Our Philosophy

Our philosophy is underpinned by the knowledge that quality care in the early childhood years, as informed by the Child Safe Standards, is recognized as essential for future wellbeing and success.
We believe that children are strong, capable, and active agents in their own learning. We believe that children should experience learning that is dynamic, meaningful & holisitic.
Children have different personalities and needs and the centre shall foster the individuality of every child in our care built on a foundation of positive and genuine relationships.

Our aim is to provide quality care and educational opportunities for all children within an inclusive environment. We believe that diversity should be respected and different ways of being valued and included in our attitudes, environment and pedagogy.

Children are offered a play based emergent curriculum embedded in the Victorian Early Years Learning Framework so they may develop positive dispositions for learning, social competence, self concept and emotional well being.

We promote responsibility for caring for the natural environment and embedding sustainable practices into our daily lives.

We support the diversity of families within the wider community and value the role of family partnership and community within the centre.

Continuity of staff is particularly important to ensure a good quality program where professional development is valued. We will provide a positive working environment where the rights and needs of staff are recognised and supported.

We at Rosanna Village acknowledge that we work together on the traditional lands of the Wurundjeri people, of the Kulin nation.
