Turtle Cove Early Learning Centre

Our family and staff believe we can have a positive impact- not only on the lives of children, but on their families and the community.

The philosophy of Turtle Cove is to:

  • provide a secure, safe, loving and welcoming environment which promotes warm and positive relationhships.
  • encourage positive habits associated with play, rest, exercise, eating and toileting practices to ensure good health.
  • provide an enriching and spacious environment with ready access to natural materials such as water, sand, trees, dirt & grass (to enhance appreciation and love for the environment).
  • build self esteem by providing play based experiences to stimulate emotional, physical, social and cognitive development appropriate to the development age of the individual child.
  • assist in moral development and encourage the upholding of Christian values - showing kindness and consideration, forgiving and loving one another irrespective of gender or any other bias.
  • encourage work and play in an acceptable manner, to learn about fairness, take turns, share and respect the efforts of others.
  • provide an interesting and stimulating environment which is flexible in incorporating the needs, interests and skills of the Turtle Cove community.
  • increase an awareness of the community by inviting special visitors, going on excursions and introducing topics of interest.
  • enrich the lives of all children by respecting an individual's culture and providing multicultural experiences in the program.
  • ensure policies and procedures which protect and enhance the wellbeing of children are implemented and reviewed regularly.
  • provide an environment where children can make real choices about learning.

More than just child care

Central to our Philosophy is the importance of self esteem and confidence in one's self. We believe that children's attitudes to themselves and to learning will determine how well they learn.

Our aim is to empower the children to achieve their potential
