Philosophy

Our Philosophy

We believe children’s voices are one of the most important provisions of our Philosophy and Children’s voices are acknowledged in our program, procedures and practices.

We believe the community is an important part of our Philosophy and we maintain links to the community through partnerships, with our families, we acknowledge the voices of our parents, carers and management team.

We acknowledge the traditional owners of the land, the Gamilaraay people, and pay our respects to past and present elders.

We believe that our Educators have their own voices and their own Professional Philosophy. All Educators agree with and practice the Centre’s Policies and Procedures.

We believe in reducing our footprint on the earth with several strategies practiced at the Centre with children, families and Educators.

We respect the cultural diversity of our community and practice this in our Centre.

We believe children develop confidence and need to feel respected and valued.

We believe children learn about their responsibilities to others, to appreciate their connectedness and interdepencence as learners, and to value collaboration and teamwork.

We strive as Educators to teach children to become lifelong learners and have continuity of learning, wellbeing, to be active and efficient communicators.

We believe that every child should belong, feel secure and safe, they should have a connection to the world and community, being engaged in their environment.

This philosophy links to the EYLF, NQF, ECSNR and our policies and procedures 2015.
