Philosophy

The rights of the child are paramount

Each child has the right to be an active member of the community in which they live; to have their individual and cultural identity recognised and respected; to express their opinions and have their views considered in any decisions that may affect them.

Children are successful, competent and capable learners

Children are active learners from birth, constructing their knowledge, meanings and understanding through their interactions, relationships and experiences. They are able to form opinions, express their ideas, collaborate with others, plan and persist in learning.

Equity, inclusion and diversity

In a fair and just society the intrinsic worth of all children and their families, their strengths and their right to equitable access and participation in the community is clearly visible in all aspects of service delivery.

Valuing Australia’s Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultures.

An approach that recognises and respects the strengths and contribution each individual and group makes to the Australian community and challenges bias, builds positive relationships and responds sensitively to the particular needs of each child and their family. Such an approach values Australia’s Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultures as a core part of the nation’s history, present and future

The role of parents and families is respected and supported

Parents and families are recognised as the child’s primary nurturers and teachers. They have both a right and a responsibility to be involved in decision making affecting their child.

That best practice is expected in the provision of education and care services

The best interests of children and their right to learn and develop in a safe and nurturing environment is the primary consideration in all decision making at the service and is visible in the actions, interactions and daily work with children. Programs that reflect best practice in the care, education and recreation of children set high standards and expectations for all those responsible for the delivery of the service.





Our Educators

Our Family Day Care Educators are approved, early childhood education and care professionals who engage in the principles and practices of the Early Years Learning Framework (EYLF).
Our educators provide a play-based, age-appropriate learning program that respects the culture and experience of each child. These experiences will help children build the knowledge and skills that will be the foundation for learning at school, and for lifelong learning.
