Centre Philosophy

Together Everyone Achieves More

We acknowledge families as the child’s first teacher. We believe in building and maintaining respectful relationships and partnerships and we value cultural diversity.

We acknowledge the Wurundjeri people of the Kulin Nation as the traditional custodians of the land. We believe in respecting the land, country and ways of doing and being. We value caring for our environment.

We acknowledge the Victorian Early Years Learning and development frameworks and the National Quality Standards as our guiding documents.  We believe children learn through play and we value providing a quality program.

We acknowledge that children are capable learners. We believe in the United Nations convention of rights of children and the code of ethics.  We value children as unique individuals.

We acknowledge that Sunshine Kindergarten is part of the wider community. We believe it takes a village to raise a child and we value in connecting with our community.

We promote the cultural safety of Aborigina’sl at our services, the cultural safety of children from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds and children with additional needs.
