Handprints Wentworth Point

Late 2018, Sydney Olympic Park Authority put to tender a newly built centre. With water views and located opposite the Ferry, we immediately felt that this site encompassed our philosophy and vision in regards to what is important in early childhood. With a natural yard and large open spaces, we felt that it would fit perfectly into our humble Handprints services.

Our teaching team has come together and the bonds between the staff and with the children are prevalent each day. From birth, children are given the chance to explore and succeed in their learning through respectful interactions and environmental provocations. Located across the road from Wentworth Point Public School, this service has a strong connection to the local primary school and this aids in children’s successful transition to school.

The children at Wentworth Point love to go on community excursions and take advantage of all the shops and transport available right at their door step.

 

Meet Angelina, Our Wentworth Point Director:

Hello, my name is Angelina Fossano and I am the Centre Director of Handprints ELC Wentworth Point. I am a university qualified Primary School and Early Childhood Teacher with over 10 years’ experience working alongside children from 0-12. I am also a mother to a spirited little girl named Ally who has set me on the journey of motherhood and all that it encompasses.

I value children’s ability to lead their own learning as they are confident, capable and have unlimited potential, thus always seeking to find out about their world and their place within it. As early childhood professionals we will respectfully support the children in their learning through guiding and facilitating their journeys of discovery and meaningful inquiry.

Our role is to therefore build partnerships with our families and the extensive Wentworth Point community hub to make visible the many different skills and  capabilities of the children entrusted into our care.  As after all, they are our youngest and most creative citizens!

We look forward to establishing our Handprints Wentworth Point community with our families and celebrating the adventure of the early years together.
