We believe that quality child care facilitates the healthy growth and development of the ‘whole’ child. We believe that all children are different and unique; our environment accepts and encourages children to express their full potential in all aspects of their development. Through children’s natural curiosity to explore their environment, we create a setting that first engages and then stimulates physical, social, emotional and cognitive development with a goal to maximizing their potential.
First children need to believe in themselves, have healthy self-esteem and confidence as the platform for all dimensions of the healthy whole child to be successful. The cornerstones – mathematical/music, nature/GEO awareness, whole child (self worth), early literacy & numeracy, community/global awareness and nutrition – are all being implemented with a child centered approach. We believe that our program offers each child a balance of challenging, stimulating experiences, and experiences that are warm and secure. It is essential to achieve the maximum benefit from an experience, a child must experience that they are loved, valued and cared for.
We believe that for the child to feel accepted and loved that our program must blend and enhance that child’s family experiences with their experience in the centre, thus family participation is encouraged to enhance the quality of the experience for the child. Therefore we embrace multiculturalisms and encourage acceptance that we are all different but the same.
