Cultural Learning Ground
The Australian Government's Adult Migrant Education Program (AMEP) is a free service to help eligible migrants and humanitarian visa holders with low English levels to improve their English language skills, assist with settlement into Australia and increase employment opportunities.The AMEP has been improved to increase access for eligible migrants and humanitarian entrants in Australia with no or low levels of English. If that sounds like you, the changes mean:
We provide safe, nurturing and educational environments for children to develop their abilities and potential. We are respectful of the uniqueness of each family’s cultural background and ensure families feel welcome to leave their children with confidence while they attend English classes,
The Early Learning Centre runs a relationship-based program focusing on the utmost respect for every child and family that we work with. Children learn through a play-based learning curriculum which allows them to explore, discover, negotiate, take risks, create meaning and solve problems which are the important foundations for developing literacy, numeracy and social skills.
Our passionate team of qualified educators follow a respectful approach and are committed to building close trusting relationships with each child and their family. They ensure there is consistent communication with families on a daily basis and provide a secure base for children spending time away from their family during the day.
Our program caters to a wide range of languages and we have consultants on hand at all times to assist with enrolment. As an element of our service and commitment to inclusion, Gowrie NSW AMEP services employ educators from English as a Second Language and Culturally and Linguistically Diverse backgrounds, including some who had made the transition from former students of the program. Throughout the operation of this program, Gowrie NSW have been regularly audited by NEAS and Department officials who have acknowledged and praised both our Early Learning Centres operations and the facilities provided.
Located on-site at TAFE NSW, children and families can feel safe and confident knowing their loved ones are close by. Our thoughtfully planned out spaces offer opportunities for exploration and investigation, and children feel excited to come to the center and develop a true love of learning. Whilst each age group has its own freedom of space, there is a caring culture where all children spend time together and learn from one another.
We offer an innovative programming system that celebrates individual children’s interests and strengths in their journey of learning and development. With an established philosophy embedded within the heart of the centre, the Gowrie NSW Early Learning Centre strives to create a gentle, loving atmosphere that is a home away from home for children and their families.
Gowrie NSW will find and manage childcare while you study English. Childcare will be provided in our onsite Early Learning Centres (ELC’s) or in mainstream centres if there are no onsite ELC’s available.
The Australian Government subsidises childcare for eligible children in the AMEP program.
Each year, Gowrie NSW helps educate and care for over 3,300 children of AMEP families.
