Our Philosophy

We believe that all children, teachers and families should be respected and valued as individuals.

We believe that all children have a right to be part of a safe, loving, caring, nurturing, happy and diverse educational environment that provides the opportunity to set their foundations for the rest of their lives.

We believe that children are confident, capable, creative and active learners that learn at their own pace. We believe that a child centred approach to planning allows children to become competent learners.

We believe in creating an aesthetically pleasing, stimulating and child focused environment that will allow each child to grow, build relationships, respect and give an awareness and sense of their world.

We believe in creating a nurturing atmosphere for the children where they feel at home in their learning environment, allowing for a sense of belonging.

We believe in implementing a holistic, anti-bias and diverse curriculum. This will allow children and their families a sense of belonging, giving the children/families an opportunity to appreciate, understand and respect one another.

We believe in building positive relationships amongst the teachers, children, families and the community, allowing us to develop an inclusive program that is a reflection of our families.

Building relationships with children will allow us to understand and explore their thoughts, ideas, needs and interests, collaborating as partners.

Building relationships with families allows us to foster diversity and gain knowledge about the children’s family life, experiences and different values.

We believe that Educators present themselves as professionals in the Early Child Field and continue to reflect on their practices through ongoing training and development. Our Educators act as advocates for our children’s well-being and education.
