Humpty Doo Preschool Philosophy

pre-school-image-supplied‘At Humpty Doo Preschool we believe that play is a child’s work and that learning occurs during developmentally appropriate, child-centred activities. Children learn concepts best when they are meaningful and relevant to them. They acquire knowledge through active exploration of their environment. It is our responsibility to provide a learning enriched environment, which provides stimulating and challenging experiences for them. The teacher acts as a facilitator, encouraging, promoting and reinforcing a child’s attempts, questions, skill development and discoveries.

We believe that building relationships is an important part of the work we do in preschool and parents are the children’s first teachers. The stronger the relationship between home and school is the more children gain from the preschool experience.’

At Humpty Doo Preschool we offer a play-based program centred on the needs of the children within the preschool and founded on the EYLF – Early Years Learning Framework and therefore the NT Preschool Curriculum.
