A passion to help children learn and achieve has been the key to success for Point Resolution Child Care in Dalkeith.
Starting life as an occasional child care centre 34 years ago, it became a full-time operation in 2012 and has earned an enviable reputation as a family-oriented, play-based child care and early learning centre that provides a safe, loving and nurturing atmosphere.
Operated by the City of Nedlands, the not-for-profit PRCC has been recognised for exceeding National Quality Standards with an educational curriculum that offers a stimulating and inclusive program.
An early childhood educator is on-site Monday to Friday with resources offering creativity, imaginative play and open-ended learning to encourage a mixed-age group of children to gain skills independently.
The early learning program features numeracy and literacy activities aligning with local schools, sensory exploration, self-expression and creative experiences and learning environments that enhance language, cognitive, physical and social skills.
PRCC Coordinator Romaine Ratnawibhushana said the most fulfilling aspect of her job was helping children under six years to grow into responsible, competent learners.
“I have dedicated my professional life to developing our most precious resources,” she said.
“By having patience, creativity and enthusiasm for children and meeting both their needs and the expectations of parents is the rewarding part of my job.
“It’s very gratifying to know the community trusts myself and my staff to give their children the fundamentals that will allow them to grow and progress.”
Nedlands Mayor Max Hipkins said PRCC was the perfect environment for children to discover their creativity, confidence and love of learning while receiving the best care and attention they need.
“Children aged up to six years are encouraged to develop their social, intellectual, physical and emotional skills through the Early Years Learning Framework – and the centre also offers pre-kindergarten and kindergarten programs,” he said.
“Encouraging social and emotional development is important when transitioning into kindergarten and PRCC’s programs help with their focus on preparing children for the demands of school life.
“This includes developing self-help skills, learning classroom routines and introducing early learning concepts.
“PRCC also builds on relationships with local schools to further develop ways of bridging the pathway from early learning to school.”
Enrolments for 2018 are now open – people are invited to tour the centre and learn more about the high-quality curriculum and early learning program on offer. For more details, call 9386 5835 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
