We strive to be an early childhood centre that fosters a community of learners, where children are encouraged to participate and explore, where learning is interactive, experimental and socially constructed. A child’s educational journey is summed up by Jacques Delors (1996) who believes democratic education is through: Learning to be, learning to do, learning to learn and learning to live together. In our contemporary times educators and families can work collaboratively together to promote children’s learning and development in multiple ways and to contribute to this service’s philosophy, policies and procedures. By taking a holistic approach to learning and development in early childhood, we believe all aspects are interconnected and mutually dependent. Our statement of philosophy underpins our everyday practice and decision making through our goals and outcomes.
