Quality Care and Education from 3 Months to 5 Years

Our Philosophy

  • We strive to provide a nurturing, stimulating and secure environment for all the children in our care.
  • We understand and value the importance of play and aim to provide enriching experiences that encourage and promote learning.
  • We are guided by the Victorian Early Years Learning and Development Framework and the Early Years Learning Frame work for Australia that describe childhood as a time of Belonging, Being and Becoming. Both documents provide staff with principles, practices and learning outcomes that support their work with the children.
  • Each child is an individual with unique interests and abilities. Our curriculum provides children with opportunities to learn new skills and knowledge with a balance between child initiated play and adult supported experiences.
  • The children that attend the centre come from many different backgrounds and have differing needs. We welcome diversity and throughout our curriculum facilitate acceptance, understanding and knowledge of difference in its many forms.
