Philosophy

We believe that each child is a unique individual, is capable and resourceful with different interests, families, backgrounds, experiences. Children are motivated to learn when their interests are accounted for and used to further extend their thinking and learning.

  • We believe the Early Childhood years are a vital time in a child’s development and that positive and quality early childhood experiences strongly influence children as they grow and lay a solid foundation for later life. We believe in creating an educational, relaxed home like setting that ensures that is stimulating and challenging and provides a warm, caring, positive, stable and supportive environment in which each child can grow and learn. We believe this assists children to develop to their full potential.

  • When children are given opportunities to be actively involved and engage in processes such as investigation, experimentation, decision making, adventures, exploration, creation and problem solving through the use of materials and activities, interactions with peers and adults within their environment it fosters a greater sense of self and well-being.

  • We respect families as the child’s primary care and support network. Families are encouraged to contribute from their wealth of knowledge of their own child. We provide an environment that is culturally diverse and encourage, respect, value and embrace diverse values, beliefs, family and cultural backgrounds, traditions, life experiences and knowledge children and families bring to preschool.

  • We recognise the importance of ensuring that Educators, staff and families work towards common goals and value families as a partner and important resource. We continually strive to develop and maintain collaborative and open partnerships with families, inviting their participation into all aspects of our programs, policies, procedures and events. Families are involved in programming in collaborative manner through conversation, family surveys, feedback sheets, news and spontaneous discussion. Families are welcomed and encouraged into the program at all times. We provide a place for families to find a sense of community and network for mutual respect, enhancing respectful relationships with each family member, past and present.

  • We believe that our Educators are facilitators of learning and exploration working collaboratively with children, families and the community and other staff team members. Our Educators support children to develop positive attitudes towards learning and the development of each child to enhance their self-esteem and we support all staff in furthering their knowledge and education through professional development.

  • We value the longevity and commitment of our Educators and staff which respect the individuality and contributions of all staff working collaboratively together in order to provide a happy, caring and stimulating environment for all.

  • We are committed to the environment and improving sustainable practices and teachings. The environment influences how a child learns and effects all who interact as part of it. We therefore aim to provide a safe, secure, warm, aesthetically pleasing and comfortable environment for children, staff, families past and present to enjoy and benefit from being a part of a community.

  • We respectfully honour and acknowledge the Garingal and Guringai people, the traditional custodians of the land on which we work and play and provide opportunities for the children to learn from the experiences and knowledge of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander societies.

  • We are committed to continually endeavouring to improve our service, programs and facilities for the children, families, staff and the community.
