We view the child as the protagonist, we value and harness the natural curiosity and creativity of the whole child and interactions with peers and educators. We explore this curiosity and creativity with wonder, gentle guidance, support and reflection considering every child’s unique needs.
As Teachers, we bring our passions to the learning environment on a daily basis. We share our love for our family, pets and friends, we explore our love for food, sports and the outdoors, we read with passion, we share our stories, hopes for the future and experiences with love and respect. We bring our unique skills, passions and talents to the forefront each day to share them with the children, their families, the community and our fellow teachers.
We strive to capture the child’s journey and we share this with families. This builds the foundation and history of the centre and contributes to the development of the child. We continuously reflect and learn through this process.
We believe in a cycle of continuous learning and improvement. As educators we learn from and teach each other, we learn from the children and we gain knowledge from being active participants in our own learning and education.
We consider the environment to be the third teacher. It is important to stop and play, to let children be wondrous of things that are new, explore, investigate, become involved in risk taking, get dirty and express their uniqueness in a safe, homely, healthy, interesting, stimulating and thought provoking environment.
