    We also pride ourselves on supporting ‘Culturally and Linguistic Diverse’ families. Several of our educators speak more than one language including Japanese, Mandarin and Iranian.

    Our Program:

    Our service follows the ‘Early Years Learning Framework’ and from October 2019 will fall under the ‘National Quality Standards’.

    Children’s learning and development is observed and programmed on an individual and group level. Observations are regularly taken of children and shared with families through our ‘kinderloop’ app or individual learning portfolios.

    Our Philosophy:

    At Turratots, we strive to create a child-centred learning environment where your child will feel nurtured, safe and comfortable to explore their world. .

    We aim to support children’s learning at their own pace and at their appropriate developmental level and individual interests. This is achieved by including parents in our planning so we take an holistic approach to children’s knowledge, skills and home environment.

    We uphold the values of our professional code of conduct:

    – We act in the best interests of our children and families

    – We respect the families’ right to privacy and confidentiality

    – We value open communication and critical reflection of our practices

    – We value each other as educators and work as a team to provide a professional approach to educating your children
