As we start the new year, the Early Learning Centre program focus has been around building relationships, between children and between adults and children.

We recognise the importance of building positive and trusting relationships to support children’s sense of belonging which in turn gives children the sense of feeling safe and secure.

As stated in our philosophy we believe all children’s wellbeing, culture and dispositions for learning are supported through relationships and play.

The peekaboo beans blog says: “In play, children learn about friendships and how to negotiate with others in social situations.”

Through our relationships and play we learn with and from each other.

In the early learning centre we are a community of learners.
