At RMCC, we are passionate about providing high quality education and care to families, children and the community in a welcoming and nurturing environment. We value our multicultural community and respect the diverse cultures, beliefs and philosophies of all members. Our large natural outdoor spaces with our pet chickens and rabbit make us a unique service of Richmond. Our seasonal and diverse menu provides nutritious fuel to our growing bodies to enable a day of exploration and growth.

Our play-based programs promote equal opportunities for all children aged 6 weeks to 5 years in a safe, positive and inclusive environment. Children’s interests, intentional teaching and the wider community shape these programs.

“I like watching the planes outside” – Virat

“I like riding the bikes” – Eliana

“I like playing with cars” – Charlie

“I like making cakes in home corner” – Alison

“I like being the bus driver on the bus we made today” – Teddy

“I like being a buddy to the babies in the Joey Room” – Emily

We believe children are capable learners who use exploration, problem solving and socialisation to make sense of the world around them. Childrens’ voices shape our programs as they make decisions and have choice about their day; where to play and learn, meal times, sleep and rest.

We recognise families as a child’s first and most important teacher. Their knowledge, beliefs and cultures are respected and contribute to decision making of both their child’s learning and development and at a service level. We communicate with our families daily to exchange information of their child and celebrate the highlights of their day.  Our families value the trusting relationships their child has formed with their educators and believe in our educators’ ability to decision-make in the best interest of children. The Parent Support Group within our service is available for our families to join take part in fundraising, events and networking of the service.

Our qualified educators are both knowledgeable and professional, interacting respectfully with families and children and also between their colleagues as they collaborate with each other’s strengths to reach positive outcomes for all stakeholders.

Early childhood theorists guide and inform our practices as educators, teaching us how children learn and develop best throughout these early years. We use this evidence to then make informed decisions about our educational program and the care we deliver to ensure we meet the needs of all children appropriately.

We continuously reflect on our service through supportive discussions between management, families, children and educators to ensure our consistent delivery and improvement of high quality education and care.
