In consultation with staff and management our philosophy was developed to guide our curriculum, pedagogy and holistic programs using the Early Years Learning Framework.
We aspire to the values of Reggio Emilia based on the hundred languages of children. We acknowledge children’s learning and being in one hundred ways, one hundred thoughts and one hundred actions.
We strive to create an environment where educators, children and families feel valued and respected. An environment where strengths are encouraged, and each child is supported in reaching their potential. Our programs support a safe and unhurried environment where children’s creativity and imagination flourish, where Aboriginal culture is imbedded, and practices involve caring for our world.
Our staff value and respect everyone’s uniqueness and identity regarding culture, beliefs, values and differences. We strive to build strong connections with each family and the wider community.
We believe through ongoing learning and reflective practice we can continuously improve on all aspects of caring for and educating children and believe wholeheartedly that successful learning must be age appropriate, enjoyable and collaborative.
