In Relation to Our Families
Our service is a community, and all our families are the foundation. We provide families with support and treat them with respect as we establish and maintain trust, which is an essential characteristic to have. Our family’s opinions are valued, and we strive to support them. Our families are encouraged to participate within our community as much as they choose to do so. Trusting relationships and collaborative partnerships are developed and maintained with our families as we believe this is an integral part of creating a high-quality service.
We acknowledge our relationships with our families and community must be a secure bond as we know children are more likely to reach their full potential when parents, educators and management work closely together.
In Relation to Our Children
Our team believes children are inquisitive and capable learners who achieve success in their own way when they are collaborators in their learning.. We listen to our children and encourage each to own their opinion and respect their decisions as they pursue their own interests.
Children have the right to learn and to be educated and we will facilitate this open-ended play and child centred experiences.
