At Camelia Avenue Childcare Centre we take pride in our environment. Part of our philosophy and centre values includes the provision of natural materials for the children to explore.
We provide a mix of natural and man-made resources in both our indoor and outdoor environments and we encourage the children to contribute to the development of their surroundings. Their input is highly regarded; after all they spend the most time engaging in the environments at the centre.
We teach the children to have respect for their environment. This concept ranges from the simple things such as packing away and responsibility for their belongings, to more topical issues such as our footprint on the global environment.
The provision of learning experiences for groups and individuals is facilitated through the set-up of our indoor and outdoor environments.
There are always spaces for large groups to explore activities together and, equally, spaces where children can have some time alone or with a small group of their peers.
