OUR PROGRAM

Image

Our service is committed to best practice and continuous improvement through reflective practices. This will be achieved by positive open communication with children, educators, families, school and the community.

We acknowledge the Darug people, the traditional custodians of this land. Through our daily program and practice we aim to promote a greater understanding of the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples perspective

 

Educational Program and Practice

At our service we promote a strong sense of belonging, being and becoming through our diverse, enriching, stimulating and safe environment which is supportive of exploration, discovery, growth and spontaneity. We take a holistic approach by focusing attention on children’s physical, personal, social, emotional and spiritual well-being as well as cognitive aspects of learning and development. We provide meaningful opportunities for children to make sense of their social worlds whilst engaging actively with people, objects and the environment.

Our educators demonstrate through their daily practice the rights of the child, set out by the United Nations Convention to relax, play, experience a wide range of cultural, artistic and leisure activities, to be active participants in all matters affecting their lives and to respect their family, culture, other identities and language.

We actively value and support the interest and needs of all individuals within our service. We aim to foster a culture that promotes inclusion, friendship and respectful relationships through positive communication and guidance.

At our service we believe that children are capable, competent, and active learners and our educators strive to capitalise on opportunities to extend learning. We seek to encourage lifelong learning and for all children to reach their full potential today and in the future.

We place great emphasis on respect for the natural world we live in and are committed to making it a better place for the future through sustainable practice. We value the importance of learning about environmental awareness which provides opportunities for children to develop into concerned and contributing citizens.

As a service we as are committed to continuous improvement. Reflective practices underpin our ongoing cycle of planning and programming so that we continue to develop effective ways to enhance children’s learning and wellbeing. We achieve this through positive and open communication with children, educators, families, school and the community.
