Every parent is very particular to where they would leave their child while they work. Future Super Stars Early Learning Centres are child care, government-assessed centres for 6 weeks to 5-year-olds that create a safe and warm environment wherein your child reaches his full potential. Their approach to teaching is a product of their well-designed programmes that parents collaborated with and enhanced by the continuous professional training of their staff.
Future Super Stars Early Learning Centres are across Melbourne. They have Clayton childcare centre, Sunshine childcare centre and Epping childcare centre.
Their Sunshine preschool, in Sunshine West, VIC in Australia, is a newly built Sunshine childcare centre. It has the centres’ trademark assurance of not just babysitting while parents are working. Through their programmes, the children learn individualism and grow in a very fun, play-based learning environment.
When choosing your child’s preschool, everyone considers a general list: location, accreditation, cost, schedule, safety and teachers’ credentials. But the most important one, to set your child’s learning, which would always be his approach as he goes through life, is the school’s philosophy.
Play-based or academic educational philosophy
Play-based programs, oftentimes called “child-centered,” are what define many preschools. Sunshine daycare provides this educational philosophy. Children’s activities based on their interests are given. Take a look at the classroom. Does it have designated areas such as a science area, reading nook, kitchen, water table, etc.? This is a play-based classroom programme. Here, teachers facilitate the playtime of the children making sure that valuable social skills and learning, like being familiar with labeled signs and doing simple math, happen.
Academic-based programs, or “teacher-directed,” is the total opposite of play-based. This is where teachers lead and guide children’s learning with planned activities to prepare them for kindergarten.
Though it seems better to put children in an academically based learning centre, the effect of learning here is only short. It is because the most important skills to learn during the preschool age are social and emotional skills that can only be achieved in a play-based learning centre. The academics can catch later on.
Reggio Emilia approach
A type of play-based program, this approach takes the natural development of children and how they interact with their environment. This approach believes that children develop their personality during their early years and that they speak “a hundred languages”. These symbolic languages like painting, drawing, drama, and the like need encouragement so that children can use them. Future Super Stars Early Learning Centres make sure that children’s learning environment is supportive, enriching and based on the children’s interests so they would be curious enough to learn. It focuses on respect, responsibility and community. The learning centres, operating on this approach, also build a relationship with the kids’ families for a homely environment. They talk with the kids’ parents so both school and family can work hand in hand to create future superstars.
