We acknowledge the original owners of our land the Gadigal people along with all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people in the community. As part of this community, we have a responsibility to our children and families to establish and maintain a sense of belonging and connection to our shared land and to actively embrace the indigenous culture of the Gadigal people. We are committed to our continued learning and teaching of our history with respect and acknowledgment of the traditional owners of the land.
Our Centre Values
Respectful Relationships: Valuing everyone’s differences and uniqueness
To continue to grow and learn new things for all stakeholders
Uniting as a team, working alongside families, children and the community and to provide a sense of home away from home
We acknowledge that families trust us with their most precious gifts, their children. Our service supports families in their parenting role and offer a collaborative approach to the nurturing and education of their children. We encourage families to active participants in the life of our centre, by sharing cultural customs, knowledge, strengths and interests of their children.
Each child is unique individual with their own individual pattern and rate of development. We believe that children are by nature social beings, born with the drive to play, explore and learn. We believe children need a loving, secure, safe and happy environment to stimulate learning. Children initate their own learning through play and are active participants of the environment, who teach us new ways of being daily. As pedagogies we have an ongoing commitment to continue to professionally grow, and to have a team of pedagogies who support one another and critically reflect upon their practices.
As pedagogies we believe it is a role to educate the children on the importance of respecting our natural environment and how to actively look after their environment and the greater world. We value that these resources are an opportunity for creativity and possibility. We believe in empowering the children in their early years so that they believe that they can make a difference to the natural environment.
We respect the role we play in the children’s formative years. We strive to embed a “love of learning” that they may take with them through their life.
“Tell me & I forget, Teach me & I may remember, Involve me & I learn”
