Pedagogy in Practice

Pedagogy describes the ‘art of teaching’ and at Macquarie Hills Community Preschool we are fortunate to have professional, qualified, experienced, knowledgeable, intuitive, and passionate educators. Our team is committed to ensuring the preschool environment offers endless opportunities for quality teaching and learning.

Our pedagogy is the way we work with children. It includes what we do, how we do it and how we think about what we do. Our pedagogy is usually based on children, education and the families we work with. The Early Years Learning Framework encourages us to reflect on our pedagogy, to make sure that we have carefully thought through what we are doing. Recent training has helped our educators and administration staff reflect on all aspects of our service. Giving of their own time, our team had fun and enjoyed networking with other professional teams. Leadership, behaviour management, financial and management systems, cultural competence, STEM (science, technology, engineering and maths) are just some of the subjects we have recently attended researched and professional training on.

Implementing aspects of all we have learned is part of critical reflection aimed to ensure quality.
