Each child is driven by a natural desire to explore, experience and discover all the wonders of the world around them. This inbuilt drive is intrinsic to the growth and development of young children and plays an important role in early education.
Sean Scanlon, the CEO of the Diocese of Maitland-Newcastle, has announced that the Diocese is in the process of buying the centre at Raymond Terrace which comprises a pre-school and an early education facility.
St Nicholas Early Education’s open day - held last Friday - was a staggering success.
Building a sense of community in each child is an important part of early education. At St Nick’s, we work to develop community engagement by embarking on excursions out into the surrounding neighborhood, inviting local community members to visit our centres and supporting local initiatives such as the recent drought appeal.
Each St Nick’s centre is woven into the local community and each centre plays an important role in building bright futures and creating positive outcomes for the children we teach and care for each day.
The children of Mowane Room at St Nick's at Newcastle West attended the NAIDOC Week community day held at Newcastle foreshore. NAIDOC Week celebrations are held across Australia each July to celebrate the history, culture and achievements of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. NAIDOC is celebrated not only in Indigenous communities, but by Australians from all walks of life.
