Our Philosophy

Glen Iris Childcare and Kindergarten embraces a holistic approach to early childhood learning, where children’s rights and best interests are paramount.

At the core of our approach to learning and care is the belief that all children ought to feel empowered, secure, nurtured and loved. We believe all children deserve choices, autonomy, consistency and access to education.

We create an environment where the whole centre community feel like they belong and are respected. An environment that is exciting, accepting, stimulating, encouraging, and reflective of different cultures, beliefs and needs.

Central to our curriculum is a working partnership between educators, families and the community. We ensure individuals values and ethics are supported and incorporated into the program.

Our teaching decisions and pedagogy are guided by these beliefs and the incorporation of the National Early Years Learning Framework.
