self-help skills and positive relationships. Emali also promote literacy and numeracy development, and school readiness. Our inquiry approach to curriculum allows children to take the lead in their learning. This assists children to develop positive attitudes towards learning, leading to better outcomes in the future.
Important to note
Understanding of the benefits of caring for pets, our centre has introduced fish tanks. We’ve also adopted Alby the Axolotl. The children are involved in the day to day care of the animals.
At Emali we believe in learning through play. Our activities at Morphett Vale include Dance lessons, Auslan (Australian Sign Language) and Yoga. These are wonderful learning experiences for the children’s self-regulation and flexibility. Allowing children to be children and learn through “real life” experiences is important to our curriculum.
Each of the rooms engages in experiences that help build connections with the local community. This is important to support children to develop a strong sense of belonging. Children regularly walk to the local shopping complex. This contains important local businesses like Foodland, Vinnies store and Morphett Vale Fresh Bakery. Antonio Catholic School is located nearby. Our children visit Reception classrooms supporting our school leavers. This develops positive relationships within the school environment. The children also enjoy trips on the “Emali Adventure Bus” to visit Woodcroft Library.
Sustainability is an integral part of life at Emali Morphett Vale. We work to educate and encourage action towards positive outcomes for our environment. We recycle and reuse as much as we can within the centre. This , includes paper, soft plastics and biodegradable food scraps. The centre also reduces the energy consumption by participating in a daily ‘Earth Hour’. During this hour, all lights and other unnecessary electronics are switched off.
