FAQ'S

About LEAD Childcare

LEAD Childcare is a family owned company with a genuine focus on creating home away from home environments for children.

With several services throughout Queensland LEAD Childcare recognises that consistency is important. Therefore each individual LEAD service has developed its own individual philosophy and culture.

Our Mission

At LEAD Childcare we believe in a holistic approach to Early Childhood Education and Care.

Our Vision

Our goals are to assist each child to make the smooth transition from home into the group care environment.

Our Philosophy

At LEAD Childcare we believe children learn through exploring their environments. We provide active and natural play spaces where educators assist children to engage, gain confidence and practice lifelong skills. Our educators build trusting, nurturing relationships with every child and their family. Through these relationships children learn acceptance, decision making and connectedness.

We use a blended approach to children’s learning including scaffolding intentional teaching practices and child initiated experiences. Every child is valued and their individuality and family background is taking into consideration to ensure they fully participate in the learning environment.

We acknowledge that living and working in groups requires children to be active and contribute to their community. At LEAD Childcare all children are provided with opportunities to make choices, decisions and be fully involved in matters that concern them.

We endeavour to create natural home like environments and model respect by supporting sustainable practices. We strive to educate both children and families about the world’s sacred natural resources.

We value the importance of keeping Australia’s history alive. We strive to embed Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander perspectives throughout our curriculum, environments and community.

We pride ourselves in programming for each child as an individual through the use of individual profiles and by fostering open and honest communication with families. Documentation of children’s learning occurs from the planned and unplanned experiences that foster each child’s learning and development.

The Pathway to LEAD

The vision for our organisation put simply, is to “help every child be the best they can be”. Our underlying practices are anchored by our mantra that LEAD Childcare is “a home away from home” and the security and love that this provides the children, ensures we can help every child to do more, learn more and be more. Our actions uphold our values that see children as competent and capable learners who are our leaders of tomorrows future.
