Our mission is to work together to build a safe, respectful and nurturing environment focused on maximising each child’s sense of wellbeing and acquisition of skills for life and learning (Belonging, Being and Becoming).
Our vision is to create a warm and inclusive family atmosphere where all educators and families feel inspired to work together in a genuine partnership focused on providing a dynamic learning environment to ensure each child realises their full potential. Regardless of race, gender, age, ability, social status or family structure, our vision is to ensure each child is able to participate in all aspects of the program. We value the different gifts that each child brings to our community and embrace the many world cultures embodied at Kiddie Garden. We celebrate our multicultural roots for the wealth of knowledge and understanding they bring to our community and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultures, identities and connections to community and country are valued.

At Kiddie Garden Day Care & Pre-School we know children are born ready to learn and the experiences of their first five years last a lifetime. Our vision is for Australia’s children to have the best possible start in life.
Here at Kiddie Garden Day Care & Pre-School the children are central to everything we do. We view children as unique individuals and capable learners. We understand that children are learning who they are, where they belong and who they will become. We support this by trusting children to make their own decisions regarding their learning and individual lifestyle choices through play and routines.
We believe that families are and always will be a child’s first teacher. We also believe that every family is different with their own set of beliefs and values. We strive to keep continuity of care between home and our centre. We are constantly working towards building strong partnerships through open communication and providing support to raise their family in a happy and healthier environment.
We are actively working towards building a strong identity in the community through our involvement in events and understanding our role. Our current focus is increasing our presence both as individuals and as a centre as we feel the community gives us a sense of belonging.
We value early childhood professionals as they are the child’s second teacher who plays a crucial role in shaping children’s lives. We ensure our team is highly trained and dedicated to our curriculum. We are drawing on our previous experiences and current knowledge to form the basis of our curriculum. Educators are exploring ideas on a variety of theories. We are combining this with our implementation of the Early Years Learning Framework, as well as family and community input.
We value the role that the environment has to play in children’s learning. Educators view the environment as the child’s third teacher. We are currently focusing on developing an environment strategy for the centre to promote the environment sustainability; this will be embedded into our everyday practices.
We believe that Kiddies Garden is unique because of the passion and dedication of the educators and the constant desire to improve our practices in a way that exceeds National Standards.
Our statement of philosophy outlines the principles that underpin our practices in prioritising secure, respectful and reciprocal relationships with children, families and the community.
Our statement of philosophy guides the way we work together with children, their families and the community to co–construct children’s early learning experiences and co-create early learning environments that acknowledge and value each child’s identity.
