We aim to engage in holistic approaches to care and education that caters to every child’s unique and varying individual needs, inclusive of all diversities cultural or otherwise.
Diversity – The use of multicultural, non gender bias, special needs and environmentally sensitive equipment, books, music and posters also reinforces our program’s goals..
Teamwork –Our educators work to constantly improve their own knowledge and adapt their practices to provide the best standard of care for all, working as a cooperative team of professionals.
We aim to use our professional knowledge to provide the most effective, beneficial and relevant program that reflects our understanding of each child’s interests and learning dispositions.
Communication –At Canterbury Child Care Centre, we pride ourselves on forming mutually trusting and respectful relationships with all families, working together to guide children through the first years of their life.
We work to develop positive relationships with every child that promote being and belonging for all and are based on open and effective two way communication that values the input of all children, families and community members.
Life Skills – we respect the diversity in our community and aim to equip our children with the life skills which will enable them to experience fulfilling and rewarding participation within that community through innovative, best practice programs. We encourage and provide opportunities to work together cooperatively, to explore human relationships and to practice nonviolent conflict resolution strategies, as well as an environment where a natural sense of curiosity can be nurtured.
