What we offer
We believe in the value to provide a natural environment that is warm, caring and nurturing and promotes safety and security.
We believe that children are individuals with individual needs and desires.
We recognise the importance of parent participation and the value of translating the family/home environment into the service. Therefore we encourage the contribution of family and our community.
We believe that the way children interact with the world is through PLAY. Play is the most important tool a child has in their development and understanding of themselves, others and the ever changing world around them. Important elements for facilitating learning through play are:
- Interaction with adults which is either active or passive in response to individual needs
- Interaction with other children
- Interaction with the natural environment e.g. sand, water, mud, sticks and leaves
- Stimulating experiences within an environment that invites exploration and participation
We believe that all parents, staff and children should be treated as equals and with respect regardless of culture, gender, family structure or additional needs.
We believe in the importance of fostering and encouraging respect and care for the environment and the world we live in.
