This week, 3rd to the 7th of August is ‘Early Learning Matters’ week. Kylie has written on behalf of the Centre ‘What Early Learning means to us’. At Rose Park Community Childcare (RPCC) we believe a child’s journey through life, is to learn how to become functional citizens of society, through interactions with others, the community and the environment. We feel that the importance of early education is to provide children with a holistic approach to learning. To learn how to interact with others, for identity, cultural inclusion and diversity, for self confidence and a strong sense of self and to maintain healthy relationships for a sense of belonging. To connect and be connected with the natural environment, to be mindful, to listen and to show care and respect for others. We are advocates for the child’s voice, as we listen and attune into the ‘100 languages of children’ (Loris Malaguzzi – founder of the Reggio Emilia approach). All children have the right to an education and being in the early education sector, the educators at RPCC have the privilege to start children on their learning journey" Check out the website if you get a chance. www.earlylearningmatters.org.au/ They are also asking for parents to write about what Early Learning means to them. #earlylearningmatters… See MoreSee Less
