Our Philosophy

Children generally feel more secure and learn better when there is a predictable routine to the day. Each room of our child care centre following a routine – however it may vary throughout the year due to unforeseen weather, special events or the children’s engagement in a project.

Each room follows the general child care routine:

  • A warm, welcoming home-like environment that promotes secure, respectful and reciprocal relationships.
  • A vibrant and flexible child care environment that is rich in choices and provides dynamic opportunities for learning as individuals and as part of a group.
  • Opportunities to undertake collaborative group work and projects inspired by children’s interests and/or family interest, community or educator initiation.
  • Opportunities for children to develop independence through everyday routines.
  • A child care environment that is safe and promotes exploration, discovery, challenge and understanding of our natural and physical worlds.
  • A child care environment that builds high self-esteem and self-worth.
  • A child care environment and curriculum that promotes holistic development and high expectations for children across all developmental areas through intentional teaching and spontaneous learning.
  • Opportunities for children to express their knowledge and understanding through each of their 100 languages e.g. art, music, story, drama, construction and many more daily within our Parramatta child care centres.
  • Respect for diversity by acknowledging the cultural backgrounds, languages, values and contributions of all families in the child care centre and the surrounding Parramatta community, including Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultures.
  • Opportunities for children, families and educators to develop cultural competence by promoting positive attitudes, learning and developing communication skills and interactions across diverse cultural groups.
  • Opportunities for children, families and educators to share their ideas, knowledge, skills, culture, language and experiences with the centre through regular communication, involvement in the child care centre and program development.
  • Ongoing records of children’s development and assessment through learning stories, reflective journals, project documentation, samples of children’s work and reflections on children’s goals.
  • A child care environment that promotes positive behaviours and pro-social relationships between children and others.
  • Partnerships with families in all aspects of their child’s development including working with families to develop and evaluate goals for their child.
  • Opportunities for educators to gain further knowledge, skills and competence in the early childhood field and child care through regular staff training and professional development.
