Our Educators and Our Enviroments
Educators at Teddy Bear Corner have the benefit of working in well resourced and maintained centers, allowing for rich and meaningful play and learning activities. More importantly, our services place a strong emphasis on natural play, ensuring the environments for children are filled with natural elements, retaining much of the aspects you might find in a home backyard. Our educators provide for children’s innate fascination with ordinary natural items (like sticks, stones and leaves) and recyclable/reusable objects for both free play and structured activities. The services are inspired by Reggio Emilia ideals and values the importance of educating our children on sustainable practices and protecting the environment for themselves, and the wider community’s future. This is displayed in our everyday ‘green’ cleaning practices and our ‘loose parts play’ philosophy.
We believe that by focusing on children’s strengths we can build their confidence and faith in themselves, enabling them to pursue, persevere and succeed in their goals and in their challenges. These dispositions, developed at a young age will last and assist them throughout their schooling years, resulting in happy, confident, and contributing members of society.
Our Educators take an active role in supporting children to make choices, to access resources and to extend and explore their ideas. We provide each child with the opportunity to develop genuine and trusting relationships to allow them to feel accepted and valued within their social communities.
