Most parents can probably relate to the nervous feeling of leaving their precious newborn with another person for the first time. Understandably, there’s a huge amount of trust involved for the parent to feel secure that their baby is being looked after by someone who will keep them completely and utterly safe. This need for complete trust in caregivers is, of course, sought throughout a child’s life and incredibly important in any setting, including a playschool.
Caregiving is also so much more than just babysitting. It’s about communication, mentoring, role modelling, training, experience, strategy and qualifications. Caregivers play an enormous role in a child’s general happiness, emotional and physical wellbeing, and development. That’s why we are incredibly vigilant with our recruitment process to ensure only the very best people are employed at Wild.Kind. Compassionate Playschool.
We’re proud of our team of exceptional caregivers and their roles in keeping children safe, as well as positively encouraging them to be the best versions of themselves. One of the main ways your child will learn about social interactions is by example, and we therefore believe in being the best role models we can for them. Children are not just learning what we teach them, but are also watching everything we do.
We believe that fulfilled child is one that finds something he/she loves to do, is generous, empathetic and compassionate, committed to respect the world and its inhabitants, shows creativity, grit and the ability to collaborate and can take constructive criticism. To help aid their development, we instill a number of strategies, which include:
– Sharing and promoting kind interaction with each other, with nature and all other inhabitants of this earth, whether two-, four- or even multi-legged
– Encouraging children to develop inquisitively and courageously through life, all in harmony with nature and the diversity it has to offer
– Encouraging children to follow their interests, because we believe that fulfilled child is one that finds something he/she loves to do
– Leading by example with respect, care and compassion for ourselves and each other.
Our caregivers are passionate about their work and honour their roles as positive influencers on children, helping them to develop into who they are and eventually becoming active participants in our communities.
