Redlynch Kindergarten Philosophy
Redlynch Kindergarten aims to provide a warm, friendly, caring and safe environment in which each child is given the opportunity to develop socially, emotionally, physically and intellectually through interaction with staff and peers. The centre is child based and our educational programs will provide and reflect the multi-cultural nature of society, this includes implementing an anti-bias curriculum where all children are treated equally regardless of race, gender, culture, ability, socio-economic background and beliefs.
We acknowledge each child is unique and develop at various paces, levels and stages. We understand children have individual strengths, weaknesses and interests. The staff will assist in scaffolding children’s growth and learning through one on one interactions and experiences. We believe that by educating the children to make good choices in all areas of their play, and healthy choices when teaching children about healthy lifestyles is a valuable part of their learning whilst in these early years. We believe as carers, educators and role models, promoting each child’s individuality, positive self-esteem and feelings of self worth is paramount for learning and life. We recognize that parents are the principle influence in their child’s life, and therefore we strive to develop close links with families and carers, so we can support and complement each other in the important role of nurturing children through their early childhood years.
