Community Involvement at Dragonfly’s Early Learning

Each year, we aim to introduce different community entities to Dragonfly’s Early Learning, Coolum Beach.

For many families, the early childhood setting may be their first contact with the broader community beyond their home. Initially, a child’s community consisted primarily of their immediate family, and as they grew older, other close family members expanded their community, including grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins, and neighbours.

Once they start attending early learning, they are introduced to the Early Learning Community.

A sense of community plays an essential role in the development of children’s awareness of their identity and feelings of belonging. You’ll often hear the saying, “It takes a village to raise a child.” This phrase refers to the collective responsibility of the entire community in supporting children’s growth and development into active citizens.

Since many children spend a significant amount of their early childhood being cared for by individuals other than their parents, and many of these children attend our Early Learning Centres, the centre plays a pivotal role as part of “the village.”

Community involvement takes various forms. Dragonfly’s Early Learning Centre seeks out the resources and opportunities available in the community by establishing relationships with other organisations, such as services like the Ambulance.

Last week, the children had a visit from the Ambulance. They had a great time participating in this visit and learned all about calling 000. It’s always very exciting to have a visit from this noisy vehicle that they sometimes hear and see on the roads. Getting to see it up close and personal and being able to sit and look inside is very thrilling!
