Our Philosophy

Bimbadeen Pre School is committed to the safety, participation, and empowerment of all children, as reflected in our Child Safe Mission Statement.

We would like to acknowledge the Wurundjeri people as the traditional owners of the land our Kinder is on and pay our respects to elder’s past, present and emerging.

We are a family centred practice and believe that all children come to our service as part of a family, we acknowledge the family as the first educator for every child. Together we welcome and acknowledge the diversity of families within our community and are committed to open communication regarding each child’s progress and goals including program suggestions, sharing of talents or other interests that the family bring to our service.

We have high expectations for all children and believe all are individual learners who develop skills through exploration within a play-based curriculum. Open-ended experiences are provided to empower the children with the feeling of success and achievement providing an intrinsic motivation to learn. Children learn best through play, and we recognise that this play needs to be based on their interests, so that it is meaningful for them. It is our role as educators to help enhance and extend the skills of all children through intentional teaching methods developed around these interests.

Respect for our environment and learning spaces within our centre is a high priority as we connect with our community and the world around us, with our beliefs and practices that are sustainable.

Within the kinder and wider community, we are committed to implementing a strong program to support the principles and practices of the Early Years Learning Framework for Australia and the Victorian Early Years Learning and Development Framework.

We encourage each child to reach their potential in relation to individual abilities, learning styles and interests. Our Philosophy forms the basis of the service we provide, and we refer to it as the link between where we are coming from and where we are heading.
