Philosophy

Our philosophy is guided by the notion that “childhood is a precious time, a time to be honoured and treasured”.

Natural materials and children’s interests drive learning and discovery; through play and the provision of open ended experiences, children are encouraged to explore, create and invent.

High staff-to-children ratios mean children are able to pursue different indoor and outdoor interests without time constraints. On any day, children might be digging dirt, dancing in sparkly dress-ups, hammering nails, moving toy polar bears across an ice scape, eating naan bread they’ve made in front of the fire or listening to another child’s grandmother read a story.

We are a community kindergarten with a strong focus on sustainable practices. The kindergarten relies on children’s families for our management committee, working bees and fundraising. We also encourage family and community involvement in our daily programs.
