Our Philosophy

We believe that children learn best through play based experiences in which they can explore, investigate, experiment and participate in. The outcomes of Identity, Wellbeing, Learning, Community and Communication enable us to implement appropriate programs, based on the children’s ongoing development and emerging interests.

Children

  • Learn through play
  • Are given time and space to develop skills
  • Learn formally and informally
  • Are respected for who they are
  • Need to feel safe, secure and develop a sense of Belonging

Children learn respect for and tolerance of each other through their daily interactions at pre – school and in the community.

Parents

  • Collaborative partnerships with families are fostered to best provide for the needs of individual children
  • Are encouraged to participate in the pre – school by asking for regular feedback and inviting them to join in with aspects of our program
  • Are regularly updated on the current program which is displayed fortnightly
  • Are informed on what’s happening through monthly newsletters
  • Are encouraged to be involved with the PAG (Parent Advisory Group)

Program and Environment

  • We trust and encourage children to be active participants in their own learning through investigation and discovery
  • An emergent curriculum is followed reflecting the National Framework (ELF) and the Victorian Framework (VEYLDF)
  • Children are encouraged to be responsible for their own learning through choices in experiences, interests and routines
  • Teachable moments are captured by educators. The children are involved as partners in program implementation by expressing their thoughts, ideas and opinions
  • Families play an integral part in the program as partners with educators to gather a comprehensive picture of the whole child
  • Positive relationships are formed with children individually, and also in group experiences (small and large)
  • Reflective thinking and conversations with children and families are integral for a holistic approach to teaching and engagement
  • We support the learning of an additional language that the Four Year Old Group (Kurmeel’s) are involved in
  • The ECLP (Early Childhood Language Program) is delivered once a week for 3 hours

Educators

  • Are responsive and sensitive to children’s ideas and emotions
  • Work collaboratively with Bestchance, families and community organizations
  • Value parental input and participation in the program
  • Value and utilize the expertise of other professionals and community groups to enhance children’s learning
  • Assist children to participate in their community through neighbourhood walks and sharing information about relevant facilities
  • Educators support childrens independence by setting up the environment, which enables them to self-select, this also includes children being responsible for packing up and resetting play spaces.
