At Launchpad our logo is a rocket. Rockets are wonderful and represent many things that we want for our children…for them to reach for the stars, explore far and wide and go beyond what we think is possible. Rockets launch us into a world of possibilities and at Launchpad, we’re striving to do the same for our little people. We want them to blast off into a universe of discovery where they can explore, learn and shine bright!
Our Launchpad community will be built on 3 core values:
- Readiness – A rich and reciprocal learning environment focusing on books and literacy.
- Respect – Self-respect, respect for others and respect for the world around us.
- Resilience – Building self-worth and confidence in children and all members of the Launchpad community. Resilience is described beautifully as “the happy knack of bungee jumping through life’s pitfalls- to rise above adversity and obstacles.” (Andrew Fuller-Psychologist, Author and Speaker)
At Launchpad our educators, children and families are of equal importance and we can all learn from each other. All members of our Launchpad community will feel respected, heard and valued for their unique contributions and strengths. Launchpad will foster and encourage a culture of respect and resilience and a love of learning, friendship and personal growth. It really is so special to be a part of “the village” that it takes to raise a child.
So, welcome to our Launchpad community. We look forward to meeting you all and embarking on an exciting adventure together!
Hi I’m Della and my husband David and I would like to welcome you to our family owned and run centre. We are excited to invite you to join our Launchpad tribe! I have over 10 years of teaching experience in both Primary and Early Learning settings with a special interest in Early Years Literacy and David has run a successful tennis coaching business, Topline Tennis in the local community for over 20 years.
We are the immensely proud parents of 3 beautiful boys- Joshua, Lucas and Zachary and I think it would be fair to say that we’ve dedicated our lives to loving, nurturing and teaching children! Launchpad is the realisation of my long held dream to open an Education centre that not only excels in teaching and inspiring young children but also creates a special community where educators, families and their children can come together and connect to support, encourage and help each other in these fast paced and often impersonal times. At Launchpad, we welcome your family into our family and look forward to sharing lots of laughter, love and learning together. Working with children is an honour and a journey where I’ve learnt as much as I’ve taught, and we are truly honoured and delighted to help launch your little people into a world of infinite possibilities and discovery.
