Rosny Early Learning is a not for profit, community based service owned and operated by Clarence City Council.
The service vision is to provide a safe, happy, enriched, and sustainable minded environment which encircles children, families, service staff and our community.
The service strongly advocates the importance of play in the early education and care setting.
Through play, children develop a sense of the world around them. It is vital that they be given the opportunity to participate in unstructured play which allows trial and error exploration, reasonable risk, and the development of their own ideas.
Play allows children to complete tasks, it gives a sense of order to what they do, it allows a sense of personal accomplishment and gives children the pure joy of living.
Our learning environment is a welcoming space set in a natural bush style garden with a vegetable patch.
Our small size means that a real sense of belonging is achieved as children are able to build relationships with all educators and children in shared spaces.
Our service is purpose built with three age-based rooms, all are connected by shared spaces. This enables children to transition easily to the next room when it is time. Each room is defined with a Tasmanian animal-themed name.
- Tasmanian Pygmy Possums: Space for eight children, aged between 8 months – 2 years old, with two early childhood educators.
- Little Penguins: Space for 10 children aged between, 2 – 3 years old, with two early childhood educators.
- Superb Fairy Wrens: Space for up to 20 children, aged 3 – 5 years old, with two early childhood educators.
The service has two outdoor areas, both most recently renovated in 2020. The garden on Riawena Road (front garden) is our Seasonal Garden with lots of grass to play on, an orchard, vegetable garden beds, compost and our chickens who live in Cluckingham Palace, and is an integral part of the children’s learning and development at Rosny Early Learning.
The garden on Loinah Road (back garden) has been landscaped with native plants and grasses to create rooms of play for the children.
There is an abundance of stone paths and steps for the children to explore and challenge themselves on, as well as two craftsmen-built playhouses that continue to create a sense of wonder and foster imagination for the children.
There is a central area of soft fall with a large tepee structure and space for Educators to arrange equipment for gross motor skill development, and an enormous, shaded sandpit, a large area for bike riding and an undercover area to use when the weather is wet.
Our Curriculum is based on the Australian Early Years Learning Framework.
Our program is driven by children’s interests, strengths and needs and is a balance of intentional teaching by experienced staff and children’s emerging passions for learning.
Educators are respectful of children’s unique individuality, personality and ability, creating environments and programs that inspire and engage.
We believe that parents and families are the first teachers of children, so sharing the learning journey is vitally important to us.
We encourage and support family and community involvement, making connections to nurture and develop every child’s sense of self.
Our educators are all qualified or working towards qualifications in child care and early childhood education.
All our meals are prepared fresh each day and are well balanced and nutritious and can cater for all children’s specific dietary requirements.
Rosny Early Learning uses an online communication and programming app called Kinderloop to document each child’s progress, interests, and strengths.
This program enables us to share photos and comments from the day instantly with families. It also enables families to communicate with us regarding their child.
It is through this program that we can also communicate information about sleeps, eating and nappy changes for families to view.
Our Service objective is to provide education and care for children in a way that is responsive to their emotional, physical, developmental, and cultural needs whilst enabling families to pursue their vocational, educational, and professional interests.
Our service opened in 1988 and has an excellent reputation in the community as a provider of quality child care and education.
It is located in a quiet, convenient location with easy access to public transport and all day parking.
Our opening hours are 7:30am to 5:30pm Monday to Friday, with a closure between Christmas and New Year for which there is no charge.
You may be eligible for Child Care Subsidy which is a Government payment to help families who use approved and registered child care.
