The first five years of a child’s life are incredibly important. The level of nurturing a child receives during this time will have lifelong repercussions – and yet strangely, many of the day care options currently available in Australia do not provide much in the way of education or creative engagement.
Why Greenwood is different
Greenwood’s philosophy as a childcare provider is to raise the bar to a level never previously seen before in this country. We believe that children should be entitled to a standard of care that is not only warm, caring and safe – but also stimulating, fun, and educational.
Your child’s needs are at the heart of everything we do
Rather than forcing kids to adapt to an adult world, Greenwood centres are designed from the point of view of a child. We are currently building a number of unique centres around NSW that are unlike anything you will have seen before.
Each Greenwood centre will feature a huge play area – made from soft and organic materials, and filled with exciting play equipment for children to explore. When you first walk in, the first thing you will notice is a large green ‘jumping pillow’ – which is like a trampoline, except far safer:
The natural world has been brought into our designs as much as possible – with natural light and real plants incorporated into the centres to help our kids forge a connection to the natural environment.
A head start to a lifetime of learning
The Greenwood curriculum has a focus on five key learning outcomes:
• Identity: children are encouraged to express their individual personalities
• Wellbeing: children are made to feel safe and secure at all times
• Confidence: children are taught how to actively involve themselves in their learning
• Communication: children learn effective communication skills for a lifetime of success
• Connectedness: children are encouraged to connect with and contribute to the world around them
Just as each individual bee in a hive contributes to the shape of honeycomb, every child at Greenwood is able to contribute to the way that their learning is structured. This is an empowering process that allows the child to use initiative, plan, reflect, and solve problems.
In addition to basic numeracy and literacy skills, Greenwood also focuses on sports, art, wellbeing, languages and music. Whatever your child’s passion, Greenwood will give them everything they need to explore and develop their interests and talents.
It’s time to revaluate Australia’s approach to childcare
The moment you and your child walk through the doors at Greenwood, your perception of childcare will change forever.
We feel that early education should be meaningful and stimulating, and it’s our aim to equip your child with the tools they need to be successful in every aspect of their lives.
Greenwood will bring a much-needed breath of fresh air to the Australian childcare landscape.
