About us

A COMMUNITY RUN, PLAY-BASED CENTRE FOR CHILDREN AND FAMILIES TO BELONG AND GROW

Fremantle Early Learning Centre (formerly International Early Learning Centre) is a Community Based, Not for Profit Childcare Centre for children aged between 0 and 5 years old. We provide a friendly, positive environment for children to experience play-based learning that is engaging, stimulating, challenging and spontaneous whilst having fun interacting with other children and our dedicated staff.

The Centre has an active Management Committee who in conjunction with the Director and a passionate team of educators are responsible for the operation of the centre. The Management Committee is predominantly made up of parents whose children attend the centre. As a not-for-profit all profits are reinvested back into the centre and into enhancing the children’s learning experience.

Our Philosophy

OUR VALUES AND BELIEFS
We respect each child and encourage effective communication to help them establish a feeling of self worth, inner happiness and sense of belonging. We allow all children the freedom to develop at their own personal level taking into consideration all cultures and individual needs, encouraging independence, creativity and initiative. We encourage an environment of non-bias by accepting and respecting differences, rejoicing diversity, delighting in similarities and minimising prejudice and stereotypes.
We develop tolerance and empathy for others with an understanding of the reality of the world around them. We use the Early Years Learning Framework to allow children’s needs to be met and supported in play based learning. We give the children room to explore within a secure, loving and stimulating environment. We value the role of families and actively encourage their involvement and participation in the children’s programs and in the management of the Centre.

Curriculum

WHAT WE DO

The aim of the Curriculum is to enrich children’s learning in this vital period of their development, the early years!

Our Curriculum is built upon the Early Years Learning Framework which describes the principles, practices and outcomes that support and enhance young children’s learning from birth to five years of age, as well as their transition to school.

We recognise families as the first and most influential educators and our curriculum has a strong emphasis upon children and family input. Educators implement stimulating, educational and fun experiences to meet children’s developmental needs.

At Fremantle Early Learning Centre we have a full time, Educational Leader who supports and mentors the Educators on the Curriculum. The Centre has a specific emphasis and passion for learning through play in the early years. We have a wonderful nature playground which promotes children’s sense of agency and discovery. The outdoor area also includes our Animal Friends Project in which children partake in nurturing, feeding and enjoying our rescued/unwanted animals in our purpose built enclosure.

The 5 Early Years Learning Framework Learning Outcomes are:
