About Tree of Life Early Learning School - Willoughby

Tree of Life Early Learning School is a private long daycare centre located in Willoughby, on the leafy Lower North Shore.  We provide a warm, homely, inclusive environment where children are encouraged to create, explore, discover and develop their skills at their own pace. Our dedicated educators support children’s individual interests and value input from family, educator and community interactions. To encourage a sense of belonging, we provide a mixed age setting and separate for group times.

Our program is guided by the Early Years Learning Framework (EYLF). We take a holistic view of your child and incorporate this to build their self-identity, relationships, health and wellbeing, knowledge and communication skills. At our child care centre, we believe that the foundations laid in the early childhood years are crucial to their being, belonging and becoming. We have developed educationally appropriate programs that support the EYLF, while acknowledging the importance of learning through play. Our method of play-based learning and interest-based activities helps children to:

  • develop their capabilities
  • builds on their needs
  • challenges their strengths

Our educators work collaboratively.  We share knowledge and expertise to determine the extent to which all children are progressing toward realising their learning outcomes and if not, what might be impeding their progress. Educators can reflect on pedagogy that will suit this context and the children. This is why play is one of the foundations of the Early Years Learning Framework. By using this Framework our educators guide your child’s play by carefully designing learning activities and stimulating indoor and outdoor learning environments. Using the Framework we observe your child’s learning to build on and plan the next steps.

Families are encouraged to become involved with the Centre and we encourage a positive and strong link between home and Tree of Life Early Learning School. Furthermore, we rely heavily on our parents to provide suggestions and feedback so we can continue to improve our service and standards. We keep in touch regularly with families through the use of photos and other documentation to show what their child is learning, how they are developing and what particular learning interests them.

Warm, friendly atmosphere for 2-5 year olds. Definitely feel very confident and self assured that my son will be happy and well cared for when we leave him there. The teachers are very caring, attentive and creative. He's learning so much and has made good friends at Sue's! Colleen & Michael Sam
