Centre Philosophy

Fairbairn Road Kindergarten is committed to providing a warm, caring and positive environment for everyone involved with our kindergarten.

We aim to provide an environment that encourages the child to engage in exploration, questioning, discovery, creativity and problem solving in a
co-operative and collaborative manner. We work towards providing a learning environment that is secure and stable, yet flexible enough to ensure that each child is able to build on the strengths, interests and abilities that will enable them to achieve their full potential.

Our program provides children the opportunity to investigate and explore the natural environment, learn about sustainable practices and looking after the environment.

We acknowledge that the health and well being of each child is important and the Child Safe Standards guide our practices. We strive to foster
self-worth in each child and for them to become a positive, effective member of the kindergarten and wider community. We promote the cultural safety of Aboriginal children as well as the cultural safety of children from other cultural, linguistically diverse backgrounds and children with additional needs.

We work at building strong children by supporting their emotional and social development. We put strategies in place to teach children how to become resilient, to deal with stress and communicate their feelings. We implement yoga and mindfulness in our program to equip children with the right tools to relax and be calm.
