  • We honour, celebrate and incorporate different cultures including Aboriginaland Torres Strait Islanders

  • We promote ongoing learning by reflective practices

  • We gain insights in to the children's learning enabling us to support, inform and enrich their decision making

  • We believe a child's learning is a strength based practice

  • We build each child's strengths, skills and knowledge ensuring motivation and encouragement in learning

  • We use critical reflection to assess all processes used in the centre

  • We ensure that we meet the needs of all involved children, their families and the wider community

 

We Encourage...

 

  • The children to develop respectful, secure and reciprocal relationships

  • To learn to persevere, take risks and show empathy
