Welcome to Willow Close Preschool Centre

Children are at the centre of everything we do.

 

OUR PHILOSOPHY

Willow Close Preschool offers caring, safe and supportive environment where children, educators and families feel welcome and are included as an integral part of the Centre.  We provide a high quality inclusive teaching and learning environment for all children based on the Principles, Practices and Outcomes from the Early Years Learning Framework.

Preschool educators work in partnership with families, recognising and valuing their place as children's first educators.  Information and resources from families are used to plan for each child and the kindergarten group.

Children bring a variety of experiences, values and attitudes to Preschool.  Educators value each child as an individual with unique needs, strengths and abilities.  We celebrate individual differences and actively include children's voice when we are planning for learning and offer a culturally appropriate inclusive curriculum.

Preschool offers group experience as part of the continuum of each child's life-long learning.  At Willow close Preschool educators provide a rich curriculum both indoors and outdoors to provoke ongoing learning for all children.  Children learn about the environment, sustainability and the world around them through play, in an active learning environment.

 

ACKNOWLEDGEMENT OF COUNTRY

We acknowledge that the land Willow Close Preschool is built upon is the traditional ancestral land of the Peramangk people.  We acknowledge the deep feelings of attachment and relationship of the Peramangk people to this land and their ongoing custodianship.  We also pay respects to the cultural authority of Aboriginal people visiting from other areas of South Australia or Australia present here.
