SPARROW EARLY LEARNING HUNTINGDALE
Huntingdale, Western Australia
ABOUT OUR EARLY LEARNING SERVICE
Sparrow Early Learning Huntingdale is a delightfully homely centre on the corner of Huntingdale Rd and Flowerwood Way and caters to children and families from around the area, including Thornlie, Gosnells, Maddington and even as far as Byford.
We pride ourselves on our relationships with our families and our children and prioritise these first and foremost, as we are all partners in every child’s learning journey.
Our Educators at the Service are diverse in many areas, including their interests and their strengths as well as their backgrounds. We have a strong team environment at the Service and bring varied and extensive knowledge to the area of Early Childhood Education, with three university trained teachers on site as well as Diploma and Certificate qualified Educators.
At Sparrow Early Learning Huntingdale, we provide the children with healthy, nutritionally balanced meals throughout the day and accommodate any families with special medical or cultural requirements.
Our indoor and outdoor spaces are always changing based on the interests of the children and our changing programs. Our program is based on the Early Years Learning Framework, which is a national curriculum catering for children from birth to five years. We also link our learning and our experiences to the WA Kindergarten Curriculum, closely aligning our learning with preparing our Kindy children for school.
MEET OUR SERVICE MANAGER
My name is Lisa and I am the Service Manager at Sparrow Early Learning Huntingdale. I have worked in the early learning sector since 1995 and I hold a Diploma in Children’s Services. Starting as a Junior trainee, I have been able to gain experience throughout my career in every room and position in centres and am passionate about ensuring that all Educators are advocates for children and developing leaders of our future.
Drawing inspiration from pedagogical practices from Reggio Emilia and theorist Lev Vygotsky, I believe children learn best in an environment that nurtures their curiosity, exploration and when Educators are on hand to facilitate their learning. Working alongside children to create stimulating learning environments that foster the children’s interests and make learning through play visible is a vital part of our role as early years Educators. Seeing each child’s uniqueness and supporting them to develop their own personalities and creativity is a rewarding part of being an Educator.
I believe that working alongside families brings about a continuity between home life and centre life, giving the child the opportunity to develop their learning in a range of environments. Together we can give the child the best start in life.
Please feel free to come in and meet the team. We are all here to support you and your child into the centre, as well as being available for advice and help your throughout your parenting journey.
