Early learning programs for children and families
Centre promotes children's experience of safe and caring
environments where their emotional and physical health, positively
self identifies a sense of belonging. Children should have open and
flexible environments where playful exploration, problem solving
and creativity are encouraged and purposely planned. Environments
will reflect a sense of belonging where children feel nurtured and
supported. Children's environments will be a place where their
communicative practices, literacy, and literate identities are
valued and supported.
