Are capable, competent, co-contributors who are active participants in their own learning. Are contributors in a program of open-ended learning and education experiences that takes account of the various ways children learn, that is based on their own interests and that will instill a love of learning and a belief in each child’s unique abilities.
We aim to empower children with the skills and knowledge that will help them to develop mutually respectful and rewarding relationships with people who are similar to and different from themselves.
Families are a child’s most significant relationship and a child’s first and most influential teacher. We are active in building strong partnerships and involvement with families on the care, nurturing and education of their children.
We recognise that all families are not the same – we seek to build an environment that is inclusive, that recognises, celebrates and builds on the strength of the diverse cultural backgrounds, languages, abilities and special needs of all children and their families and our team.
Our team members show trust, respect and support to each other and share our talents and abilities.
We take an ethical and professional approach to children and their families and apply our knowledge and expertise in all aspects of our work.
We have a strong commitment to the ongoing professional development of our team, so that skills and knowledge are constantly being challenged and updated.
We can ensure that future of our planet by educating those who will inherit it. We foster a program that seeks to build a connection with and a sense of wonder with regard to nature and concern for present and future sustainability through practice and promoting environmentally thoughtful practices (i.e. – growing plants, using tank water, minimising waste and using/recycling materials thoughtfully.)
We acknowledge, respect and celebrate the culture and diversity within our community and beyond. We encourage children to develop a greater awareness of their wider world and how we are all participants in it. We support charitable initiatives that are significant to our families and our team.
