Mu ar deidhinn
Our teachers make Woodlands Long Day Care & Kindergarten the special place it is. We employ people who are smart, determined, and we favour ability over experience.

Tha sinn a’ tighinn bho gach seòrsa beatha agus a’ bruidhinn dusanan de chànanan, a’ nochdadh an luchd-èisteachd chruinneil a tha sinn a’ frithealadh. Agus nuair nach eil iad aig an obair, bidh Woodlanders a’ leantainn ùidhean bho rothaireachd gu cumail sheilleanan, bho frisbee gu madadh-ruadh.

More than ever, Woodlands is the place children and families love to visit and one of the biggest reasons is our team. It’s what makes Woodlands: Woodlands. We are refining the experience and improving education in lots of little ways that make a big difference. Woodlands takes the childcare and Kindergarten experience to new heights.

Co-stèidheadair Woodlands

Coille Fay

Mar cho-shealbhadair Woodlands còmhla ri mo chom-pàirtiche gnìomhachais, Hamish Rotstein, tha mi dìoghrasach mu dheidhinn Tràth-ionnsachadh. Tha mo dhealas airson Foghlam air a dhol thairis air 46 bliadhna thar gach ìre foghlaim – breith gu inbheach. Tha mi air a bhith na Phrionnsapal air mòran sgoiltean Prep-12 timcheall Astràilia agus tha tuigse dhomhainn agam air foghlam thar gach ìre - tha mi a’ tuigsinn cò às a tha clann a’ tighinn nam foghlam agus cò dha a thèid iad.

'S e an fhìor dhealas a th' agam ann am foghlam a bhith a' toirt seachad eòlasan foghlaim air leth do chloinn aois 0 – 6. Tha mi a' faicinn foghlam chan ann a-mhàin mar thuras beatha ach cuideachd mar ullachadh airson beatha. Is e ar lèirsinn airson Coilltean “Craobhan a chur fon sgàil nach eil dùil agad suidhe”. Tha mi a’ leantainn air adhart a’ “cur chraobhan” foghlaim le fios aig a’ chloinn gun tig am foghlam seo gu buil san àm ri teachd tron chloinn againn.

Tha dòigh-obrach làimhseachail agam leis na h-ionadan gu lèir a’ comhairleachadh, a’ fastadh agus a’ stiùireadh luchd-foghlaim tràth-òige gus an cùram agus am foghlam as fheàrr a thoirt do chloinn. Tha mi air prògram nas caoimhneil a stèidheachadh anns a h-uile ionad agus tha mi a’ faireachdainn cho moiteil às na Kinders agus iad a’ dol don sgoil cho ullaichte airson beatha.
Co-stèidheadair Woodlands

Hamish Rotstein

Tha Hamish na stiùiriche agus na cho-stèidheadair air Woodlands Long Day Care & Kindergarten

Tha Hamish na stèidheadair agus na phrionnsapal riaghlaidh air Rotstein Commercial Luchd-lagha, companaidh lagha stèidhichte ann am Melbourne a stèidhich e ann an 2000. Tha ceuman bacaidh agus for-cheum aige ann an lagh, saidheans poilitigeach agus seirbheisean ionmhais Hamish agus an gnìomh làidir aige airson cuid de na gnìomhachasan as soirbheachail ann an Astràilia. . Tha e air a bhith an sàs gu pearsanta mar neach-lagha, comhairliche agus ro-innleachdaiche ann am fàs mòran de na gnìomhachasan sin bho thoiseach tòiseachaidh gu stiùirichean margaidh nàiseanta is eadar-nàiseanta. Gu sònraichte, tha e air a bhith an sàs gu dlùth leis a’ Chemist Warehouse Retail Group, gnìomhachas a thòisich a theaghlach, a chuidich e gu bhith mar an t-sreath bùth-chungaidhean reic as motha ann an Astràilia. Tha e air a bhith an-còmhnaidh mar neach-lagha agus comhairliche aca airson còrr air 20 bliadhna.

Tha Hamish air cuideachadh le bhith a’ stèidheachadh grunn bhuidhnean carthannais chloinne eile a’ gabhail a-steach Creative Art Therapies Australia (Art Cabriolet roimhe) a bhios a’ cleachdadh leigheas ealain is ealain gus clann a chuideachadh a’ faighinn grèim air trauma agus RCH 1000 a tha a’ feuchainn ri $1M a thogail sa bhliadhna gus taic a thoirt do rannsachadh meidigeach air leigheas péidiatraiceach aig an Oilthigh. Ospadal Rìoghail na Cloinne ann am Bhictòria. Bho 2016 tha e cuideachd air a bhith na bhall air bòrd an Very Special Kids Foundation, an aon hospice cùram lasachaidh péidiatraiceach aig Victoria.

Bha ùidh Hamish ann am foghlam tràth-ionnsachaidh air a shìolachadh le a mhàthair, neach-foghlaim tràth-ionnsachaidh i fhèin airson còrr air 45 bliadhna. Chunnaic Hamish leis fhèin mar a tha deagh bhuaidh aig foghlam tràth-ionnsachaidh càileachd gu domhainn agus gu dearbhach air sunnd agus leasachadh chloinne. Stèidhich e Woodlands Early Learning le Fay Woodland stèidhichte air creideas agus dealas gun stad airson foghlam tràth-ionnsachaidh den chiad ìre agus cùram don chloinn air fad a tha nan cùram.

Coilltean Vision, Mission, and Values.

At Woodlands, our Vision, Mission, and Values are much more than words on a page. They guide the work we do every day. From the education and developmental support we offer, to the way we work with our childern, families, communities and each other, we know that by living up to our Vision, Mission, and Values we will help childern succeed.

Sealladh Coilltean
Gus craobhan a chur fon sgàil nach eil dùil agad suidhe - Foghlam airson Beatha.

Plant Tress – When you “plant trees” you passionately understand that the little, well planned and guided experiences you offer children now will grow into lifelong attitudes, skills and behaviours – “the shade.”

Most probably our Woodland Educators and Teachers will not be around to see their work mature, but
continue to work with children and their families because we see the greater good and the bigger picture for them and the world.

Education For Life – An education which empowers children to thrive and succeed in their current and then future environments.

Misean nan Coilltean
Clann agus an teaghlaichean a chuairteachadh le eòlas gus soirbheachadh agus a bhith nam buill ghnìomhach den choimhearsnachd aca.

To Thrive.

Nuair a bhios sinn a’ cleachdadh “soirbheachadh” nuair a bhios sinn a’ bruidhinn mu bhith ag oideachadh chloinne tha sinn a’ ciallachadh nach eil sinn toilichte le bhith dìreach a’ dèanamh “i” agus a’ dol thairis air “t”. Bidh sinn a’ cruthachadh àrainneachdan far am bi clann a’ soirbheachadh, airson a bhith air an stèidheachadh airson soirbheachadh, airson fàs làidir agus fallain, airson adhartas a dhèanamh, gus an ionnsachadh a leudachadh – gus soirbheachadh.
Woodlands Core Value

Respect.

Feumaidh dìteadh a bhith agad. Thoir dùbhlan nuair nach eil thu ag aontachadh, fiù 's nuair a tha e mì-chofhurtail no sàrachail; na dèan cron air sgàth co-leanailteachd sòisealta. Ach aon uair ‘s gu bheil co-dhùnadh às an ciall, geallaidh sinn e le làn chridhe agus fàgaidh sinn ego aig an doras.
Woodlands Core Value

Relate.

We know time is valuable, time for your family, time for fun, time for Woodlands. We need to communicate and ensure each team member understands the pressure of time and time management. Clearly communicating goals, actions and evaluations of each day is of prime importance.
Woodlands Core Value

Reflect.

Our reflections embrace the concept of serving. We want to provide the best service for our families. We start with the family and work backwards to be able to provide a service that matches their expectations. Reflection on the services we provide is honest, respectful, agile and outcome driven.
Woodlands Core Value

Agility.

Agility of mind and agility of learning – Agility of mind creates and embraces change, accepts that you don’t know everything,
adapts, improves. The agile learning environment is and educational space that is intentionally designed to be adjustable, exchangeable and moveable. Agile learning adapts to individual differences in environment, children, staff, cultures – the total environment. Agile learning creates differentiated learning awareness and is promoting a movement toward adjustment and adaptation of ,content, process, product and the learning environments.
Woodlands Core Value

Sustainability.

Sustainability is not just recycling and having the “bins” to separate one piece of garbage from the other – it is so much more. Woodlands does not recycle we upcycle. Sustainability and upcyling at Woodlands is encouraged in everything we do daily and includes and continues to grow.
