MEET OUR SERVICE MANAGER
Hello, my name is Tracey Gauci, I have been working in the early education sector for over 17 years.
My experience comes from working in most positions in early education and early intervention. I started my early education journey as a trainee in a small rural town in QLD almost 18 years ago.
I have a passion and drive for educating young children. I feel strongly about mentoring and leading staff to be the best professionals they can be. I believe with nurturing and supporting staff they will become successful educators, with this support I feel the educators can then support and nurture young children to become the best they can be.
I am a mum to 3 children, so I have an understanding of what parents expect from their educators. I navigated the early education sector looking for care that was right for my own children, I know the importance of respectful relationships.
I look forward to working alongside the team here at Oakvale to provide a professional, high quality education and care for you and your family.
TAILORED LEARNING AND CURRICULUM FOR EACH AGE GROUP
We believe that the value of play is of utmost importance to children as it is their way of learning about their world. While children play they are able to experiement with new ideas, test theories and their understanding of concepts, express their creative ability, release their emotions and share their feelings. While engaging in play children are developing across all domains and creating the building blocks for their future.
We partner with you to provide a safe, quality, family-centred learning environment where every child is respected and nurtured. We continually develop our skills and explore new ways to enrich your child’s early learning experience.
Indoor and outdoor play based experiences are an integral part of our program. Educators plan a diverse range of experiences to create opportunities for your child in both structured and spontaneous play.
Our programs are inspired by the wisdom and teachings of early childhood theorists and the Early Years Learning Framework (EYLF), and aim to develop children’s emotional, social and cognitive intelligence.
The Kindergarten curriculum continues to emphasise play based learning, however offers additional intentional learning times where the focus is on literacy and numeracy, socialisation, self-regulation and independence.
