About Everlearn Preschool - Clovelly
Anyone who has visited an Everlearn campus will know our centres are not purely places that provide our children with the academic tools that they will need to take on their next big step into primary school. We also focus on the value and importance of human connection as paramount in the learning process. No matter how academically competent a child may be, no significant learning can occur without meaningful relationships between children and educators and having a sense of belonging and community.
We take great pride in the fact that our educators go above and beyond the call of duty, taking the time to build relationships with the children that they teach and the parents that they work with in helping them receive the very best early education and care.
The Early Years Learning Framework states "Children develop a sense of belonging when they feel accepted, develop attachments and trust those who care for them. When children feel safe, secure and supported they grow in confidence to explore and learn".
Children who are supported to understand themselves in this positive way experience a sense of belonging that nurtures the development of self-esteem. Self-esteem is critical to children’s capacity to develop positive images about their abilities, interests and personal future.
