Your Family

Reflecting our vision to 'connect family, faith and education', we recognise families as providing a child's first and ongoing experience of love, faith and learning, and therefore nurture the partnership between families, the community and learning. 

At Nazareth Catholic Community, we recognise that families are the first educators, and you share with us the responsibility for children's development, learning and wellbeing.

Our Educators

Our rooms are staffed with University qualified Early Childhood Education teachers, and educators with a Diploma and/or Certificate III in Early Years Education and Care. 

Our educators work alongside children as they grow so that they develop skills and emotional capacity that will enable them to flourish 

We provide a supportive, caring work environment that acknowledges and utilises personal and professional skills and talents. Professional learning is built into the working week and continual learning and development is expected.

Flinders University

We have a unique and valuable professional partnership with Flinders University through their Occupational Therapy, Physiotherapy, Dietetics & Nutrition and Speech Pathology programs. This provides for both the centre and families expert observations, assessment and direction for not only early intervention, but proactive development. Through this partnership we are able to develop strategies to support children's overall development. 

 

Parent Voice

This is a formal parent advisory committee for the Centre. 

  • The role of the committee is an advisory committee for parents at the centre.
  • They represent the centre and families
  • It is an opportunity to see what is ahead / make future plans.
