“The philosophy is the ‘why’ behind your work with children, their families and each other. It is the combination of your beliefs, values and hopes for the educational program that you provide and its outcomes.”
Early Childhood Australia, Revising the service philosophy, 2012


At the heart of our philosophy is the importance of acknowledging the child’s rights, well-being, emotional and individual needs.

Our vision is to prepare children to build a strong identity and become a citizen who is competent for lifelong learning, and is confident and resilient with respect for themselves, the wider community, and the environment.


Our mission is to provide a nurturing, stimulating and fun playground (Noriter!) that where children, their families and educators feel safe, make memories, and enjoy a sense of belonging.



​In relation to children;

  • We place the safety and wellbeing of the children first in everything we do.

  • Children are capable, strong individuals who have their own unique way of being expressive.

  • Children have the right to express themselves and make decisions with regards to their own learning and well-being.

  • Children learn best working with others: with other children, family, educators, and the community

  • Children can develop confidence and positive self-esteem through a supportive and secure relationship with educators.



In relation to families;

  • We hold the highest standard of integrity, empathy, and treat everybody with respect and dignity.

  • Families are the primary influence on their child’s learning and development.

  • Families provide ideas and skills, which make them active partners in the children’s learning.

  • We foster a strong relationship with parents, educators, and community.


In relation to educators;

  • Educators bring their own culture, beliefs, expertise and a passion for learning into our centre.

  • Educators value children’s creativity, imagination, and curiosity.

  • We support Educators furthering their education and extending their knowledge of the early childhood profession.

  • We commit to use recycled, reusable, natural and sustainable resources.

“I’ve come to a frightening conclusion that I am the decisive element in the classroom. It’s my personal approach that creates the climate. It’s my daily mood that makes the weather. As a teacher, I possess a tremendous power to make a child’s life miserable or joyous. I can be a tool of torture or an instrument of inspiration. I can humiliate or heal. In all situations, it is my response that decides whether a crisis will be escalated or de-escalated and a child humanized or dehumanized.”
