Welcome to our Wavell Heights kindergarten and childcare centre, based on Montessori principles

In our childcare classrooms, you will see children right from birth working independently to develop practical life skills. These experiences develop and extend independence, concentration, willpower and persistence, which aid children in becoming confident and involved learners and, later in life, contributing members of society. The child’s potential is only limited by the experiences with which they are provided.

Children move through sensitive periods on their journey of development. Each child’s journey of development is unique. At Building Futures Wavell Heights, we place trust in each individual child on this learning journey and provide a safe educational play environment. We support their individual growth by providing specifically designed equipment with varying levels of complexity. The variety of equipment and ease of access ensures every child can be a successful, capable and confident learner.

Social cohesion is enhanced by our mixed age groupings. These allow the older children to develop responsibility and confidence while providing opportunities for the younger children to learn from and aspire to further learning carried out with the older children in the same group.

We value each family and aim to provide the best early years learning framework for their children

Each family is unique and we, therefore, encourage our families to contribute to the program in a way that suits them. We endeavour to build strong relationships with our families as we believe this is a key component in the quality of early childhood education and care of all children. Through these relationships, we are able to understand each child and family at a deeper level enabling us to cater for and support each individual need.

We acknowledge the traditional owners of this land, the people of the Turrbal region. We recognise that diversity contributes to the richness of our society, and we endeavour to promote a greater understanding of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander ways of knowing and being and respect the histories, cultures, languages, traditions, child-rearing practices and lifestyle choices of the local community.

We provide day care while ensuring that each child’s needs are understood and met at the deepest level

Our staff at our Wavell Heights daycare centre are on a continual path of professional development and commit extra time to studying the philosophy and theory behind Montessori. Our approved kindergarten program adheres to the National Quality Framework. We are a close family of educators who utilise each other’s strengths and weaknesses to professionally reflect upon our work and the children’s progress and learning to ensure growth in ourselves and quality outcomes for all children. We understand the pressures placed on families in our current busy society, we strive to relieve some of these pressures for you and your child by forming trusting relationships through strong communication and personal interactions.

The Building Futures Montessori kindergarten program provides a childcare environment that becomes a home away from home for our children and families. Our environments are constructed with natural materials such as wood, woven baskets, glass, fabrics and porcelain, offering children a familiar home. Each environment is a little community kindergarten that the children have ownership of and are responsible for; the children are encouraged to show respect for others by tidying up when finished and helping to keep equipment and furniture clean and ready for the next use.
