Why is Evoke Early Learning Albert Park different from other child care centres?
For starters, everyday life at our centre is guided by the globally acclaimed Reggio Emilia approach to early education. This innovative philosophy recognises, values and respects each child as a uniquely creative, curious and capable individual who can self-direct their own learning based on their passions, observations and interests.
Reggio Emilia is widely acknowledged as setting a strong foundation for a young child’s readiness for entry into kindergarten and early school and for inspiring a lifelong love of learning.
We know from experience that children thrive in play-based environments and that’s why our classrooms and outdoor areas have been carefully designed and purposefully resourced to support this self-guided curriculum through play. Our safe and nurturing spaces have also been curated to suit the children’s different developmental stages.
Our spaces are also very nature-forward because the Reggio Emilia approach believes that the environment is the ‘third teacher’ (alongside the educators and the child’s parents, family and community).
Another important differentiator is our inclusive and authentic environment which is culturally representative of the community around us. Everyone is welcome - and made to feel welcome.
How does our approach set us apart?
We’ve talked about Reggio Emilia and how this inspirational philosophy has influenced the way of life at Evoke Albert Park, but it’s also important to know how your child will benefit from this approach.
