OUR PHILOSOPHY

Our program provides a warm, welcoming and caring atmosphere. We aim to support children to develop a strong sense of identity and wellbeing. We encourage children to become confident people by supporting them to develop skills and knowledge necessary to be confident communicators and competent learners. We encourage children to play, as this is their way to test skills, knowledge and develop a natural sense of wonder in their world, which encourages them to extend and explore. Educators encourage and facilitate strong links with the community by collaborating with children, families and their local community.
