Our philosophy

We believe that childcare is an extension of the family unit. Each family is important and we
aim to support parents in the care and upbringing of their children in a happy and homely
atmosphere. Hundred Acre Wood ECD Centre has been running for 15 years with Shelley Schram as
principal. She is very active with a hands-on approach in all the classrooms. We are a family
orientated ECD centre and her door is always open to parents and all teachers.

We will provide a safe and nurtured environment in which to encourage, stimulate and
develop individual growth.

We believe that children should...
* Always feel safe, happy and comfortable
* Have opportunities to seek challenges as part of their exploration within a safe environment
* Be given the opportunity to experience a programme aimed at developing the child – physically,
* emotionally, imaginatively, socially and intellectually
* Have opportunities to express their feelings
* Have opportunities to be involved in activities that develop a positive self-concept and
* confidence in themselves
* Be able to grow in independence and respect the rights of others
* Develop an appreciation of the wider community through involvement of community, home
* and our ECD centre
* Be encouraged to be involved in the care of the environment
* Be taught to be loving, caring and to respect individual differences

Hundred Acre Wood ECD Centre achieves this philosophy by...
* Recognising that each child is an individual
* Providing a quality developmental programme within the context that learning and play should
* be fun
* Employing caring, appropriately qualified and experienced staff who can meet the varying
* needs of children
* Providing facilities of a high standard located within a healthy environment
* Ensuring that parents have the opportunity to discuss their children’s needs with staff
* Providing children with nutritional and inviting meals
