Our philosophy

Educational Philosophy

We exist to help guide our children to discover their own potential – to develop the confidence, resilience and happiness to belong to and shape their own world.

Our Principles

We believe in the educational and developmental power of a play based and emergent curriculum.

We believe in fostering freethinking and creative minds.

We believe in the critical role of working with families for the development and growth of the child.

We believe in developing the whole child – nurturing the child’s well being through an independent mind, a healthy body and their understanding of their place in a sustainable world.

We believe in the core principle of respect and care – for yourself, for those around you (by embracing differences) and for the world.

We believe in empowering children to be safe, happy and allowing all children to participate equally.
