Numeracy and Counting Seeds
12-04-2017 
Early this term some of the children picked some tomatoes from our vegetable garden and were very interested in the seeds inside. This led to counting the seeds and then exploring a range of fruit to predict if the fruit would have one seed or many seeds.

Philosophy

At St. George's we believe our learning environment is child centred, play based, and inclusive of all families.

Reflective and sustainable practice is embedded in all we do.


We demonstrate our philosophy by:  

Welcoming all children and families to St. George's on an equal basis and making access and participation in our program a positive experience for all.  

Listening carefully to children and developing relationships with adults who are important in children's lives.   

Celebrating and respecting Australia's Indigenous communities, cultural diversity and the use of home languages.  

Ensuring that the Early Years Learning Framework's principles, practices and learning outcomes are our cornerstone.

  Developing links with local schools and community.  

Embedding literacy and numeracy in our everyday practice.  

Presenting the children with a wide range of authentic resources that build on their interests and encourage them to make choices, problem solve and develop independence.  

Building confidence and encouraging positive interactions and collaborative learning.  

Providing children with large blocks of time to allow them to fully engage in meaningful experiences.  

Creating beautiful spaces where precious and interesting resources are used to provoke thinking and encourage curiosity.  

Developing children's small and large muscles and engaging in active play.  

Being highly focused on the children within our care.  

Committing to ongoing learning and reflective practice.  

Fostering children's engagement with nature and natural materials indoors and outdoors every day.  

Encouraging children and families to be part of the process of sustainability through participating in gardening, worm farming, recycling and reducing their use of lunch wrap.  

Raising awareness about Fair Trade with the children and their families and in purchasing Fair Trade resources whenever possible.  

Seeing the preschool's management committee as a productive body that provides guidance and supports educators and staff in the provision of quality, affordable early childhood education.
