Philosophy

Service Philosophy (Quality Area 7)

  • To provide an inclusive environment for children, families and educators that is welcoming, caring, safe, fun and stimulating, and supports the play needs and social development of school aged children. (Quality Area 2, 3, 5 and 6)
  • For Educators to document the children’s learning in a variety of ways, to gain a greater understanding of each child and program activities that achieve the five learning outcomes of the ‘My Time, Our Place’ framework for school aged children. (Quality Area 1)
  • To promote a positive environment where the uniqueness of each child is valued and where interest based program is designed to link the family, school, and wider community with the service. (Quality Area 5 and 6)

  • To encourage involvement by families in the service, and to reflect family structure and lifestyle, background, culture and heritage when designing the program. (Quality Area 1 and 6)
  • To encourage the children to respect the natural environment in which we live, by being ecofriendly through recycling, reducing waste and gardening. (Quality Area 3)
