Here at Quality Kids Childcare and Kindergarten we believe every child deserves a learning journey that builds their confidence, a strong identity, a resilient mind, a sense of community, a positive wellbeing and be able to communicate using language that supports their needs. The first five years of a child’s life is where immense learning and development is gained through play and educational guidance. (Philosophy displayed with each area linking to what we do/offer)
We use positive and welcoming language to speak to children, co-workers and families promoting a positive approach to behavior management and being respectful to everyone’s home language which is included in our day to day learning environment. At Quality Kids we are fortunate to have educators who are trained in AUSLAN and use this across all our rooms to provide communication for everyone, we also work closely with families and incorporate their home language into our everyday communication.
Our families are the most important influence on the children we care for and are viewed as the primary information source. This knowledge is used to provide a family like environment and to scaffold the children’s learning through planned and spontaneous experiences. Using predictable routines promotes an environment that fosters the children’s learning and development.
We strongly value and respect children’s cultural and religious backgrounds and believe all children should be treated with equity, regardless of gender, culture, religion and abilities. We acknowledge our traditional owners of the land, the Wurundjeri people, we respectfully recognize the elders of past and present. We enable and encourage our families and the community to build a strong sense of belonging to our centre and through a variety of methods promoting strong partnerships. Holistic learning occurs as children and adults work in partnership, respecting each other’s values and beliefs as part of a strong and supportive community.
We provide a safe, secure and nurturing environment, we do this by ensuring that resources and experiences are open ended and age appropriate.
