This week, the GAP teachers were presented with award certificates from the 2018 Children’s Week Awards. The teaching team had been nominated for a Child Development Award, for significantly improving young people’s opportunities to learn and grow.
The inscription accompanying the award reads:
The teachers at the German Australian Playschool are very deserving of an award, judging by the rave reviews and outstanding feedback they receive regularly from the community. They are highly dedicated, energetic, loving and caring individuals who prepare, plan and deliver a high quality exciting and educational play-based program for 3-5 year olds.
It is obvious from the moment you walk through the playschool gate in the morning that the teachers strive to let each child and family know just how special and wonderful they are.
As a team, the teachers work together seamlessly to support the children in all their stages of development; and after work the teachers are often found going the extra mile, discussing children’s individual and group needs, and incorporating these into the program.
The teachers seem content to be paid in smiles, but now and then an award seems another nice way to acknowledge the energy, dedication, love and passion they bring to their work.
The ACT Children’s Week Committee extends its congratulations and sincere thanks to the GAP Teaching Team for their outstanding example and commitment.
Congratulations to the GAP Teaching Team!
