Centre Philosophy

At Yarraville Community Kindergarten we have a shared understanding of our core values and beliefs. These include respect, friendships, care, nurturing, inclusion, diversity, fairness, empathy and equity. These values are an integral part of our learning environment.

We believe children are active contributors within many communities and that by creating strong partnerships with local agencies, professionals and businesses; we can support children with their learning. We recognise and acknowledge the Wurundjeri people as the traditional land owners.

Within our duty of care we believe in the rights of all children to feel safe and be safe, as outlined in the Child Safe Standards. This includes promoting the cultural safety of Aboriginal children, children from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds and the safety of children with disabilities.

Our educational program is run as an emergent play based program, where we believe children learn best by engaging in purposeful play. Intentional teaching is embedded into our program with influences from the children’s interests. We plan for both individuals and group learning. The Victorian Early Years Learning and Development Framework guides the planning and implementation of our curriculum.

Through sustainable practices, we guide children to learn and respect the world in which they live in.

We value our families as the children’s first teachers. We believe in having a shared responsibility for their child’s learning and development. We work collaboratively with families, valuing their ideas and contributions to our program. We value diversity, and share in celebrations relevant to our community.

We believe in the professional development of educators and that learning is an ongoing journey. We strive to provide a quality educational program.
