Our Philosophy

At Wiggles and Giggles long day care Centre we believe in providing a safe happy and nurturing environment in which children are able to develop socially, emotionally, intellectually and physically.

We focus on creating a natural environment while introducing children to concepts of sustainability where we can facilitate respect and care for the environment.

We encourage families to play an active role in their children’s development and learning while sharing their culture, language and experiences. We aim to have our families participate in the Centre’s events and decision making.

We believe that children should be treated with equality and their cultural diversity be embraced and acknowledged while encouraging them to accept diversity and learn from everyone around them.

We strive to work as a team, collaboratively with educators and staff members to enhance children’s learning and development, while regularly updating their skills and knowledge through formal and informal development.

We aim to provide a diverse program using the Early Years Learning Framework as a guide that focuses on both group and individual needs. Our program covers the areas of language, cognitive, social/emotional, fine motor and gross motor development as well as information technology.

    Our Approach

    We believe in building and forming a relationship with your child to help instill a sense of belonging to the Wiggles and Giggles community. It is important that we also work in partnership with you to ensure the best care possible.

    To achieve this we hope to make you feel welcomed, recognised, acknowledged and respected at all times by all our staff. We hope to ensure your child feels he/she is really cared for as opposed to being looked after. We feel it is important that we know your child and build a strong partnership in this journey.

    We strive to assist you in your role by making information about what is occurring available to you. Your views will always be welcome. We hope to ensure we appreciate each family and child as individuals and adapt to their varying needs.

    We believe in providing a safe, caring, social, stimulating learning environment which fosters creative teaching methods which focus on play and communication as the basis of our approach.

    Our programme is based upon the Early Years Learning Framework and its practices. We strive to have all our staff up to date in current early childhood practices.

    We welcome families from all cultures and ethnic backgrounds and respect diversity which in turn supports children to learn to respect the differences in cultures.

    Food and Nutrition

    We support the Munch and move programme which is a NSW Health initiative that supports the healthy development of children birth to 5 years by promoting physical activity, healthy eating and reduced small screen time (e.g. watching TV or DVDs, playing on computers and small hand-held games devices).

    Munch & Move offers training and resources to educators working in NSW early childhood education and care services. We currently have 3 staff members who have already attended these training sessions. The training aims to assist educators to implement a fun, play-based approach to supporting healthy eating and physical activity habits in young children. The Munch & Move program fits within the new National Quality Framework and the Early Years Learning Framework.

    Our Menu has been developed taking in to consideration factors such as the National Dietary Guidelines and companion resources including the Australian Guide to Healthy Eating, Healthy Eating for Children and Infant Feeding Guidelines and also diversity and different cultures of families attending the centre and recipes from the Munch and Move website.

      Physical Activity

      Physical activity is vital for a child’s development and lays the foundation for a healthy and active life. Early childhood services are ideally placed to foster the development of good physical activity habits early in life and to encourage families to engage in regular physical activity.

      Wiggles and Giggles, Wentworthville takes this seriously and we include lots of physical activity in our indoor and outdoor programmes. We offer a wide choice of play-based, physically active learning experiences that link to the children’s interests, abilities, identity and present knowledge. Our programme is made up of both structured (i.e. intentionally taught) physical activity and unstructured, spontaneous activity. In addition, as active role models, the educators encourage children to participate in physical activity. The Fundamental Movement Skills (FMS) are practiced on a daily basis during outdoor playtime.

      Ensuring each child receives the correct nutrition as per guidelines set down by the NSW health department, as well as enough physical activity throughout the day is of paramount importance at Wiggles and Giggles, Wentworthville. The children are also encouraged and reminded to drink water throughout the day.

      The centre has appointed three staff members to represent the three key areas of the Munch and Move programme such as a Munch and Move Leader, a FMS Leader and a Nutritional Leader.

      To achieve this we hope to make you feel welcomed, recognised, acknowledged and respected at all times by all our staff. We hope to ensure your child feels he/she is really cared for as opposed to being looked after. We feel it is important that we know your child and build a strong partnership in this journey.
