Amity Early Learning Centre is committed to maintaining a bias-free environment where all children are afforded equal opportunities to learn and grow, and are welcomed and respected, and treated with dignity. We are committed to offering a service that meets the needs of all families in our community and strive to instill values of diversity within our students and staff, placing great value on the policy - ‘respect for all’.
We understand our responsibility to ensure positively towards diversity and difference- not only so that every child is included and not disadvantaged, but also so that they learn from an early age to value and respect diversity in society.
Amity Early Learning Centre aims to support the families of children who need additional support, ensuring that they have access to our centre and its facilities.
> We meet with parents to identify the level of support required by the child, and to assess if the centre can meet this level of support.
> We meet with other professionals involved with the family, for example Speech & Language, Physiotherapists etc., to identify how we can further support their efforts.
> We introduce members of staff to the child so they get to know each other. This is important to be able to build comfort with their surroundings.
> We identify an existing member of staff who can support the child’s needs and provide the level of support required.
> We also provide additional training to existing staff members to enable them to meet the needs of a child.
