childcare centre outdoor area Avenues ELC Norman Park

Avenues Early Learning Centre Norman Park is a privately owned and operated childcare centre that caters to 157 children daily, aged between 6 weeks and 5 years. It has been designed to cater to the needs of children and their families with long day care facilities. Staff aim to ensure that children’s development will be encouraged, enhanced, and supported in an environment, which will cater to the individual needs of each child.

At Avenues Norman Park Early Learning Centre, all staff aim to provide a warm, caring atmosphere where each child and their family feels welcome and secure. This is an environment that has its own unique rich culture that recognises, embraces and values diversity. Their aim is to foster within each child an awareness and acceptance of others, developing respect for those who may be different from themselves in terms of lifestyle, abilities, and beliefs.

All programs are prepared with a strong emphasis on the fundamentals such as language, literacy and math, as well as the creative arts (art, music, and dance), development of life skills, problem-solving and investigation. The weekly programs are influenced by the Early Years Learning Framework with a strong emphasis on the Reggio Emilia approach. Each Program is prepared by qualified Early Childhood Educators. Each child’s individual needs and interests are considered whilst preparing the room’s program. The programs and experiences provided are appropriate to the child’s age and stage of development.

Children are offered a range of learning experiences both indoors and outdoors and need to use all their senses if they are to experience, discover and learn about their world. The programs take into consideration the multicultural backgrounds of the communities they are located in. The staff aim to break down and challenge traditional stereotypes, respect similarities and differences whilst promoting an atmosphere of inclusiveness. The centre’s educators are respectful of individual differences, interests, styles, and rates of learning. They encourage children’s independence and aim to increase their awareness of the community and the people around them.

Centre Philosophy

Avenues Early Learning Centre Norman Park provides a high-quality child care service for the benefit of the children and families who attend and is a dedicated facility to the community. Their aim is to provide a professional, personalised, friendly service, in a modern, first-class centre, designed specifically to enhance children’s learning and development.

For children –

  • Children have the right to an education that maximises their abilities and respects their family, cultural and other identities, and language.
  • Each child has unique qualities and abilities and they respect children’s individuality.
  • Children move through various stages of development and staff endeavour to cater to their needs accordingly.
  • Children have a right to play and be active participants in all matters affecting their lives.
  • Each child is a life-long learner and works towards being successful learners, confident and creative individuals, and active and informed citizens.

For learning –

  • Children’s learning is dynamic, complex and holistic. Physical, social, emotional, personal, spiritual, creative, cognitive and linguistic aspects of learning are all intricately interwoven and interrelated. 
  • The centre will provide an environment where children are able to explore and interact with materials in creative and interesting ways. Environments are safe, inclusive and free of bias, encouraging multiculturalism.
  • Play-based learning is invaluable to a child’s development and staff will actively interact and engage in children’s play to further provoke ideas, encourage problem-solving and help children express their knowledge through projects. Play is a context for learning through which a child can organise and make sense of social worlds, as they engage with people, objects and representations.
  • Children’s ideas and thoughts are valued and extended upon by the engagement in medium/long term projects. Projects are in-depth studies of concepts, ideas and interests which arise within the group. The project and adventure of learning may last a week or several weeks.
  • Projects will focus on the interests of the children, through community or family events or as the known interests of children and are designed to promote the development of the whole child.
  • Children are encouraged to work in collaborative group work, both small and large, and this is considered valuable and necessary to advance cognitive development. Children are encouraged to dialogue, critique, compare, negotiate and problem solve through group work.
  • Children’s play and learning will be documented and used to plan effectively for their current and future learning. Assessment will include the gathering and analysing of information about what children know, can do and understand. This will be communicated and shared with families to reflect the ongoing partnership between family and the centre.

For families –

  • Families are viewed as partners, collaborators and advocates for their children. Staff recognise that they are the children’s first and most influential educators.
  • Parents and families should always be kept informed about their child’s progress and interests.
  • Encouraging parents and families to involve themselves in Centre happenings.
  • Staff work in co-operation with parents and families, sharing information and respecting the importance of their role.
  • Listening to parents and families’ concerns and suggestions and acting on them appropriately.
  • Providing a service to parents and families that assists them in quality of life for their children and themselves.

For educators –

  • Educators bring a vast amount of professional judgements, in which they weave together their professional knowledge and skills, knowledge of children, families and community, as well as personal styles and past experiences. In conjunction, they bring forth creativity and intuition to demonstrate flexibility to suit the time, place, and context of learning.
  • Educators work to inspire, mentor, and facilitate the learning process by carefully listening, observing, and documenting children’s work.
  • Educators test children’s theories and ideas, help them to research, provide materials, resources and scaffold their learning to help them make sense of the world around them.
  • To document children’s learning process through portfolios, photos, and other means.
  • As a group, staff must develop effective communication skills and act as a positive role model for each other.
  • Staff will undertake ongoing professional development to update their skills and knowledge to provide the highest quality care and education to children in their care.

For the community –

  • The great vastness of cultures within the community should be valued and respected and embraced as a resource to educate others.
  • Staff will provide experiences that reflect the diversity of the community
  • Staff will work together with other agencies and professionals in order to meet the needs of the children and their families.
  • The environment helps us learn. Staff will aim to encourage the services around them to collaborate in learning and share their knowledge within their service. As early childhood educators, they draw upon knowledge of the following documents which are used to inform our philosophy and practices: Early Years Learning Framework, Queensland Kindergarten Learning Guidelines, National Quality Standards, and Education and Care Services National Law and Regulations.

What parents are saying

We were very nervous to move our little one from one day care to another due to moving areas, however the transition between the two schools has been made so easy by the welcoming and friendly staff. My son settled in from the first day and gets excited each day when I ask him if he wants to go to his new school. This is a true reflection of the great staff at Avenues. I would highly recommend this day care!” – Kate

Thank you for the amazing service and care that you have brought to our family over the last 2 years. We could not recommend the Centre more.” – Bre

The centre and staff have been amazing, and I feel blessed to have had both my children attend.” – Loretta

Avenues Early Learning Center

Avenues Early Learning Centre

The Avenues Group of Centres is family owned and operated. We have been providing quality care and education since 2003. Each centre in the group has its own unique character and offers services that reflect the local communities in which they are located. Our centres are licensed by the State Department of Education, Office for Early Childhood Education and Care and are accredited through an assessment rating system which is governed by the Australian Children’s Education and Care Quality Authority ( ACECQA). Some of our centres are yet to be rated in the new assessment rating system, however, have all received the highest rating under the previous governing body known as the National Childcare Accreditation Council. We believe it is important to promote trust and partnerships between children, staff and parents. Program planning is regarded as a shared process and members of each child’s family are encouraged to participate in their child’s program. The Avenues Group is committed to providing inclusive environments for children and families. Underpinning this value is our fundamental belief that each child is unique, bringing to the environment a unique set of capabilities and pre-dispositions. Our aim is to foster within each child awareness and acceptance of others so that they attach positive feelings to the diversity of people. Source: This is an extract from the company's own website.

Our son started as a 5 month old and we watched him flourish with the support of this centre. The care, the trust, the effort, the happiness, the development, the fun, the love and the memories make this place incredible.Sean Taylor

My family is so happy with the services provided at Avenues at Carina. My 2 children aged 3.5 and 1.5 years old attend. Vicky Arthur, Director of the Centre is amazing. Rather than sit in her office, she is always there greeting the parents and is often with the kids in the playground or in the room ensuring that all is ok. Her personal level of care and love for those kids at that centre (and she has many to manage) is incredible. She always knows what is going on at all times and there is nothing that is too much. They are very accommodating and the standard of care that they afford to my kids to ensure that they are happy and comfortable is really comforting. Vicki and her team are incredibly welcoming and they above and beyond to ensure that the kids are happy and included in all activities. There are also many opportunities for parents to join in on activities with the kids which is really rewarding particularly as a busy mum. Her and her team of very experienced carers apply a personalised approach to ensuring the care fits for each child. The staff at the centre are involved and very loving towards the children, they really care and nurture the development and tell me about how each of my children are going. I'm actually looking forward to going back to work as I know the care afforded to my youngest (who is not yet enrolled but will be shortly) will be second to none! I would absolutely recommend Avenues at Carina as it is under the direction of Vicki because the level of care that I have experienced is really comforting. Thank you to everyone there who have a really important job of looking after and nurturing my children who I love dearly.Natalia Wuth
