Centre Philosophy

The aim of Aycliffe Drive Kindergarten is to provide a high quality innovative educational program for all children in a nurturing, trusting and stimulating environment with a focus on celebrating our families diverse cultural backgrounds and encouraging children’s individualism and creativity.

We achieve this by:

  • Providing a warm, caring and welcoming environment where children feel safe, worthwhile and important.
  • Valuing each child’s individualism through intentional teaching, following their interests, listening to their suggestions and ideas to develop appropriate open-ended and natural play experiences, fostering their creativity and encouraging their efforts.
  • Providing the opportunity for learning through child initiated play which is facilitated by:
    • extended periods of non-interrupted play
    • indoor and outdoor play experiences
  • Treating all children and families with respect to their cultural background, communicating honestly with parents regarding their child’s developmental progress and maintaining confidentiality.
  • Including all children with appropriate support for children with special or additional needs.
  • Focusing on positive reinforcement of appropriate behaviours.
  • Valuing the contribution of children, parents, committee members and staff in developing the program.
  • Using natural and recycled products where possible rather than commercially produced products.
  • Valuing our natural environment and being an environmentally friendly and sustainable kindergarten.

Within our program, we have incorporated the National Early Years Learning and Development Framework and the Victorian Early Years Learning and Development Framework.
