  • We believe that children must have all their needs met in order to develop as whole human beings. We believe that all children need to be respected regardless of their cultural background and their additional needs.
  • We believe behaviour management should be directed at the behaviour of the child rather than the child themselves. Children need to learn self-discipline, to be encourage to problem solve for themselves, to develop conflict resolution skills at their own level, and we need to provide them with alternatives and socially-acceptable ways to express what they want.
  • We believe that social skills are essential to how well a child adapts to school.
  • When the children have mastered these skills they will be able to develop positive relationships with other children and adults, manage conflict and learn how to express their own feelings safely.
  • We believe that children in the first five years of life are developing rapidly and require a nutritious and safe diet for the intellectual behaviour and physical development. Our centre provides food and nutrition education that is consistent with national dietary guidelines for children, state regulations food safety principles, and that is appropriate to their age, religion, cultural background or medical needs.
  • We believe children should be encouraged and supported to make their own decisions and choices and seek to actively develop positive problem solving skills in a success-orientated environment. We believe in providing children with opportunities to discover and learn about themselves, others and the environment in an atmosphere that encourages harmonious and meaningful relationships.
