Our Centre’s Philosophy
We believe that all children are creative, curious and active learners and that every child is unique. We believe that children thrive through participating in experiences that are joyful and fun and aim to provide a safe space that encourages their individual strengths to shine.
We aim to create an engaging and inspiring learning environment, where children feel welcomed and supported to learn life-long skills that help them explore, experiment and grow.
Our play-based program is filled with stimulating, hands-on experiences that admire and reflect the ideas and interests of the children within our service, as well as challenge and extend on their skills and perspectives.
We recognise that the children within our service will be at different developmental stages and will each be comfortable with their own pattern of learning and play.
We see this as a strength to our service allowing opportunities for leadership and positive role modelling as well as teamwork and cooperation between children, and between children and educators.
Our Educators encourage and support each individual child’s social, emotional, physical, and intellectual development and will endeavour to improve on their own skills through critical reflection and constructive feedback.
We recognise that we all contribute to the wellbeing of the environment we live in and will encourage educators, children and families to explore and establish sustainable practices within our centre and in the outside world.
