About Puss In Boots Early Childhood Learning Centre

Puss In Boots Early Childhood Learning Centre has been preparing children for their futures for 46 years.

We believe that childhood is a unique time of life, to be valued and enjoyed in its own right. We strive to maintain the integrity of childhood by creating an atmosphere and environment where children can simply be children. 

We are proudly owned and operated by Pamie and Tracy Randall. Pamie, Tracy and their team of dedicated and skilled educators aim to provide the highest quality of care and education to all children each and every day. Our passionate educators live within our community and partner with families and community groups to recognise and understand the shared values that underpin our community. Our aim for the children and families that walk through our door is to experience a sense of warmth and a homely feel throughout all our spaces.

Play is very important for children. Through play young children explore and learn to understand the world around them as they come to communicate, discover, imagine and create. When children play they are showing what they have learned and what they are trying to understand. This is why play is one of the foundations of the Early Years Learning Framework. Our play-based program does not mean that children just do what they like all day. In a play-based program there will be times when children come together as a group, listen when others are talking, follow the rules of group living and begin to take responsibility for their actions and their environment.

Children are offered choices that reflect their developmental stage. The choices are determined by the educators and are provided within limits of safety and within the group setting. The educators continually evaluate children’s play to discover what it is children are learning and to then help shape and extend this learning.

Our day is filled with opportunities to test our skills, build on our ability to communicate and interact with others, gain new knowledge and retest learned skills. It’s about the process of learning and never about a produced product, it’s about fun, it’s about being safe, nurtured and trusted.
