Our Childcare Philosophy

Children In Childcare

We recognise and value our moral obligation to act with professional integrity as advocates on behalf of children. We strive to provide a safe, respectful and compassionate environment that recognises children as people with valuable views and interests to ensure children feel noticed, heard and understood while receiving the best possible educational program to support their emotional and social development.

Families In Childcare

We value speaking with families regarding their needs and interests through conversations that are truthful, gentle and helpful.

Educators In Childcare

We believe children and educators are companions on the magnificent journey of childhood. Child’s Play endeavours to inspire and nurture the professionalisation of educators. We are committed to developing and empowering our staff to become leaders in the profession of early childhood education.
