We recognise and respect Aboriginal cultures and the unique place of these in our heritage and future by learning about and valuing the place of Aboriginal people in our community. Embedded in our philosophy is the Victorian Early Years Learning and Development Framework. Guided by this framework, we aim to reinforce in our daily practice, the principles laid in The United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child.
We encourage and support children and families to become environmentally responsible and show respect for the environment and sustainable practices are embedded in the service operations.
We aim to provide a safe and nurturing play based learning environment, where each child is acknowledged as a unique and individual person, and has the opportunity to develop to their fullest individual potential and participate in the program regardless of race, gender, age, ability, social status or family structure.
We have an integrated teaching and learning approach, in that guided play and learning, child directed play and learning, and adult led learning are integrated and interwoven within the program provided for the children.
We aim to work in partnership with families and recognise that they are children’s first and most influential educators.
Staff are continually developing the necessary skills and practices to nurture and support the mental health and wellbeing of the children, families and other staff at our service.
