In Relation To Children
We aim to provide a play environment where children will laugh and cry; where they can explore and experiment; where they can create and destroy; where they may sometimes be bored and frustrated; where they can get support required to manage and overcome difficulties; where they can engage in a range of play and leisure experiences that allow them to feel safe and relaxed, and to interact with friends, practice social skills, solve problems, try new experiences, and learn life skills. Our educators strive to create a home environment where children spend time developing the knowledge and skills for citizenship. We believe that relationships are fundamental to the quality of the education and care of children. We understand the connections between children, families and educators and the importance of reciprocal relationships and partnerships of learning
In Relation to Education
We acknowledge that each child is a unique individual and is to be viewed, respected, celebrated and treated as such. Children are competent and capable learners, with their own interests’ strengths and backgrounds. Educators acknowledge approaches that are culturally and linguistically relevant and are also responsive to children’s social, physical and intellectual capabilities and based on these evidences’ curriculum is developed.
We believe that children learn the best when you give them time, space and freedom from strict rules and structure. We aim to design a playful, child lead curriculum activities where they can play in the mud, make slime, get messy, play pretend, have dance parties, have picnics, laugh and joke, embrace their time and make it magical while attending our services.
Alongside the desire to deliver the best possible outcome to every child, we have linked with the Little Scientists Australia professional development program to become accredited Little Scientist House. The program is developed to provide children with opportunity to explore STEM with confidence and joy, as well as the opportunity to explore the world in a nurturing and playful setting that boosts their natural eagerness to learn.
In Relation to Families
We believe in acknowledging the original custodians of the land, the Dharawal people and their language and all the Aboriginal and Torress Strait Islander people in the community.
We celebrate differences and reinforce to build understanding between people, to be respectful and open to different cultural perspectives, to strengthen cultural security and work towards equality in opportunity.
We value the importance of family and encourage their involvement in all areas of our program. All families are welcome and are encouraged to participate in our service where all feedback and suggestions are valued and respected.
Our service supports families in their parenting role and offers a collaborative approach to the nurturing and education of the children. We believe that without a sense of caring there can’t be no sense of community and for that reason we encourage each family to participate in our OSHC community. Our open communication and open-door policy invite families to engage with the service while maintaining confidentiality and respect of privacy, which is paramount in fostering relationships.
In Relation to Our Team
Our service’s leadership and management team work closely together to create a warm and friendly atmosphere for all educators, children, families and visitors, where each individual feel valued and welcomed.
We believe that the knowledge, multicultural backgrounds and experience of all our educators and staff members will enrich the quality and diversity of our service, and the MTOP programs available to our children.
Our educators understand that children’s play is a serious learning and for that reason they broad their offerings to be responsive to children’s interests. We offer an atmosphere where children will be loved, respected and cared for; where they will be seen and listened to; where they will be lots of chances to make mistakes and encouragement to try again; where they will learn in the wildest possible way about others, and about the world.
In Relation to the Community
That which guides our philosophy in relation to our community, is the fundamental belief that the cultivation of a happy and enriched life, is not merely through personal accomplishments or material gain but also through the pursuit of sustained relationships, challenges which provide opportunity for the deepening emotional intelligence and world view as well as through meaningful connections and contributions within our communities. As devoted teachers and significant role models, we strive to inspire the young minds in our care through the demonstration of wisdom, kind acts, expressions of gratitude and our charitable and open-minded attitudes towards those who are different from ourselves or indeed, those less fortunate than ourselves. Our team believes that the Children in our care benefit immeasurably from this philosophy of community and global mindedness, not only in their young years but in the considerable years that follow once they leaveour care.
