About Us – Educators
The staff at Karalta Cottage Kindergarten are equally as dedicated to providing your child with the best of care, and are committed to providing care and support to both children and their families. All of our educators have been carefully selected on the grounds of experience, qualifications and individual talents.
At Karalta Cottage Kindergarten we work over and above the staff to child ratio as set by the Education and Care Services National Regulations. This ensures a higher level of one on one interactions with your child and supervision.
Our educational programs are based on the EYLF (Early Years Learning Framework). The programs are based on the interests of your child and respects the fundamental importance of play. Our educational program is overseen by our Early Childhood teacher.
Karalta Cottage Kindergarten is committed to continuous improvement in all seven areas of the National Quality Framework, and regularly reflects and discusses all aspects of our service delivery. These reflections and actions are reflected in our Quality Improvement Plan which is available for families to view at the centre. We seek and encourage families to have input into the plan.
