Our Philosophy

We believe our role is to help each child develop a positive self-concept through mutual respect, praise and encouragement. As caregivers, our role plays a vital part in the first five years of a child’s life as this is where they do their most important learning. Recognising this, we offer a rich ‘hands on’ environment, no matter what stage of development children are at.

We deliver educational, play-based learning.

Our programs are child-centred, stimulating and maximise opportunities for enhancing and extending each child’s learning and development.

We safeguard health & safety.

We believe that children have the right to experience quality education and care in an environment that safeguards and promotes their health, safety and wellbeing.

We offer welcoming indoor and outdoor spaces.

Our environment provides a rich and diverse range of experiences that promote children’s learning and development.

We employ qualified and responsive educators.

Qualified and experienced educators, who develop warm, respectful relationships with children, create predictable environments and encourage children’s active engagement in the learning program.

We listen, engage and respond.

Relationships with children are responsive, respectful and promote children’s sense of security and belonging.

We partner with families and the community.

We work in partnership with parents and the community through our ‘open door policy’ so your ideas, support and input is valued, respected and encouraged. We look forward to meeting your family!

We ensure effective leadership and management.

Effective leadership and governance of the service contributes to quality environments for children’s learning and development. Effective leaders establish shared values for the service and set clear direction for the service’s continuous improvement.
