Centre Philosophy

We the Parents, Committee of Management and Educators of Alexandra Avenue Children’s Centre Inc believe there are fundamental elements in providing every opportunity for children to realise their potential.

We aim to provide High Quality Child Care which aims to meet the needs of families and children.  This includes believing that all children are individual’s and their learning is dynamic, complex and holistic.

We believe the learning environment needs to be nurturing and engaging in order for the children to build a successful life.

We believe that children learn through play and relationships formed with families, communities, cultures and places giving them a sense of Belonging, Being and Becoming.

We believe that Educators promote children’s learning by the principles and learning outcomes outlined in the Early Years Learning Frameworks – Belonging, Being and Becoming and the Victorian Early Years Learning and Development Frameworks.
