  • Compassion
  • Innovation

  • Passion
  • Honesty
  • Integrity
  • Respect

We uphold processes that are clearly and concisely written. Guided by legislation, Service policy, procedure and practice. We uphold a thorough and attentive to detail enrolment process.

We advocate for the professional development and conduct of our Educators; guided by the United Nations Rights of the Child Charter and the Early Childhood Australia Code of Ethics.

Our professional integrity and conduct is modelled throughout leadership and management.

We believe learning is a lifelong process.
We believe learning is a social and shared process.
We believed that little people benefit from a range of teaching and learning strategies.
We believe learning experiences must be meaningful and purposeful.
We believe each child brings their unique background and breadth of experience to their learning.

Educators serve as a guide to children’s learning. They offer compassion and understanding to build trusting relationships, that are open to opportunities for learning. Relationships are developed organically, giving children space to form attachments and feel a sense of belonging. Opportunities for Educators to expand and share their knowledge and skills is not only an asset for them but also for the children.

Children are the reason we are here; with a child first approach we ensure each child is supported through a nurturing and positive environment. Allowing children to have a voice and contribute ideas gives the child a sense of belonging. Children are treated as equals, with opportunities to enjoy an inclusive environment that is unbiased and empowering. All children have a right to feel safe and secure allowingthem to shine.

We believe effective communication is fundamental to our work.
We believe respectful and appropriate communication with our Little People is of particular importance.
We believe frequent communication is integral to community.

Families are recognised as a fundamental part of a child’s life. Children thrive and learn best when Educators and families form strong, trusting and supportive partnerships. When partnerships reach a level of respect beyond the learning space and into the surrounding community, they create an ideal environment that enriches everyone.

Contemporary theories and research recognise and value the environment as a third teacher. Behind
educators and families, physical spaces hold the potential to influence what and how children learn.
We believe environments must be inclusive of all children.
We advocate that every child has the right at all times to feel safe and secure.

Community is a support system and extended resource. We become a part of this by being active and present members of our surrounding community.Building connections and relationships supports the learning of various cultures that exist within our community.

As a not for profit Service under the Newlife banner, we believe it is our duty to create meaningfulconnections within our community and we always challenge ourselves to find ways to be of value and service to others.

We strive to embed the culture and stories of the Yugambeh people, the traditional owners of this land, as well as the many lands our children come from as their first home and culture.
