At Holland Park Kindergarten we view children as individuals and social learners. We acknowledge that children come from diverse backgrounds and bring unique strengths, experiences and understandings of their world.
In the learning environment, play is valued as a significant means for learning and allows opportunities for children to co-create the curriculum. Play can provide insights into children’s interests, skills, beliefs, joys, anxieties and frustrations.
We believe that the connections adults make with children through listening, playing, talking and questioning provide a rich and significant context for children’s learning. We consider partnerships as integral components of the curriculum and aim to ensure families are given opportunities to participate and reciprocate in all aspects of our learning community. We encourage children, families and staff to make meaningful connections and develop a sense of place within the Holland Park Kindergarten environment.
We encourage healthy, sustainable practices. The well-being of children and their development is the fundamental focus for all decision making in all aspects of the centre.
