Bachelor Of Early Childhood

Educational Leader Mentor

I have been the 4 Year Old Kinder teacher at CPELC for 11 years. I hold a Bachelor of Early Childhood Studies and Diploma of Children Services. I have worked in the early childhood sector for 25 years in various roles and am always continuously updating my knowledge and skills through Professional Development Seminars. My aim is to establish the foundations for each child's positive lifelong learning by nurturing children's holistic development whilst being a positive advocate for their rights; watching the children learn and develop in their own unique way, whilst also having fun!

Diploma In Education and Care

I am from China, living with my husband in Melbourne for about 9 years. I have a strong passion in teaching, and I have worked as a Diploma educator in different childcare settings for 7 years. I am currently studying my Bachelor of Early Childhood Education in Deakin University and have been enjoying my learning journey to become a qualified teacher. Living in one of the most liveable cities in the world, I love our cultural diversity, the foods and arts scenes, connecting with the beautiful nature and the different communities. In my teaching program I focus on promoting children’s social and emotional development through nature-based learning activities, sociocultural program, arts and dramatic play.

I am working across different rooms to help all the children and educators. I am looking forwards to working with all the CPELC families and educators for the best interests of each child.

Our Program

 

We view children as capable, competent co contributors and acknowledge them as active participants in learning. The curriculum will incorporate integrated units, projects, concepts, group/individual work, and hands-on learning; focusing on their individual and group needs, and diverse learning styles, development, culture, interests, ideas, strengths and abilities as we work together with families to prepare the children for school.
As well as participating in a weekly bush kinder program, multiple incursions and excursions; such as traffic school, emergency services visits, science works, the museum and various walking excursions within the nearby community.

‘Learning during early childhood proceeds from behavioural knowledge to symbolic or representational knowledge (Bruner 1983). For example, children learn to navigate their homes and other familiar settings long before they can understand the words left and right or read a map of the house. Developmentally appropriate programs provide opportunities for children to broaden and deepen their behavioural knowledge by providing a variety of firsthand experiences and by helping children acquire symbolic knowledge through representing their experiences in a variety of media, such as drawing, painting, construction of models, dramatic play, verbal and written descriptions.’ (Katz 1995).
