Our Philosophy

Kalbarri Kindergarten

Kalbarri Kindergarten believes in the following:

  • QUALITY: We believe in educating children holistically to support each child’s independence, social, emotional and physical as well as their learning and development.
  • RELATIONSHIPS: We believe in maintaining positive relationships through respectful communication and interactions within the kindergarten and broader community.
  • CHILD SAFETY: Educators are committed to the safety of children; reducing and removing the risk of child abuse, is at the centre of our decision making.
  • NATURAL ENVIRONMENT: We value our natural environment which promotes many opportunities for children to explore, investigate, discover and challenge themselves as competent learners.
  • TEAMWORK: We believe that we all need to work together as a team; this is inclusive of children, families, staff and the wider community.
  • RESPECT: We believe that it is important to treat others as we expect them to treat ourselves. To earn respect, first you have to give it.
  • STIMULATING: The educational environment must be interesting to the children, and enable them to become engaged independently.
  • INCLUSION: Everyone in our kinder environment is included in every way, and this includes children of any ability and also the wider community.
