About Buggles Early Learning and Kindy - Atwell

At Buggles Early Learning and Kindy Atwell, we are a dedicated and close-knit group of educators and carers who are passionate about imparting the right kind of early education, love and care that children deserve. We understand that the ages from birth to six are integral in a child’s development and look to nurture children’s potential and developmental capacities at this stage. We follow a curriculum that draws heavily on the Reggio Emilia Approach, an educational approach to early years learning and care that is internationally recognized as best practice.

At Buggles Atwell we strive to provide children with a centre that is engaging, welcoming, safe and trusted and as such our environments play a crucial role. Indoors the environment is spacious and well-resourced allowing for clear supervision as children participate in experiences and opportunities that enhance their learning and development.

Considered the first teacher, well thought out environments assists us Educators in providing opportunities for learning, exploration and investigation. Our outdoor environment has rolling grassed hills, spaces to explore and connect with nature, a lazy river bed with a water pump, vegetable gardens and living vegetation, small worlds to provoke imagination and wonder and a space for an aviary.

Our families are a welcomed partner to the service we provide at Buggles Atwell and educators assist families to become involved in the daily routines and rituals of each child. We value and respect the important role that families play in the children’s lives. We encourage and welcome families to participate in decisions and feedback and any suggestions given are valued by us all at Atwell.

Our educators hold qualifications from Certificate III and Diploma in Children’s Services through to BA level Early Childhood Qualifications as well as speaking many languages. Our Educators are professional practitioners and observe closely, listen to children carefully and give value to their ideas and then create strategies to build on their interests.
