Dewdrops Urban Kinder is a new and innovative kindergarten program, designed and developed my Dewdrops Early Learning kindergarten teachers.
Our children are surrounded by busy roads, large shopping areas, rich cultures, art, and so much more. Their lives are shaped by dynamic communities and fast-paced environments. Dewdrops Urban Kinder embraces this urban environment, and arms children with critical life-skills and behaviours, to navigate their way through an urban setting and prepare them for school.
Children will participate in specialised classroom activities, and in real-world experiences through excursions in our community.
Dewdrops Urban Kinder will run at Dewdrops Moreland throughout term 2, and we can’t wait to see how much the children learn. You can learn more about our kindergarten programs, here.
It’s been a big start to 2018 for Dewdrops Moreland with renovations and ratings.
The year started with a much-wanted renovation. Every room was made over, with new hard-wearing flooring, custom cabinetry and fresh coat of paint. The updates have created clean lines and open spaces that allow for diverse and flexible learning experiences, while still feeling comfortable cosy for quiet play and sleep times. The spaces are beautiful and bright, and the perfect place for all children to learn and play.
The changes have even extended into the outdoor spaces, with children collaborating, contributing and creating new and innovative additions to their play spaces. The outdoor areas are zoned for quiet play, robust active play and hands on learning. The veggie gardens are thriving, with lots of new planting over the last few weeks, and the new worms are settling in nicely. It’s been a fantastic time of change at the service and all of the educators and children are invigorated and inspired to learn and play even more.
On top of the wonderful and new aesthetic changes at Dewdrops Moreland, the Australian Children’s Education and Care Quality Authority (ACECQA) came along for another assessment and rating. As was expected Dewdrops Moreland did a wonderful job, achieving a Meeting National Quality Standard rating across all seven of the quality areas. You can learn more about ACECQA and the National Quality Standard, here.
The great rating is a testament of the hard work of Mattie (Director at Dewdrops Moreland) and all educators, teachers and staff at Dewdrops Moreland, who are passionate about early childhood education and care and strive to always be and do the best they can. Congratulations to the team at Dewdrops Moreland for a job well done.
