We recognise and respect the Wurundjeri people as the traditional custodians of the land on which we play and learn.
We strongly believe in child-led, play-based learning that encourages each child to be a competent and confident learner, and fosters communication, exploration, independence, respect for others, curiosity, imagination and creativity.
The learning environment aims to provide stimulating experiences and open-ended materials which children are encouraged to use creatively rather than prescriptively. Children are supported to discover at their own pace in an unhurried atmosphere, where their discoveries and achievements are valued. We promote each child’s agency, enabling them to make choices and decisions.
Our programs are guided by both the Victorian Early Years Learning and Development Framework and the National Quality Framework.
We recognise that family relationships are important and crucial in a child’s life. We acknowledge the critical importance of the partnership between families and educators and we work towards positive and respectful relationships in order to provide the highest quality program for each child
We believe that each child, family and educator is a unique and valued individual. We value and honour diversity and accept and celebrate differences.
We recognise and value the importance of continuously updating the educators’ skills and knowledge, through ongoing learning that is individualised to enhance each educators unique needs.
In relation to the environment, we recognise that both indoor and outdoor environments play a vital role in supporting learning and promoting physical wellbeing, and strongly encourage the active use of our extensive outdoor space. We encourage the promotion and use of natural and recycled materials, support a workplace that is environmentally aware, and promote sustainable practices, minimising waste and recycling
