Let your child’s learning story begin with us
I am so excited to be working alongside the Roma Street Team and Families.
MEET OUR SERVICE MANAGER
My name is Katrina Stone and I am so excited to say I am the service manager at Story House Early Learning at Roma Street.
I have worked in the child care industry for the past 13 years and to this day absolutely love what I do for children and their families. I hold my diploma in children service and currently furthering my study in business and leadership.
My experiences have involved working all over Qld on properties teaching and looking after children, creating remote area play groups, working in rooms with children and leading and mentoring a service.
I believe each and every child has the potential to bring something unique and amazing to the world. My goal is to help children to develop their potential by believing in them as capable individuals. I love to help children in discovering who they are, so they can express their own ideas and opinions. I see the world being a place where people learn to respect, accept and embrace the differences between all individuals.
A child’s learning environment should be caring, safe, supports risk taking and invites a sharing of ideas. Children need to have positive reinforcements, positive routine and made to feel safe, secure, and trusted in their learning environments. By allowing this I am giving them the tools to become successful in life, to believe in themselves and to learn to love themselves.
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.
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.
