Angliss Children’s Centre’s Philosophy

Angliss Children Centre strongly value and respect children’s sense of belonging regardless of culture, gender, abilities, religious backgrounds and linguistically diverse backgrounds. We respect the rights of children and ensure we are providing an environment that is safe, secure and promotes equity. We acknowledge the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples as the first inhabitants of the nation and the traditional custodians of the lands where we live, learn and work

Aims and goals for Angliss Children Centre:

Goals for children:

  • For children to have autonomy and their rights to privacy are respected.
  • We provide environments that are nurturing, engaging, meaningful and also promote opportunities for all children to explore their creativity, imaginations and explore learning through play.
  • For children to be able to develop independent skills and make decisions in their own learning.
  • Children to see and feel that their voice is being heard.
  • For children to build strong trusting relationships within the Angliss Community.
  • Children to be happy, joyful, enthusiastic and enjoy a sense of achievement.

Aims for Educators:

  • Educators have a strong commitment to providing high quality care and education for all children and are committed to the rights of all children.
  • Educators provide a safe, stimulating, inclusive environment for all children, where they can learn and grow physically, emotionally, intellectually and socially at their own pace
  • To provide high quality care and education for all children. Educators have high expectations for children and believe that they are capable learners.
  • To provide a warm welcoming environment for children to feel comfortable and safe
  • Educators to build strong foundations and relationships with children, families and the Angliss Community.

Goals for Families/ Community:

  • We believe families/ caregivers/ guardians are children’s first and most important teachers as they start their individual journey in life.
  • Educators endeavour to provide an ongoing commitment to learn about local community and how this impacts children’s learning.
  • For Angliss to reach out to local community organisations which can then reflect into the curriculum.
