‘The United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child states that all children have the right to an education that lays the foundation for the rest of their lives, maximises their ability, and respects their family, cultural and other identities and languages.’ (Belonging, Being and Becoming, The Early Years Learning Framework for Australia).
Our Philosophy lays in our name – BEAMS
Beams are support enabling reach and the foundation of development.
We believe in nurture and nature as the foundations for a child’s holistic development
We believe that each child has a right to develop in a supportive environment where they are nurtured, valued and respected
We believe in supported environments that offer children the opportunity to master autonomy, interests, ideas and dreams
We believe that supporting children through scaffolding, encouragement, and facilitation of their innate ability and will to learn, we are able to gear them up for a life long journey of learning by initiating meaningful learning opportunities whilst simultaneously giving time, making time and respecting their thinking
We believe in a cohesive culture where relationships with each other, children, families and the community are collaborative and respectful whilst valuing equality and diversity.
We believe that a strong partnership with families is vital in building an inclusive community within the service where children feel safe, secure and supported.
We believe each child is unique and already a confident, capable learner who with nurture can grow into a holistically balanced BEAMING, BRIGHT and STRONG learner for life!
Together we learn as we nurture through play
