We welcome all families and acknowledge the traditional owners and custodians of the land; the Wurundjeri peoples of the Kulin nations on whose land we build our community today.
BPA Children’s Services and the educators at Fraser Rise Kindergarten are committed to the rights of all children to feel safe, and be safe at all times. This includes promoting the cultural safety of Aboriginal children, the cultural safety of children from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds and the safety of children with a disability.
We embrace the diversity of our local community and we value the uniqueness of each child and their families regardless of race, religion, culture and strengths. Educators will take responsibility to provide opportunities for children with all needs to be included into the program on an ongoing basis.
We wish to create an environment where children feel that they belong, can be who they are and become anything they aspire to.
We believe that children learn through play. ‘Play can expand children’s thinking and enhance their desire to know and learn’ (Being, Belonging and Becoming pg15).
When planning, educators will take into account the interests, needs and skills of the children as well as encouraging them to develop across all developmental areas. Intentional teaching is an integral component of the educational program. The play based program will remain flexible to accommodate the needs of the group and the individual interests of the children as well as empowering them to take control of their own learning.
Building respectful reciprocal relationships is important in our community. By developing meaningful relationships, we are able to encourage and foster this with our children. Educators model respectful relationships with families, children and other educators at all times. By being respectful to educators, families are reciprocating this relationship and modelling meaningful, respectful and positive relationships to their children.
Parents are encouraged to contribute and provide feedback regarding the educational program. Educators strive to develop meaningful and reciprocal relationships with members of the growing local community to enrich the programs and support children’s transitions.
Educators will facilitate respect for the environment through educating and modelling sustainable practices in our daily lives at kindergarten with the children.
Educators are committed to ongoing professional development to achieve excellence in our field.
We will be guided by:
- The Australian Early Years Learning Framework;
- Current Research;
- The convention on the Rights of the Child;
- The Code of Ethics.
We believe the primary aim of education at the kindergarten level is to develop the skills necessary for children to become lifelong learners with an enquiring mind who will be able to take their place in society as responsible and caring citizens.
