Early Childhood Community Wellness Program

The aim of this program is specifically designed to support the early childhood community (educators, families and children) with education to be self-aware, and empowerment to create positive change to improve the wellbeing outcomes for all members of our community.

 

We understand the challenges of working in a childcare environment. This Early Childhood Community Wellness program provides early childhood services the educational resources to empower our educators in taking responsibility for maintaining and improving their well-being, both individually and collectively as a team. This translates into their ability to fulfill and excel in their roles as educators and carers for young children, providing them with a resilient and positive start to life.

The program also provides resources to make positive changes on optimising the well-being of children and families.

 

Well-being for parents is paramount for the principle commitment of raising healthy and positive children and their contribution to our community.

 

Well-being for educators is essential for a healthy, energised, engaged and positive workforce.

 

Well-being for children plays a significant role in enabling the feelings of safe, secure and connectedness and enhances their optimal growth and development.

Educators play a pivotal role within a childcare service. A strong sense of well-being provides educators with a sense of belonging, value and purpose to deliver the important work they do with children, families and colleagues. Positive well-being also enables educators with the ability to deal with the many challenges that are faced each day.

When educators have a strong sense of well-being they are better equipped to:

  • Be responsive to every child’s needs
