Marino Early Learners believes that each child is unique and brings their own qualities and experiences to our Centre. Inspired by the Reggio Emilia approach to education, we believe that the direction of learning must be influenced by each individual child’s needs and that play-based learning, through experiences of touching, moving, listening, and observing provides the best environment for children to explore their own learning. We focus on understanding each child and providing them with opportunities to express themselves through their play and through their relationships with other children and adults, the community and the world around them.
Key aspects of this at Marino Early Learners are exploring their own and other cultures and developing an understanding of difference. We also use our unique outdoor space and engagement with the community to help the children learn about healthy eating habits, the environment and the world around them. We believe that when children are able to understand their world better, they are better able to find their place within it.
Marino Early Learners is committed to providing our children and families with the most personal and professional care available. Each family is important to us and we work diligently to create a community that nurtures each child in a happy and safe environment, creating a positive sense of self.
