Our Philosophy is guided by “Belonging, Being & Becoming” – The Early Years Learning Framework, and the National Quality Framework. This philosophy, along with the aims of Teddybears Childcare Centre (TBCCC), is achieved by following the TBCCC Policies and Procedures.
We strongly believe that early childhood education is the keystone of a child’s future. We believe it is essential that we cultivate strong relationships with families, as we work hand in hand to build a strong foundation for the children. We aim to foster children’s learning holistically, by providing a trusting, healthy, nurturing and safe learning environment where children, families and educators can feel happy, loved and cared for.
We believe that all children have the right to be treated with compassion, dignity and respect which gives them the space to develop their individuality. Focusing on equity allows us to build an environment that recognises each child as a unique individual who has the right to be accepted and valued.
We actively seek input from the families of the children at our centre, and work in collaboration with families to maintain the balance between home and care. Our comfortable and dynamic environment optimises children’s learning as they engage in meaningful, age appropriate experiences.
We recognize that children are world citizens, and are part of the local and global community. We engage with the local community by encouraging the children to explore and discover their environment, fostering curiosity and a sense of belonging through excursions, learning experiences and interactions with people in our community.
As a Community, we also acknowledge the custodians of this land, and take pride in encouraging and teaching respect for the people and environment around us.
