We value early childhood education as the foundation for lifelong learning. We believe that each child is a unique individual and should be viewed, respected and treated as such. As the welfare and wellbeing of each child is paramount, we strive to provide holistic support of the child’s exclusive requirements and interests in a nurturing, familial environment that fosters the child’s development across all developmental domains.
Our early learning context supports scaffolding children’s learning and development through quality interactions with peers, parents and educators in the overall attempt to pave the way for an exploratory understanding of themselves, the world around them and their place in it.
Our educational programs are reflective of emergent curriculum and adhere to guidelines set by ACECQA, National Quality Framework and The Early Years Learning Framework, taking the child’s developmental level into account. Our programs are completed and implemented daily.
All staff strictly abides by a specialised code of ethics, ensuring that duty of care is successfully honoured at all times.
Partnerships with families provide us with invaluable information relating to cultural backgrounds and heritage. Carers strive to build relationships with families based on co-operation and a mutual respect for the reciprocal roles that each play in the lives of the child. Partnerships with families are developed through daily discussion, newsletters and meetings. Moreover, Kiddie Academy’s open door policy aims to facilitate an open flow of communication while maintaining confidentiality and respect of the privacy and wishes of each family, resulting in the highest levels of customer service.
Partnerships with industry professionals assist staff development and expansion of the curriculum to meet the individual and collective needs of all children. Needs based on cultural identity, additional support education and medical interventions which all require greater individual knowledge and supported cooperative teams, assures all children are facilitated in an inclusive environment as best as possible.
We believe that early childhood is a celebration of learning and honour of diversity that when valued and nurtured appropriately, fosters individuals that can positively contribute to their community and the greater society

As an Early Childhood Educator at Kiddie Academy, Mudgee I believe that each child is a unique individual who needs a secure, caring and stimulating atmosphere in which to grow and mature emotionally, intellectually, physically and socially.
As an Educator I will always strive to follow the Early Childhood Australia Code of Ethics, to commit to respect and maintain the rights and dignity of children, families, colleagues and communities.
It is my desire as an Educator to help your child reach their full potential by providing an environment that is safe and supports the sharing of ideas to which enables your child’s natural curiosity to direct his/her learning whilst promoting respect for all things and people.
Helping children to develop a deep love and respect for themselves, others and their environment through an open sharing of ideas and a judicious approach to discipline. When each child is heard an environment evolves where children feel safe to express themselves and grow into confident, respectful human beings.

Every child will be treated equally.
The children’s strengths will be nurtured in guidance with the Early Years Learning Framework. We will foster the diversity within the room remembering that all children are unique and learn differently.
We will provide encouragement for the children to further develop themselves as a whole focusing on the value of collaborative learning in a positive social setting.
In-regards to the families we will implement their experiences into the learning environment through written and verbal communication. We will also positively interact and communicate with our families to alleviate any concerns that may hinder the atmosphere of the environment.
We will liaise with the community and encourage their participation within the environment to promote more diverse learning within the broader community setting.
We will foster and promote the guidelines towards the children, families, community, staff and the centre as set out in the ECA Code of Ethics. We believe that implementing these guidelines into our environment facilitate a positive learning experience for all involved.
