We are focused on ensuring your child learns in an environment that supports a strong sense of well-being. We do this by providing a safe and secure environment, whilst being balancing child-led and educator-responsive learning. We partner with families and commit to providing their child with a secure base and safe haven. We create an inclusive learning environment for all children.
We support the right of each child to develop a strong sense of identity. We do this by recognising children learn in different ways and their learning journey is individualised and captured through educational narratives. We collaborate in meaningful ways with families ensuring their voice is included in the child’s learning. We actively seek out authentic community partnerships inclusive of our indigenous communities.
We help children to make meaningful contributions and connection to their world. We do this by helping the child develop dispositions for learning, and helping the children build on real world understandings and experiences. We are co-construct learning with each child, and we give meaningful and timely feedback to families through each child’s learning journey. We consult with communities and we learn together as we focus on being innovative and progressive in our pedagogical approach.
We teach children to learn to be effective communicators. We do this by scaffolding their learning environments with rich dialogic language, whilst encouraging their questioning and giving constant and individualised feedback. We seek out opportunities to educate our families to ensure they stay informed and feel able to learn from us. We find opportunities to expose children to culturally diverse community groups to support social-emotional development.
We support children to become confident and involved learners. We are playful, encouraging each child’s curiosity as they learn how to make personal connections between their world and creative play. We earn each child’s trust and show respect for family values, cultures, and language. We embrace and maintain secure and reciprocal relationships. We provide our children with regular community incursions and excursions to understand how to engage confidently with their world.
