Our Philosophy

  • We run a rich, play based program that reflects the principles, practices and learning outcomes of the Early Years Learning and Development Framework to ensure that the children we teach have a strong sense of Identity and wellbeing, are able to connect with and contribute to their world, are confident and involved learners and become effective communicators.
  • We believe children reach their full potential when families and educators work together. We celebrate diversity and build strong relationships with each individual family, placing high value on family input and participation. We recognise the importance of family and culture and encourage and maintain open lines of communication in order to promote inclusiveness, support families and ensure each child’s needs are met.
  • At Oban Preschool, we acknowledge that children are confident and capable learners who learn in their own way and at their own pace. We see each child as an individual, scaffolding learning according to individual need and encouraging curiosity, experimentation and investigation in all children.
  • The staff at Oban love teaching young children and supporting them to learn and grow. We view ourselves as life-long learners and engage in ongoing critical reflection and attend relevant professional development, in order to provide a high quality kindergarten program, tailored to meet the individual needs of all the children in our care.
