This approach relies heavily on facilitation by the educators and at the heart of Fairchild are early year educators who are 100% committed to providing every opportunity to help a child unearth and evolve his or her own interests through play and inquiry. This commitment is fuelled by a profound belief in the philosophy of Reggio Emilia inspired learning.

Wellbeing. This word is the latest buzz-word in professional development in corporate circles although it has long existed for students, with schools recognising that a holistic approach to academic success also included the promotion of the social and emotional development and wellbeing of students.
