About Us

Elite Childcare Educators work in partnership with Elite (the approved provider) to provide education and care services from within their own home or other approved venue. 

Our Educators welcome your family into their home, day and night, to strengthen the relationship between children, families, communities and society.

We not only create a stable and secure environment, but provide individual attention to strengthen your child’s social and emotional development.

We Believe

  • All families have strengths.
  • Children and their families are part of a community.
  • Families have the most influence on their children.
  • Parents have interests, roles and responsibilities in addition to their family responsibilities.
  • There are many ways for a family to be involved with their children’s care.
  • Families and Elite Childcare Professionals have something to offer each other.

Our Educational Philosphy

Educators and children create environments that foster curiosity and discovery through the use of open ended resources. Open ended resources and natural environments can be explored in unlimited imaginative ways that the child chooses, there is no 'wrong or 'right' way to play. This allows children to respond in their own unique and distinctive ways developing competent and involved learners.

A culture of enquiry based learning. The Elite Childcare philosophy is influenced by the theorists Froebel, Dewey, Montessori, Louv and Fromm.

The foundations of Elite Childcare practices are:

  • collaborating with children and families to record shared learning journeys.
  • children learn through play, exploring real-life situations and will be encouraged to experiment and think for themselves
  • children develop their own interests; and work in ways that match and challenge their understanding and appreciation of their world
  • children are supported to establish their understanding of unity and interconnectedness, by fostering relationships and social interactions within mixed age groups
  • emotional intelligence and resilience are developed by nurturing the instinctive bond between human beings and others living systems.
  • providing educational experiences are provided in indoor and outdoor home environments.
  • embracing the opportunity to learning from the world and its peoples.
