Our Philosophy

Birches Early Learning Centre has a commitment to “raising the bar” in early education and the team at Birches ELC work tirelessly to deliver exceptional quality care and education for every child, every day. Our educational philosophies are under-pinned by the widely respected Reggio Emilia approach to learning which supports enquiry and play-based learning experiences in natural and responsive environments. Our learning programs are designed to be emergent in nature and, through reflective practices, are guided by the children’s interests and needs.

Our team understand the responsibility that comes with the role of an educator and are committed to ensuring that every child not only enjoys their time with us, but has been exposed to every available developmental and learning opportunity.

Our team approach ensures the individual and collective needs of the children are met in a harmonious and friendly environment. By maintaining a consistent and professional team of staff, we facilitate continuity and familiarity for the children and their families.

Birches is a great environment to support the academic and personal development of every child in its care. Staff are supportive, take time to listen and are just generally very welcoming and friendly which in turn makes the centre feel like a family. The centres outdoor space allows children the freedom to explore and discover new things and the chickens and rabbits allow children to learn how to care for and respect living things. I couldn’t recommend Birches more and I’m glad we chose them for our son.
A beautiful daycare with some country charm. From when we walked in the door with Brianna/Mini we’ve felt at peace knowing staff there have a high level of care and work well as a team and with us parents. As a parent of two Special Needs children we took the step to change daycares and we should of done it sooner. We love sending Bri there and not only are the staff dedicated to the kids but they also care about the families. We haven’t had to worry once about Brianna or how she’s coping. The staff have her special needs in the front of their mind and we’ve complete trust and faith in Judy and her team. Couldn’t recommend them enough.
