Robertson Community Preschool
From our Director Jenine Callaghan
I believe all children have the right to quality early education which is supported by a happy, safe and healthy environment. This environment is driven by the children’s strengths and interests and delivered by knowledgeable and caring educators.
I support the fundamental knowledge that families are the child’s first educator. The educators at Robertson Community Preschool, with my leadership, work together and partner with the families to enrich and develop each child to their fullest potential. This service has a strong community feel as we are starting to see generations of families enrol.
I have a strong belief in empowering children to speak out on environmental issues which will affect their world in the future.
All program delivery has high relevance to protecting the child and giving them strategies which will support the belief that “we all have the right to be safe all the time”.
What Parents are Saying About Robertson Community Preschool
“Robertson preschool has the most professional, best quality and kindest staff. My children have never been happier going to school!”
“My son is the happiest and most content he’s ever been. Very happy with BFS Robertson!”
“I feel confident leaving my son in everyone of the girls hands. The educators are always happy and friendly, they’re great at making everyone feel welcome and valued. My son actually enjoys going to care now, this wasn’t the case before this centre.“
“The educators at Robertson Big Fat Smile in Robertson NSW are the best we have ever experienced (and we’ve had children at 3 different day care centres). The attention and care they give to each student is tremendous. My child runs in each day with a huge smile and leaves in the afternoon with an even bigger one. I can’t thank or praise them enough.”
Robertson Community Preschool is situated on Gundungurra Country. We play and learn on this beautiful land.
We live and breathe the values of the organisation: Safety, Leadership, Integrity, Inclusion, Child-centric and Collaboration.
The educators provide programs which are child lead and play based.
We acknowledge and respect children arrive with prior knowledge and skills gained from their families and wider community .We continue in partnership with families and communities to build on this.
At Robertson Community Preschool we place emphasis on listening too and responding to the child’s voice. Their voice can be seen in all areas of the program. The children’s rights are managed for best outcomes which can extend on their needs and interests.
