In 2023 Langwarrin Park Preschool has fourteen staff members employed by the committee of management to work with your child and to ensure the smooth running of the preschool. All of our staff members have different backgrounds and levels of experience which means that there is a wealth of ideas and knowledge available to benefit your child. Our staff are committed to providing the highest possible standard of education for our students.
With the introduction of the 15 hours of preschool and new adult/child rations over the last few years, the number of staff working with our four year old groups is now: one teacher holding a Bachelor of Teaching degree, one educator holding a Diploma of Early Childhood Education, and one educator (formally preschool assistant) with a Certificate III in Early Childhood Education and Care or equivalent.
A MESSAGE FROM THE STAFF
“The most important thing that we want for your child is to have a happy, productive and fun learning experience.
Whilst at preschool the children are constantly learning through play, interactions and experiences. We base our program on the children’s interests and provide activities that are suitable for each individual.
All children develop at different rates and we do not have a set level that the children must attain by the end of the year, Rather, we aim to provide an environment where the child’s natural curiosity and desire to play and learn is encouraged. The preschool year is one of informal learning where ideas are fostered and interests are developed and expanded upon. Your child’s development is challenged daily without pressure and at their own rate. Because of this we do not provide formal assessments but we are ALWAYS happy to talk to you about your child’s development at nay time throughout the year.
We believe that by having respectful, open and collaborate relationships with the parents we will be able to offer the best education for your child. Parents are welcome at preschool at all times, and we are always available to talk to you about your child – you only need to ask and make a time.”
