We believe every child is a capable and competent learner who comes to kindy with a unique set of experiences and learnings. We value each child’s individuality and believe that we can scaffold their learning best when we are familiar with their individual interests, families and cultural heritages.
We liaise with services and seek resources to enrich our program. We communicate with specialists to assist in planning an enriching environment for children with additional needs.
We believe that through play children learn about, and make sense of, themselves and the world around them.
We believe that children learn best when they feel safe, supported and appreciated; when they actively participate in varied, challenging and interesting experiences. We believe that through these learning experiences children explore, investigate and express themselves, plus independence and co-operation are encouraged, and appropriate behaviour is reinforced.
We empower children to make choices and take ownership of their play in order that they will learn to take responsibility for themselves, to co-operate with others and to effectively resolve conflicts.
We value of the process of children’s work rather than simply admiring the finished product.
We celebrate the learning and make it visible by displaying learning stories and publishing our own books about what we learnt. We organise special events for families to connect with and celebrate the learning with their children.
