Our new Mission Statement and Core Values

Thank you so much to all the families, teachers and community members who have contributed to our amazing Mission Statement and Core Values!  

Mission Statement
We work with families to grow children who are happy, independent and secure in themselves.

We do this by nurturing our children and their learning through respectful and reflective practice, creative inquiry and engaging with our unique natural environment.

Core Values 

Creative Inquiry
We believe that children should be free to explore their interests in a way that evolves without predetermined outcomes, and that child-led discovery enables creativity and learning that is shaped collaboratively.

We are committed to creating an environment where children have the freedom and security to be themselves and where happiness and fun are highly valued.

We believe in showing thoughtful awareness in our interactions and communication with all people and the environment.

Reflective Practice
We are committed to ensuring that there is consideration, planning and review supporting children’s explorative play, with a comprehensive understanding and demonstration of best practice.
