Atlantis Early Learning
The Reggio Emilia Philosophy is an innovative and inspiring approach to early childhood education, which values the child as strong, capable and resilient; rich with wonder and knowledge. The Philosophy rides on the coattails of the innate curiosity of children and aims to assist them with understanding their world and who they are in it.
The Child - The Reggio Emilia philosophy values the child as central to their own learning, not simply an empty vessel waiting to be filled with knowledge. Children are able to pursue their own interests and revisit and build upon ideas at their own pace. You may have heard of something called the ‘100 languages of children’. This concept recognises that children have multiple ways of thinking, playing, exploring, speaking and doing. The Reggio Emilia approach encourages children to use every tool they have to express themselves.
The Environment - A Reggio-inspired environment, often referred to as ‘the third teacher’, is one that is open and free-flowing. It enables uninterrupted exploration, play and learning. Outdoor spaces are valued just as highly as formal classrooms, and the design of the space should allow children to move freely between the two. In addition, it is important that children have free access to stimulating resources, as they cannot be the owner of their learning journey without this.
The Teacher - Teachers are encouraged to observe children rather than to direct them. It is important that children are allowed to experiment in their own way, make mistakes and find new solutions. The role of the teacher is to gently move students towards areas of interest to them, and this can only be done through careful observation carried out over time.
Hello families, I’m Hollie, your Manager for Atlantis Vertex Estate. I have worked in the Early Childhood Education and Care industry for over 6 years, during this time I have gained a wealth of knowledge and experience and worked with many wonderful families. I am currently studying a Bachelor of Education which is providing me with an expensive skill set and deepening my knowledge and understanding of the amazing industry in which I work.
My favourite part of working in childcare, is listening to the stories children tell and getting their perspectives on life, there is not a day that goes by without laughter! I love building strong relationships with the children in my care and with their families, it is so important to have that bond with them so that the children feel safe and while at our centre. I see these children as my own (work) family and want nothing more than to see them thrive and grow in life.
It is always a pleasure to walk through the door in the mornings and be greeted by so many beautiful smiles, kind words and warm hugs. I love to explore the world through the children’s eyes and I enjoy creating meaningful and engaging learning activities which enable to the children to learn through play and discovery. I particularly enjoy Sensory experiences and I am an advocate for sustainability.
I look forward to meeting you and hopefully I get to be a part of your child’s life.
