Our Team

Meet our staff.

The Team

Our Preschool aims to cater for each child’s individual needs and interests within trusting and secure surroundings.  We believe it is vital to foster self esteem, empathy for others, sharing and co-operation, independence and problem solving.  We also aim to reflect the Australian culture by encouraging indigenous and multicultural perspectives in the children’s’ play.  We feel that children learn best through play and language-rich interactions.
School readiness is addressed for children getting ready for ‘Big School’.  This includes information sessions for children and parents/carers, visits to local schools, and information exchanges with the local schools.
All staff plan, organise and supervise the programs.  Springwood Preschool has two fully staffed classrooms above Department of Education recommended ratios, both with 20 children in each room.

The Environment

Our outdoor environment is fully accredited by the Department of Education and Communities as being safe, clean, and educational.  It includes soft-fall and synthetic grass, a large sandpit area, a hill with tunnel, a large climbing centre with slide, and enough area for the assortment of bikes, scooters and other outdoor equipment available to the children.  We also currently have a small flower garden/vegetable patch, which the children maintain.  The outdoor area is very well shaded, providing essential sun-protection.

Our Classrooms

The Possum Room

In the Possum Room we believe a love of learning is the best foundation for life long education. Our classroom is set up to encourage children to initiate their own play and to provide them with the opportunity to engage in a range of play experiences. Our team of educators are there to support and scaffold the children’s learning across all developmental and curriculum areas. 

Positive relationships are important to us. We recognise parents are a child’s first teacher and encourage their input into their child’s individual growth. We share information about learning through our program, emails, and classroom displays. We believe in acceptance of others and the respect of the land, people, and animals.

The Possum Team want children to have happy memories of preschool.

The Wombat Room

In the Wombat Room we would like children, families and educators to experience a sense of belonging and connection to our learning community.

Secure and respectful relationships are integral to our classroom therefore we intentionally invest time and effort into these relationships. When children feel safe and supported, they grow in confidence to explore and learn.

In the Wombat Room we provide a holistic play-based learning environment and curriculum in which children are encouraged and supported to investigate and explore. Social and emotional learning is just as important as developing literacy, numeracy and other cognitive skills. It is our goal that the Wombat children will develop a love of play and therefore a love of learning… because play is really learning in disguise! During early childhood play is the best way for brains to grow and develop, particularly play that is self-initiated and self-directed. Therefore, educators carefully plan and design environments and provocations that inspire children in this way.

We hope that the Wombat children develop a sense of ownership and control over their learning. In the Wombat Room we acknowledge the traditional owners of the land and we promise to look after each other, the land and the animals.
