Our philosophy at Red Oasis Early Education and Care is that children and families are of upmost importance. We believe that the foundations laid in the early childhood years are crucial to a child’s growth, development and sense of belonging. We have developed educationally appropriate programs that support the Early Years Learning Framework while acknowledging the importance of learning through play. Our educators are able to provide the highest quality care that is considerate and flexible to the individual needs of all children and their families.
It is our strong belief that each child is given the opportunity to evolve and develop in an environment which supports and develops their individualism as well as nurturing their strengths, aspirations and sense of self.
It is our aim to provide an open and friendly environment where all parents/educators and children feel accepted and wanted regardless of culture, religious and family beliefs, socio-economic status, gender or abilities. We believe in closing the gap between Indigenous and non-Indigenous Australians through awareness and education. We value what each individual has to offer to our centre and encourage all to share the same. We recognise the family unit as the primary educators in a child’s life and value the role of this unit in the centre’s program and policy decisions.
We believe that all children be afforded equal opportunity to access programs, resources and activities without prejudice. We offer to all children equal access to whatever it is they require, developing and growing in a way that is meaningful to them and meets their needs, abilities, talents and special requirements.
We are committed to the care of the whole child and therefore maintain strong links with the wider community to ensure that the care we provide is based on current early childhood trends and facts. We value the diversity of Australian culture and actively embrace the wide variety of cultures within our community. We aim to make the transition from home to centre as smooth and meaningful as possible for both child and parent/guardian.
We aim to communicate on varying levels with all parents their child’s progress and accomplishments. We believe in open lines of communication based on mutual respect and a desire to promote each child’s learning and well being.
At Red Oasis Early Education and Care we strive to develop trust, respect and responsibility among all relationships. We value the need of the child as paramount and strive to remain open so that all voices can be heard, all possibilities realised and all potential fulfilled.
