Our aim is to help children grow to their full potential in an environment that is supportive and nurturing.
Our play based curriculum embraces the concept of “Belonging, Being, and Becoming” (EYLF), a child initiated, adult facilitated program. We support children to learn through active exploration and interactions with their peers, educators, and the environment.
We strive for a culture of mutual trust and open communication with our families. We build strong connections with our wider community, in particular schools within our local area.
Our centre provides a calm, stable, welcoming environment. We have wide, open spaces that encourage the children to explore and discover on their own terms.
We recognise that our community is a socially diverse and multicultural society. As a centre we recognise and value this diversity.
We take an active role as a community to do our part in caring for our environment and contributing to a sustainable future.
We value a team approach, where all educators are respected and encouraged to work together in a supportive environment. We encourage professional development and reflective practices within our centre.
Our Centre acknowledges the land that we play and learn on is the traditional land of the Darug people. We would like to acknowledge the traditional custodians of this land and pay our respects to the Elders past, present and future for they hold the memories, the traditions, the culture and hope of their people.
