Our Teaching Philosophy
At Kuluin we believe each child is a unique individual and that their special abilities, interests and cultural backgrounds should be the basis of our curriculum. We will work with families to provide high-quality education and care within a warm, secure environment which promotes diversity and inclusion.
We believe that relationships each child has with their families and communities are the foundation for learning, and we will use those relationships to develop our curriculum and extend each child’s learning.
We believe each child’s health, security and wellbeing underpins all learning experiences. We will promote exercise, good nutrition, sleep and rest periods. We will ensure each child feels love, security and a sense of belonging. Our outdoor and indoor areas engage every child in experiences which promote play and learning through stimulation of the senses in built and natural environments.
At Kuluin we will endeavour to build upon the child’s self-image, independence, belief in oneself and confidence in their well-being by fostering in each child a positive approach to their identity, with a sense of responsibility, self-discipline and self-esteem.
We will scaffold the education of development of each child as an individual who can grow his/her separate identity and qualities, yet still work and contribute constructively within a large group.
We will engage in ongoing reflection about our practices and procedures to drive continuous improvement and to ensure each child can maximize his or her learning opportunities, and as educators, we value opportunities for professional development.
Kuluin Early Learning Centre values the families we care for, our community and the celebrates the privilege of caring for your children.
