Philosophy

At Waratah Preschool we value the joy, inquisitiveness, and sanctity of childhood. Our program is influenced by The Early Years Learning Framework and the Reggio Emilia approach, recognising the capabilities and competencies of every child.

We believe:

  • rituals provide meaningful connections with educators, children and families.
  • a holistic approach to supporting and learning is paramount to nurturing a child’s physical, emotional, social and spiritual wellbeing.
  • close, inclusive and reciprocal, meaningful relationships are paramount.
  • in embracing diversity, respecting culture, language and celebrations.
  • in embracing the uniqueness of each child and supporting and guiding their own awesomeness.
  • children and educators have a right to feel safe, secure and supported.
  • all children thrive in an aesthetically pleasing environment with art forms, whimsy and unique items.
  • sustainability practices empower children to be leaders for change.
  • in fostering a community spirit.
  • in critical reflection to drive continuous improvement to achieve team and personal goals.
