THE WARWICK COMMUNITY KINDERGARTEN PHILOSOPHY
At the Warwick Community Kindergarten we believe:
That each child is respected as a unique and capable individual with their own needs, strengths and interests.
That all children have the potential to be confident, creative and independent thinkers.
That children are best able to reach their potential when families and educators support each other in an honest and open partnership.
That families should be welcomed, supported and their contributions valued.
ABOUT OUR PROGRAMME
That children learn through play.
That opportunities should be provided to explore, take risks and accept challenges, guided by educators who assess, document and communicate children’s learning.
That flexible routines and shared rituals are important aspects of the kindergarten programme.
ABOUT OUR ENVIRONMENT
That our environment is a happy, safe and secure one for families, children and staff.
That an inviting environment encourages and develops respect and connection to the natural world.
ABOUT OUR COMMUNITY
That children develop a sense of belonging when they are connected to their family, their Kindy and their community.
That our Kindy reflects the diversity of the wider community and strengthens children’s knowledge and understanding of Australia’s first peoples
ABOUT OUR STAFF
That children benefit when educators work as an effective team communicating with each other, the community and other early childhood professionals.
That all staff need to show enthusiasm for and commitment to continuous improvement and ongoing professional development.
That all staff should be positive and passionate about their work and their interactions with young children and their families.
