About us

Our vision

To be the early childhood service of choice amongst families within the City of Port Phillip, where all children experience holistic learning that is engaging and builds the foundation for success in life.

Our Mission

We are committed to providing an environment that supports all members of the service to experience physical, mental, emotional and social wellbeing

We are committed to providing the children and the families of our community with an environment in which they feel a sense of belonging.

We work collaboratively with our community and offer effective teaching and learning strategies that reflect best practice.

Our Service is committed to taking an active role in caring for its environment 
and contributing to a sustainable future. We will

actively strive to embed sustainable practices through our service operations and programming; ensure all staff, educators and children are supported to become environmentally responsible and respectful carers of both our natural and physical environment.

The Children

We acknowledge that children learn at their own pace and that learning is not always predictable and linear.

We have high expectations for every child and ensure that they experience success in their learning.

We endeavor to maximise opportunities for every child.

We provide learning opportunities and experiences within the educational program to enable children to gain knowledge and skills to take action to enhance health and wellbeing.

Our learning programs are guided by and reflect the Early Years Learning Framework and Victorian Early Years Learning and Developmental Framework.

The Family

We acknowledge that families may be related by birth, adoption or invitation and we actively seek to develop a relationship between all families and educators.

We respect every child’s first language and strive to incorporate home and cultural experiences acknowledging that cultural history shapes learning and development.

Families are given opportunities to share their culture, language and home experiences.

We work with families to support their child’s learning and development at home and in the community.

We encourage families to become involved with the Centre and welcome participation in daily activities, decisions, events, fundraising and committee of management.
