Woodvale Staff

Our carers and teachers are early childhood professionals and are dedicated to the development of every child. They bring their own individual skills and experiences to the classroom enhancing their own personal teaching style.

Variations within classroom programs will occur as early learning personnel focus on the different needs and interests of each child with the uniqueness of each child being the focus of our learning environments.

Each centre has a clear set of goals based on a philosophy established from a sound knowledge of early childhood education theories and practices. These goals form the basis of each classroom’s program.
