Our team of Educators are:
Helene Hart- Teaching Director and educational Leader
Welcome to our website. I hope you find the information we provide useful and a good introduction to the early childhood programme we provide for the children in our community.
As Director of Dover Heights Community Preschool, I bring with me a wealth of experience and knowledge from the range of community preschools in which I have had the privilege to work.
As an educationalist, I value highly community preschools where parents and educators work alongside each other for the benefit of the children in our care.
I believe in a holistic view of the child where through play-based experiences we can guide children towards independence and being capable of constructing their own learning experiences.
Whilst we work towards preparing children for school, we facilitate learning life long skills through recognition of each child’s social,emotional and cultural development.
At Dover Heights Community Preschool, we have a strong commitment to educating and actively involving our children in environmentally sustainable experiences. We believe that by developing daily routines, the children will instinctively be active participants in the future of their environment.
I am proud to be teaching at Dover heights Preschool and welcome you to visit the preschool by appointment.
Please phone Rizqaa on 93718843 for a tour.
