Our Philosophy

  1. We respect the individuality and choices of all children. We believe that it is the right of a child to have a clean, safe and nurturing ‘home-like’ environment to inspire their natural curiosities. We follow the children’s lead and are guided by their ideas and interests, and educators actively seek ways to support and extend their learning.

 

  1. We are continually inspired to create meaningful relationships and purposeful learning environments to support children’s learning and development.

 

  1. We believe it takes a village to raise a child. We value and respect the roles of the families and the wider community and we strive to continuously engage with families and employees to provide the best opportunities for our children. We believe the local community to be a valuable resource and value their support in the role of developing a child’s sense of belonging to their surroundings and their wider world.

 

  1. We believe the role of the educator is to support, inspire and follow when being led. Educators and children are viewed as equal co-constructors of knowledge. We respect the strong relationship between the educator and child in order to be attuned to children’s methods of communication.

 

  1. We believe in a child-centred curriculum, which values the ideas and interests of the children and continues to provoke and inspire children to achieve their greatest outcomes.

 

  1. We believe in creating a sustainable future for our children. We want to inspire and encourage children to be connected to the world in which they live and to actively participate in sustainable practices.
