We at Kids United believe in a Child-Centred approach whenÂ planning for young children. We believe children develop best in aÂ safe, secure environment that is stimulating, supportive,Â encourages and allows endless opportunities for exploration andÂ investigation. We understand that families are childrenâ€™s mostÂ influential teachers and aim to build partnerships with all familiesÂ based on the foundations of respect and understanding. We believe that each child is an individual and holistically look at each childâ€™s unique sense of being and diverse sense of belonging when planning for the environment.
The learning environment will provide children with opportunities to freely explore, discover, improvise, investigate, imagine, experiment, and interact safely.
Overall, children need to be encouraged for all of their efforts.Their natural curiosity and creativity will be fostered to enhance aÂ greater enthusiasm for learning through enjoyment. Therefore, ourÂ program allows time for children to immerse in their play, enablingÂ them to simply enjoy being as Educatorâ€™s respond to children byÂ scaffolding their learning and using intentional teaching strategies.Â Our educational policy aims to provide a Quality educational program for each and every child based on the Early YearsÂ Learning Framework for Australia. We strive to extend and enrichÂ childrenâ€™s learning through their early years. For the benefit of bothÂ the children and Educators, Educators will constantly update theirÂ knowledge and understanding of current developments in the EarlyÂ Childhood sector through sharing of information and ongoingÂ reflective practices.
We believe that families have the most important andÂ enduring relationship with their children and seek familyÂ involvement in all facets of our service.
We believe that through teamwork, which involves families andÂ Educators working together, we can provide our children with theÂ best quality care and education possible. We understand theÂ importance of continuity of learning, transitions and care and withÂ this in mind aim to build a respectful understanding of each childâ€™sÂ family and community.
We will support and promote cultural competence and anti-bias within our centre.
All persons who interact with or attend the centre will be valuedÂ and respected as individuals, regardless of race, colour, gender,Â ability, religion, socio-economic status, family structure or age.
