Learn and Play Kindergarten is family owned and has been operating for over 39 years. We strive to create a loving, caring and stimulating environment, which fosters positive attitudes towards learning, high self-esteem, self-confidence and independence. We aim to make these years some of the best years of your child’s life.
At Learn & Play Kindergarten, we believe that each child is a unique individual with a wealth of prior knowledge and learning that has been influenced by family, social, cultural and community experiences. Our staff respect and value this prior knowledge and learning ensuring that programming planning builds on this shared information between parents and staff. This creates a link between past experiences, familiar cultural practices and future experiences.
We believe that a positive self-concept is the foundation for successful future learning. We are committed to enhancing children’s self-esteem through daily interactions, developmentally appropriate experiences and relationships based on mutual trust and respect. We strive to create a loving, caring and stimulating environment, which fosters positive attitudes towards learning, high self-esteem, self-confidence and independence.
Explore, create and experience
We recognise that play is central to an effective early childhood curriculum. We plan and provide learning experiences that allow children to explore, create, experience, make choices and achieve a sense of independence, we recognise and support each child’s intrinsic motivation, natural curiosity, active involvement and desire to learn more about the world around them.
By providing a comprehensive developmentally appropriate program, staff assist and encourage each child to develop to their highest potential in relation to a strong sense of identity, connecting with and contributing to their world, having a strong sense of wellbeing, being confident and involved learners and effective communicators.
All the children at our centre are treated with respect and dignity. We reflect a multicultural perspective and show acceptance of all people as equal. We aim to foster within all children awareness and acceptance of each other, of other cultures, and of special needs groups. We seek to recognise, appreciate and respect the uniqueness of each child, and to pave the way for each individual to begin to achieve their life goals.
Building positive relationships with families
We recognise staff as our most precious resource. We believe that together, the staff and parents create partnerships that provide for the best interests of young children and families. We strive to develop positive, supportive relationships with families based on open communication and sharing of knowledge and skills.
At Learn & Play Kindergarten, our philosophy has been developed in consultation with staff and parents. It truly reflects the values and beliefs that guide our attitudes, behaviours and practices, in relation to high-quality practices and early childhood education.
