We practice the primary care philosophy within our nursery and child care.
When working with primary care, children are assigned to a teacher who is responsible for the child’s care moments e.g. Nappy Changing, Sleep Time, Bottle Feeding. This ensures the child will build a strong attachment with their teacher which helps them to branch out and continue to make relationships with others.
Primary care provides consistency for children so they can anticipate who will be helping them throughout their day.
The responsibility of the primary care teacher is for most of the things, most of the time, but it is not exclusive.
With primary care giving at The Enchanted Garden we believe in flexibility. All the teachers get to know the children in their own way. When the primary care teacher can’t be available for the child another teacher will step in. With open communication the nursery teaching team work together in the best interests of the children.See our Nursery Curriculum >>
