Amanda Bartlett

2IC and Lead Educator of Sugar Gliders (2-3 years)

My personal philosophy is derived from my love of children and learning. Having years of experience with under twos has continued to shape my personal beliefs and growth as an educator. I endeavour to always create a home away from home for each child. I have a nurturing approach to the children first and foremost and to their learning. Relationships, community and connectedness are central to both learning and wellbeing.

I view each child as competent, valuable as an individual. I will take an organic approach to your child’s learning and tailor it to their likes, dislikes, strengths, skills, abilities and knowledge to extend their learning.

Early years of children lives are busy! I believe learning is happening all the time and interwoven through developmental domains; these include physical, social/emotional, cognitive and communication.

 

My goal for my program is to make this ongoing learning experience safe, positive, and fun. Nurturing the whole child as I strive to guide them into the next stage of development with confidence and excitement!

Children should be given choices, responsibilities and opportunities to initiate their own learning. I believe children learn through play. Their play should be unhurried and unrushed. I will provide opportunities for children to explore, discover, create, imagine and make mess!
