Our Philosophy

  • Our Educational program will reflect and be shaped by the Early Years Learning Frameworks and the National Quality Frameworks.
  • We provide a warm, caring and safe environment with a flexible routine. For example these include transitional periods (arrival time) mat time, learning through play time, snack time, toileting, outdoor routines.
  • We respect families’ essential contribution that they make to their child’s learning and development. For example our Families attending this year value their children’s learning and health(nutrition) and safety (climate seasonal)
  • We believe that adults (Families and Educators) are facilitators of children’s learning. This is achieved by learning through play for example: role modelling, intentional teaching, problem solving, repetition, exploring. Collaboration between Families and Educators are fundamental in providing opportunities for children’s learning and development so that it will enable them to reach their full potential.
  • We encourage a sense of belonging by recognising that everyone within our community is an individual. We acknowledge and value our diverse cultural differences. Our practice demonstrates anti-bias approach to planning and programming.
  • We recognise and value the knowledge and commitment of staff and fully support their continuing professional development.
  • As the Early Childhood Community changes so does our Professional Learning and Development as Educators. This will reflect in our Philosophy and daily practices.
