At Australian International Nursery (AIN), we recognise that it is in the early years of development that children form who they are as individuals, the foundation on which children base the rest of their lives on. Children are full of potential, confident and capable of building their own theories.
I believe that respect for each child and their family is paramount and is expressed through listening, observing, and interacting and having daily communication with families. I recognise that the family is the child’s first and most important teacher. Parents are viewed as partners (extension of our family), collaborators, and advocates for their children. I involve and invite parents into every aspect of our Early Years Learning Framework from Australia, which our curriculum is based on.
I embrace cultural diversity, respecting family’s diverse values, beliefs, cultural backgrounds, traditions, life experiences and knowledge. Families are encouraged to share their culture, language and experiences with Educators and staff.
I recognise and value the relationships children have with me and our AIN educators. The Employment of qualified specialist who are passionate and resourceful is essential to providing learning environments that are inclusive and respectful to all. The Educators I employ are seen as
role models who have their own personal philosophies and ideas, supporting each individual child, and providing the best possible outcomes for children.
My purpose in life is as a Manager in this Nursery Setting is to help children develop a sense of Being, Becoming and Belonging, by creating an environment where they can build connections with peers, staff, community and their natural environment.
I absolutely value all staff and respect the contributions they make to create a cohesive team. I recognise the responsibility of ensuring and maintaining current professional development and workplace policies and procedures.
AIN plans for children’s learning around their interests and their own specific needs, guided by Both UAE Quality Standards as set out by Ministry of Social Affairs and Australian National Quality Standards, the Early Years Learning Framework.
