WHAT WE STAND FOR

Our philosophy

Our mission is simple: to exceed all expectations in our approach to early childhood education and care, giving children the best possible start to their educational journey.

Our values and beliefs

We value children, quality, and partnerships and strive to build respectful and trusting relationships with our children, families, and our community.

As professionals who play an active role in facilitating children’s learning, we self-reflect and strive for continual improvement in all aspects of our service.

Diversity and Inclusion

We embrace the rich diversity of our community, and strongly promote inclusion of all races, cultures, genders, and ethnicities at our centre in everything we do.

We promote a sense of belonging for all children to nurture them and ensure they feel safe and secure in their learning environment.

We acknowledge the Yuggera and Turrbal people, the traditional custodians of the land.

Community

We value how important our role is in providing a community support hub for families that goes beyond the delivery of standard childcare. We want you to feel welcome at our centre, and relaxed in the knowledge that your child is safe and happy.

From the moment you walk into our centre and are greeted by our friendly staff, you and your family will be made to feel welcome. We provide all parents free barista made coffee and a freshly baked breakfast treat every morning upon drop-off. We encourage a sense of community where parents can relax and connect with other families and our Educators.

Our curriculum

We embrace the Early Years Learning Framework’s definition of play-based learning and our curriculum is designed to inspire delight, curiosity, and inquiry in the classroom.

Our centre is structured to allow the environment to become the third educator. Children are encouraged to explore many different avenues of learning and engage in self directed play. We also provide open-ended experiences to develop imagination, creativity, and problem-solving skills.

We recognise that every child and their development is unique. We provide an environment that is responsive to our children’s capabilities in order for all children to experience feelings of success and accomplishment. Our aim is to create a lifelong love of learning, and support a successful transition to early years schooling.

Our learning environment

We have created a centre of excellence for our children, families, and community; guided by our core values and beliefs. Our large outdoor areas will capture your child’s imagination as they explore water stations, mud kitchens, adventure forts, and our veggie and herb garden. Modern classrooms are equipped with the latest technology and are designed to complement our curriculum and inspire a life-long love for learning.

Immersing children in a world of further learning

Extracurricular activities, taught by professionals in each field, are offered at no extra cost at our centre. Some of these specialist programs include: yoga classes with a qualified yoga instructor, cooking classes with a qualified chef, Japanese language classes, and sports programs.

Sustainability and our natural environment

We have a responsibility to teach children about their natural environment and the importance of honouring and protecting it for future generations, and this plays an important role in our curriculum. We place great emphasis on teaching and modelling sustainable practices, and our children enjoy dedicated sustainability and gardening programs designed to foster a love for taking care of, and protecting our natural world.

The importance of protecting our world has laid the foundations for the unique design of our centre, evident in our focus on natural materials and sustainable play areas.

Technology

We are a future orientated centre and our programs integrate and embrace modern technology which includes interactive white boards and classroom iPads.

Parents also enjoy the convenience and security of iPads to sign children in and out of the centre, and all parents have access to our Kindyhub app which gives them convenient access to view their child’s day to day progress and provide valuable input into their child’s learning experiences.

For parents

We understand that choosing the right childcare provider for your child is an important decision. We have put together a page of information to assist you with this decision.
