Our Philosophy

We believe that learning is: Children that are capable, competent learners and our high expectations of each child ensure they grow and succeed, seeking greater independence whilst building their resilience, self-confidence and positive self-esteem. Our image of the child is one that is full of potential, curiosity to learn and embracing others in the joy of learning. Leadership & continuous learning for our educators empowers them to be the best they can be, it is a major component in the development of highly effective learning opportunities for all children, incorporating the Victorian Early Years Learning and Development Framework. Collaborative partnerships within the preschool and its wider community build a sense of “belonging” for our children and their families, allowing them to feel safe and secure in their environment engagement with them allows us to build social capital, creating a strong foundation that reflects the identity and needs of our community. Natural environments ensure children appreciate the world around them and build an understanding of sustainability, being mindful of conserving energy and using natural and recycled materials. Transitions within the program are viewed as valuable learning opportunities in building confidence and well-being within our everyday routines, and group times are important learning opportunities. Life is a constant process of ‘change’ and we need to support children to be prepared for this. Respectful relationships encourage an inclusive, nurturing and supportive culture, where children, families & staff communicate openly and effectively, with warmth and honesty. Learning happens during social interactions and collaborations with others. Diversity of children, families and staff are to be acknowledged and celebrated, ensuring individuals are valued for their strengths, abilities, culture and beliefs and we understand that these qualities are what build a community.
