Our Philosophy

This is the philosophy we live, learn and teach by. Central to our philosophy are the concepts of Being, Belonging and Becoming. Our intentional program supports each child as the person they are, understanding and connecting with their sense of self and supporting their development as they grow and achieve.

Optimal learning will occur when children are in a safe, warm, caring, inviting and stimulating environment

Children should have the opportunity to explore in a natural environment

Sensory opportunities support learning in young children, especially their wellbeing

Through risk taking and independence, children learn resilience, develop a higher self-esteem and become more creative capable learners

A balanced curriculum allows the whole child to develop, therefore children should be immersed in literacy, STEM, the arts, physical play and humanities

Continual reflection and learning provides a contemporary and relevant program for the children and families

Each child is individual and intentional teaching needs to cater for their skills and learning styles

Families are paramount in working with the staff to create a developmentally appropriate program for each child

Learning for life starts in early childhood and children should be involved in caring for their environment and themselves, being part of a group, respecting others and learning a range of social skills including self-regulation

The Community play an important part in kindergartens as a means to access other services, teach the children about the world around them, maintain a place which meets the needs of its users and support transitions for children

The program should contain a mixture of indoor/outdoor play, active/passive times, open and closed ended activities, opportunities to be in a small group, by themselves and with the whole group and have many opportunities for exploration, choice, decision making and free play

We acknowledge Traditional Owners of Country and are committed to fostering a culture of respect, inclusiveness, diversity and embracing the unique skills and qualities of all
