By building trusting relationships with families and creating a positive, happy, safe, warm, nurturing, supportive, inviting, inclusive, engaging environment where all children and families are respected we can build on the strengths of each other’s knowledge to explore learning potentials in each child.
We are committed to equity and believe in all children’s capacities to succeed, we will continue to engage in professional knowledge to develop new skills. And by working in partnerships with children, families, communities, other services and agencies we will ensure we have effective ways for all children to have opportunities to achieve learning outcomes.

Our curriculum will embrace all children’s rights to have their culture, identities, abilities and strengths acknowledged and valued, we will provide opportunities to learn about and similarities and differences and about interdependence and how we can learn to live together.
We recognize reflective practice is a form of ongoing learning, we will constantly reflect on our environments, current practices, review ideas, engage in discussions and gather information that support and enrich children learning.
