Centre Philosophy

 

 

Being a small family of 15 staff members, it is important that our Centre Philosophy is reflective of our personal as well as professional beliefs and values. The Centre Philosophy provides a guiding coalition for our vision and what is essential to our practices as Educators.

 

Our Centre Philosophy:

 

  • To respect and value each child’s individuality and to strive to create a nurturing and secure environment.

     

  • To promote safety, security and respect among educators, children and families where they will feel valued, confident and connected to each other.

 

  • To provide children with various opportunities and stimulating experiences where they are actively involved; and can make choices to initiate and lead learning thus enabling them to reach their full potential in all areas of development.

 

  • To recognise and respect positive relationships with children, families and the community and invite them to contribute to our daily curriculum.

     

  • To collaborate and work in partnership with families to develop a sense of belonging for each child thus ensuring the best outcomes for them.

     

  • To promote a multicultural environment by encouraging educators, children and families to respect each other’s beliefs, views and ideas.

     

  • To acknowledge and value Australian Indigenous and Torres Strait Islander beliefs and culture.

     

  • To value and respect all educators and enhance their knowledge and skills through professional development and training.

     

  • To create a sense of belonging where educators, children and families feel valued, confident and connected to each other.

     

  • To educate children and families in being responsible about their natural environment through practices of sustainability.

     

  • To provide a safe and healthy environment for all children, families and staff through maintaining buildings/equipment and ongoing training for the educators/staff.
