ABOUT US


Green Star Childcare statement of philosophy is based on "Best practice model" barrow from the mental health care filed. This model concentrates on skill building, empowerment, self-efficiently and individual resilience.
We base out day to day teachings on the RIE (Resources for Infant Edu-carers ) approach; because we are here to support your child to be: authentic, autonomous, competent and connected with their peers and environment.


RIE role is to create an environment in which your child can develop a love for : self-directed play, respectful limits, showing trust, accepting a large variety of feelings, natural physical literacy. The more predictable an environment is, the easier it is for a child to learn and become curious.
We as educators and parents demonstrate basic trust in children to be explorers and to learn what they are ready for. Because of this trust, we provide children with only enough help to allow the child to enjoy mastery of their own actions as a unique human been.


Green Star Childcare is committed to demonstrate long-term planning and continuous learning. We enroll children with ability/disability and adjust our learning curriculum as such to be inclusive to all ability children. Because of my personal background was seeded in mental health care filed, I truly trust that follow up care is the best way to constantly develop and improve skills and knowledge; which I have applied from the very 1st day as a ECE professional
