At Thurgoona Preschool we have qualified, experienced educators who demonstrate a dedication to working with the children at our preschool. Our educators are involved with the children, supporting their play and investigations as facilitators and co-learners.
Our educators demonstrate a passion for working in early childhood education and care and furthering their knowledge through attending in-servicing, relevant meetings and readings, to ensure that advances in research-based evidence and new understandings gained in early childhood practices continue to inform and improve their performance as educators.
Our preschool committee are committed in supporting staff development by offering all staff training opportunities which foster ongoing professional development and excellence.
In each room there is an Early Childhood Teacher (Bachelor of Education Early Childhood Qualified) who works in partnership with our Educators (Diploma Qualified and Certificate III Qualified). There is a minimum ratio in each room of one adult for every ten children. We have an additional educator working in the room as required if funding is provided to support a child with additional needs.
