At the Centre we believe in providing an environment that is secure, caring, loving, nurturing and anti-bias. We strive to create a home like environment that is welcoming and warm.
We believe that all children should be treated with equality, and their cultural and linguistic diversity embraced and acknowledged.
Families are encouraged to share their culture, language and home experiences with the centre. Our emphasis is on partnerships with families and the greater community. Families are encouraged to participate in the centre and share in decision making.
We aim to provide a diverse program that reflects both group and individual needs. Through ongoing observations and evaluations, we aim to provide enriching experiences that encourage and promote learning and development. Our program not only covers the areas of language, cognitive, social/emotional, fine motor and gross motor development, but also provides for the holistic child.
Children's self-help skills and independence are encouraged. The staff will encourage and assist with meal times, dressing, sleeping, toileting and nappy changing.
Children are provided with a balance of active and quiet activities, and a rest time is provided each day. A balance of indoor and outdoor experiences will be provided.
We encourage parents to provide meals that are fresh, nutritional and well balanced. Safe food handling and hygiene practices are observed at all times.
Positive encouragement and reinforcement are used as tools to direct and promote behaviours. Through positive encouragement and experiences, we aim to build high self-esteem and self-worth.
Our program is inclusive of children with additional needs and will be provided for. Programs and plans will reflect the individual child's needs, and where appropriate resource workers will be utilised.
Staff are committed to ongoing training and learning in the childcare field. The staff meet on a regular basis to discuss issues arising in the centre and also evaluate their childcare practices.
The centre regularly observes documents and evaluates all practices, to continually update and improve the quality of service and standard of care we provide.
It is our aim to provide a loving, caring, nurturing environment that promotes each child's learning and development, self-esteem and individuality, through play!!!
