Our Philosophy

We believe that children learn best through play, in a safe, secure and supported environment. Through play each child is able to discover, explore, create, improvise, problem solve and imagine.

Our environment is designed to be a place for development, where opportunities are provided for children to socialize, develop respect, empathy and to build upon and promote self esteem. We learn about ourselves, other people and the world around us.

Each child is a valued member of our group and many opportunities are provided for your child to work with others in small, large groups or independently, taking into account their backgrounds, interests, strengths and abilities. Encouraging each child to be actively involved in their own learning Children’s safety is paramount.

We promote education and respect for our natural environment and encourage reusing and recycling.

Family and our community involvement are also an important part of our program, with many opportunities available to become involved.

We value our community and the knowledge, skills and resources of parents, families, educators and the broader community. Our larger community brings with it a diverse range of life experiences, perspectives and skills that can be drawn upon to enhance and enrich the lives of all those that are involved with the Preschool.
