Centre Philosophy

We acknowledge the original custodians of this land, the Dharawal people and their language and all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people in our land. We take responsibility for maintaining a sense of belonging and connectedness to our shared history and culture and strive to care for the land on which we all live.

We see children as insightful, capable and unique individuals, who come to our centre with their own interests, talents, skills, and ideas. We will ensure that every child exercises their right to play, privacy, participation, to be heard, practice their own culture and make decisions regarding matters that effect their lives.

Our educators will protect and cherish the innocence of children and thus provide a safe and secure environment that will support each child to thrive.  

Children have a natural desire to play, explore, experiment and discover. It is through play that young children learn to make connections with others, to develop their ideas and express themselves. We encourage play that is child led and open-ended in which children can follow their interests and learn to organise and understand the complexities of the world they live in.   

School readiness is a fundamental aspect of our program and underpins many of the experiences provided at our preschool.  Using the EYLF as a guide, our program will see Educators use intentional teaching, which is deliberate, purposeful, and thoughtful in its delivery to supporting all children develop the core skills that will support them when starting school and provide positive long-term impact on their learning and development.

We view our families as our partners, supporting each other in providing the best outcomes for your children. We are equally committed to being active in our community by supporting local businesses, utilising our community resources and enhancing connections to community and culture past and present.
