Arkie Education

Why Arkie

Why Arkie?

Arkie embodies a sense of adventure, respect, kindness, inclusion and education, all of which are critical elements and attributes essential to raising the next generation of changemakers.

 

The Arkie Way

The Arkie way of teaching will continually evolve; our guiding principle of continuous improvement imposes this. We look to multiple perspectives and theories on children’s learning and development and apply those that resonate with our values.

As educators, we strive to instill a love of learning in every child and cherish the moments when we slow down and witness the natural wonder of the world side-by-side with our children.

We are inspired to grow meaningful, positive connections with each child and family and to build experiences that foster curiosity, discovery and creativity.

Every opportunity is taken to support each child’s physical, social, emotional, creative, cognitive and linguistic development in collaboration with families.

The greatest gifts we can give our children are the roots of responsibility and the wings of independence

What does a day at Arkie look like?

Flexibility and fun are key drivers of what each day may look like!  We hold high expectations for our children and believe all children have the capacity to succeed given the right encouragement and environment.

As educators we recognise our role in a partnership with families working together to support each child’s education.  Feedback from parents and families is welcomed and sought after.  Our community is made up of people from diverse backgrounds and we strive to create a learning environment that is respectful and welcoming to all.
