Our Philosophy

Philosophy

Educators here are for the children and are inspired and guided by our knowledge of current research, the National Quality Standard, and the Early Years Learning Framework for Australia, in-conjunction with our centres policies and procedures.

Children

Relationships are a key component to a child’s Development including their health and well- being. Educators encourage children to be capable and competent learners within their learning atmosphere, making sure that all children in our care are supported to develop according to their own learning style.

We recognise that all children are competent individuals who have many strengths and abilities, and learning is lifelong. Children are challenged and inspired to test their capabilities and ideas on life and the world around them.

Educators

Educators set up stimulating learning environments that let the children make choices this encourages the children to investigate and explore all essential components in building a strong identity. Play is also how young children develop their development milestones within their room atmosphere.

Educators endeavour to challenge their own professional knowledge and understanding of children’s learning, through staff meetings and on the floor open discussion with team members as we aim to enrich each children’s experiences so that they develop a sense of self-achievement.

Environment

Kiddie Academy Orange’s learning environment plays a key role to support the children to thrive as they are suited to their interests and developmental stages. Our layout of the environment promotes family grouping play and supporting between age groups in everyday routines.

Resources are thoughtfully added to the environment to promote a homelike atmosphere within a caring and stimulating environment in which all children can feel safe and secure from the strong bonding relationship they have with their room educators.

Our centre provides opportunities for stakeholders to participate, and they are accepted as members of the community by the values of being treated with respect and fairness, we acknowledge that we reside on Wiradjuri land and past on these respect with the children every day.

Families

We believe that families are children’s first and most influential educators in their life we are just the steppingstones to guide the children’s learning outcomes.

Early childhood educators work in partnership with families, we acknowledge that families come from a diverse range of cultures with differing practices, values, and beliefs and these are to be respected and honoured by the centre, educators, and program.

Our centre has an open-door policy which is always allowing families to come into the centre for what works for them to spend time on their children’s learning. For those who are unable to attend the service in person we encourage feedback through many avenues.

Community

We acknowledge the valuable contribution that the community makes on a child development, we do this by fostering the links between the children, their families, and the broader community.

We educate the principles of social justice, and we believe the importance of acknowledging diversity and showing respect for every culture to broaden the community links to enhance children’s learning and development.

Program

Educators celebrates each child’s uniqueness by understanding the planning cycle, weekly programs and individual summaries, the children are engaging in stimulating environments which encourages their essential components in building their identity.

The educational program embeds the spontaneous child’s thoughts, child’s perspective, interests, family’s aspirations, and educators’ knowledge from children’s learning documentations, all these key aspects are utilised into the creation and delivery of the program.

Our learning practice is informed by documenting our critical reflections and these practices are embedded through our Educator interactions with children and how the children integrate the knowledge they have learnt into their daily lives.
