We provide children with the opportunity to be curious, wonder, learn, explore, take managed risks, get dirty, play, have fun and most importantly, just be.
The Wonder behind our Educators
Our Educators are committed to providing high-quality learning environments combined with contemporary approaches in early childhood. At Wonderschool, we focus on building relationships.
Our team and working values are constructed upon the important foundations of customer service, compassion, knowledge, understanding and professionalism.
We believe that all children (and Educators) are deserving of quality environments, meaningful practices, safe classrooms and ample opportunities for developing and learning. Childhood is an essential part of life. It’s essential that those who build our Wonder-world, establish a setting free from bias and one that meets individual children’s needs.
We understand the challenges that being an Educator can bring. We follow an ethos of “you can’t stop the waves, you can only learn to surf them,” and will always provide a supportive and respectful team environment to uphold our staff.
