Alexandra Children's Centre
"... Children desire to acquire knowledge, have much capacity for curiosity and amazement, and yearn to create relationships with others ... "
Alexandra Children's Centre focuses on the importance of inter-relationships between the child, their peers, teachers, family and community. The teacher is not viewed as the source of all knowledge, but as a co-collaborator with the child, encouraging exploration of the child’s interests. Our role in providing childcare is viewed as just one component of a ‘global’ village that supports children, their families and the community to be happy and healthy in a child focused environment.
