We are committed to developing and maintaining strong relationships with children, families and communities. We recognise the important links between these connections and the positive impacts they have on children's overall learning.
We believe in environments that are inspired by our children, where wonder, agency and curiosity pave the way for enriching, hands on learning experiences. Children are encouraged to follow a process of inquiry, discover, create and collaborate with others in alignment with the Early Years Learning Framework, Queensland Kindergarten Guidelines, My Time Our Place and the National Quality Standards.
Risky play is encouraged at our centre and children are supported to develop their understanding of the world around them and insight into the society of which they live and learn. Children have access to loose parts, natural resources and learn real life skills which is an integral part of our curriculum.
Tigger's Place Early Learning Centre endeavours to maintain sustainable practices that contribute to the reduction of our environmental footprint and our ongoing journey towards sustainability. We aim to instil a love of animals, nature and connections to the land so that young children develop lifelong respectful attitudes towards the environment.
Our service recognises the benefits of holistic learning, where the mind body and soul are valued equally. Tigger's Place Early Learning Centre is a home away from home and we understand the important role that a sense of belonging plays in our overall wellbeing.
All children at our centre will have equal access to learning, irrespective of age, race, gender or abilities. We pride ourselves in meeting the needs of all children in our care and regularly outsource community agencies to strengthen our programs and provide additional support.
We recognise the Yugambeh people as the traditional custodians of the land on which we play and learn. We strive to embed Aboriginal and Torres Strait Island perspectives in all aspects of our service. We value individuality as a part of our community and our role in the greater society in which we exist.
We believe in promoting healthy lifestyles through collaboration with Get up and Grow and Feed Australia, strictly following recommendations from both organisations. Our service will be maintained to a high standard ensuring all children are protected and safe.
Information discussed with families is treated with the highest regard to confidentiality and they are valued as contributing stakeholders in our service. Their vision for their children, contribution of skills, traditions and bonds make our centre what it is today.
Tigger's place values its educators and strives to keep our team inspired by supporting their wellbeing and passion for excellence in early childhood education.
I can't begin to express how thankful we are for everything you have done over the years.
From the Dempsey Family
Both of my children still attend the centre and I have seen them develop into confident young boys, due to the staff's efforts and various programme's they have on offer.
Involvement from parents/extended family members etc is always encouraged and welcomed.
The staff are absolutely AMAZING!!!
