being3 Burwood is a beautiful 48 place centre set on a large block with a huge natural outdoor play space. The centre is deliberately small in its capacity, as we believe in making special connections with everyone and creating a small community of Education, Care and support for the children, families and Educators.
‘Deliberately Small; Deliberately special’
Being3 Burwood has 3 rooms: Nursery, 3-4 year olds and 4-5 year olds. We are open from 7.30am – 6pm and provide nutritious meals based around seasonal vegetables and fruits. Our staffing is above the regulated ratios and all staff are qualified, with a range of experience and cultural backgrounds.
We provide a funded 4 year old kindergarten program
Being3 is owned and operated by a Kindergarten teacher who has enjoyed a career of ensuring that children in her care receive high quality education that allows each child to develop at their own pace in an environment that is rich in opportunity.
Lisa, the Centre director, works closely with the owner to ensure that the daily program and curriculum design for all ages captures the interests and provides intentional learning for each age group to challenge and foster their own curiosity.
Lisa has been an Early Childhood Teacher for 15 years and the Director of being3 Burwood for the past 5 years. She has a very warm and caring approach to her leadership and in the relationships she develops with each child and family.
Play. Grow. Learn.
Play is the essential tool through which children engage all of their senses and develop a holistic understanding of the world around them. Play engages the whole child and is the most effective way that all children learn. Play experiences always have an intentional educational purpose and our displayed curriculum helps to make the links to learning for our families.
Through play children grow – physically in strength and coordination, cognitively in knowledge and understanding, questioning and finding answers, socially children begin to spread their wings and engage confidently with others while developing skills in conversation and their increasing vocabulary is practiced in a variety of social situations. Children explore a range of emotions and grow in their understanding of themselves and those around them.
Learning comes from the opportunity to experience and engage with materials, equipment, thoughts and ideas in meaningful ways that present age appropriate concepts to children. Learning is supported by Educators that have a deep understanding of each child and their strengths, abilities and needs. Learning happens when children play.
These in combination are the essence of being3 Burwood
We offer a full day educational program that incorporates a Literacy and Numeracy program. Children engage daily in activities that support literacy skills in phonics and letter name through the Jolly Phonics program and enjoy a range of specific numeracy experiences that incorporate mathematical language and concepts.
being3 Burwood is a very well resourced and beautifully presented centre where caring qualified staff support the learning of every child, every day.
being3 – where play is valued and learning matters
