We provide a caring and nurturing environment that enhances each child’s autonomy, creativity and self-worth. This enables children to have an appreciation of their own identity and in turn a sense of BELONGING to the wider community.

BEING recognises the significance of the here and now. We follow individual interests and allow children the time and experiences to know and learn about themselves and the world around them.

We encourage children to discuss ideas that challenge thinking through play. Children are encouraged to reflect upon their own actions BECOMING mindful and compassionate participants in our community.

Our Preschool program aims to represent quality care as set by the National Quality Standards and reflects the principles, practices and outcomes of the Early Years Learning Framework, which provides a guide for us to promote children’s learning using researched best practice strategies.

Early Years Learning Framework (EYLF)

The framework aims to extend and enrich children’s learning and underpins the implementation for programs in preschool classes. The EYLF aims for the following outcomes:

  • Children have a strong sense of identity
  • Children are connected with and contribute to their world
  • Children have a strong sense of wellbeing
  • Children are confident and involved learners
  • Children are effective communicators.
