We encourage and support educators to continue their professional development within the workplace through formal studies, short courses and on-the-job training.
Our centre meets all the staffing requirements set out by the Department of Education and Early Childhood Development in Victoria.
Each Domain Leader and their team are responsible for the organisation and planning of each room under guidance from the Director and Educational Leader
I love the smaller family feel of our centre where you can see educators, parents & children know one another. Our 'risky play' & experiences set us above the rest as we have high expectations of our children and allow them a wider ranger of learning opportunities.
My favourite part of being a part of the KSMAL team is the welcoming team, families & children. Having the chance & support to grow & develop in my job. Everyone & the community helps out. Its so nice to see everyone working together.
I love that our centre offers natural resources for the children to learn from & all of our outdoor experiences like firepits, bush kinder & veggie patches.
I love how sustainable our centre is, the inviting rooms and our amazing educators. The experiences that are on offer are intrest based and promote learning.
I like the family feel in the Mullti-Age room, where older children engage with the younger children, giving everyone a sense of belonging and becoming.
I love that our centre promotes inclusiveness because I believe chidren need a sense of belonging to feel happy to participate & learn in our safe & secure enviroment. Our centres natural resources represents a home enviroment which I find is important.
I love that our enviroment is inclusive for all ages with inviting & engrossing activities both indoors and outdoors for the children to enjoy & learn from.
I like that the our centre is open for new ideas and operating procedures. Despite being a smaller center we have become multi-aged, offer bush kinder & do excursions where the whole centre is involved. I love that the babies have their own space to explore and be challanged. The educators have time to build good strong bonds with the babies, yet we are included in excursions & have family grouping, siblings can visit too.
I love that the centre offers alot of different activities throughout the centre for all the children to learn & grow from. I love that there is a bush kinder program, it gives the children a good sense of knowledge about the bush & nature.
I love the relationship created with children I love how the learning enviroment creates spaces for the children to explore, take risks & challenge themselves. It is great to see the children become the best, most confident versions of themselves.
Our Centre feels homely & welcoming when you walk in the rooms. Always nice smells coming from the kitchen & friendly faces to greet you. Great interactions with parents.
I love learning from my seniors and implementing their advice while Im working to improve and enhance more knowledge about my profession is my favourite part of being a part of the Ksmal team.
