We strive to build meaningful and respectful relationships with all children and their extended families.
We endeavour to be an integral part of the local community through collaboration and participation with our neighbours, schools, local businesses, and community organisations.
We believe in the spirit of giving and making a difference in the community through participation in charities that impact our world.
We are committed to caring for and educating others to care for our planet and recognise that we have an important role to play in educating children to protect the environment today and into the future.
Our sustainability initiatives focus on embedding practices into our centre and promoting sustainable practices to families.
Values and Beliefs
Each child’s journey is unique and it’s our role to care for, support and nurture the whole child. It is our responsibility to engage with children to help develop skills, knowledge, feelings, and attitudes that assist in setting them on a path to become children who are kind, inspired and confident participants in the world.
We recognize the importance of helping children understand themselves and their place in the world. We value the uniqueness and worth of each child and the diversity of each family, our educators, and our community. We encourage children to be accepting of diversity and engage with our community through specialist programs.
Respect the roles of parents as primary caregivers and value them as decision makers about their children’s learning and wellbeing.
Respect the rights of the child to feel safe, secure, and loved.
Respect the children’s uniqueness and their sense of belonging.
Respect the child’s right to play, discover, speak and be healthy.
Respect our team of amazing educators.
Respect our environment and the world we live in.
We believe children are powerful, competent, and capable. They are also curious learners who naturally investigate, inquire, and engage the world around them. Time, space, and people influence how children approach learning and how they see themselves as learners.
Our environment and interactions will reflect a positive influence on how children view themselves so that their self-esteem, self-worth, and rights are always held in high regard.
Children are decision makers in our educational program which engages children as constructors of the curriculum. Our educational programs embrace all children as an investigator, risk taker and partner in directing their own learning.
The right for children’s voices to be heard is where consultation begins.
Children learn through active and constructive involvement in play. They will experience a ‘hands on’ approach to learning where they are challenged to explore, investigate, and discover.
We practice honesty, patience, and fairness so children and families feel connected and supported. We will act with integrity, in a professional and dignified manner.
We aim to be trusted partners with parents, staff, communities, and other stakeholders.
We will be reflective on our areas for development and open to continuous improvement.
We are committed to providing a safe and hygienic environment for children to explore.
We promote the benefits of healthy eating through nutritious seasonal menus and our Garden to Plate program. We have a strong focus on nutrition, wellbeing and movement incorporating yoga, relaxation, and Fundamental Movement Development.
We are committed to child safety. We want children to feel safe, happy and empowered. We support and respect all children as well as our staff and volunteers.
We are committed to the cultural safety of Aboriginal children, the cultural safety of children from culturally and/or linguistically diverse backgrounds and providing a safe environment for children with a disability.
