Our Philosophy

We believe every child is unique and has the right to be valued and respected as part of the community. As our future leaders, we understand that they are ready to learn from birth and are capable of great things when given the opportunity to be the best version of themselves.

We understand that families are children’s first and most important teachers and that they play a major role in our service, being the first link in connections that provide a supportive, caring and nurturing community.

We will realise our ideals by:

  • Providing the highest standards of education and care for the children and families through environments that are stimulating, inviting and inclusive for all. We welcome all children and families of all cultures and beliefs, treating them as equals, irrespective of family circumstances and backgrounds.
  • Educators are committed to the safety and wellbeing of children, providing a safe and secure environment free from harm.
  • We encourage and welcome involvement from parents, families and friends in all aspects of the centre, providing opportunities to share feedback, knowledge and ideas. Being open and honest in all communications builds strong reciprocal relationships.
  • Advocating for the early years of learning and development as the most important in a child’s life. We offer a child centred program that focuses on community involvement, sustainable practices, hygiene and, most of all, fun. We support children to become confident and involved learners as they learn about the world around them through play.
  • Modelling and teaching children kindness, empathy and the opportunity to practice mindfulness in everyday situations.
