Towong Shire

Our Philosophy

Council’s kindergartens are guided by the Education and Care Services National Law (2010) and Regulations (2011), the Early Years Learning Framework, National Quality Framework and the Child Protection Protocol.

Children learn and acquire new skills by actively engaging and participating in a happy and safe learning environment that focuses on children’s interests and developmental needs. We believe that children are successful, competent and capable learners.

Families and community play a major role in children’s learning and development through respectful relationships, cultural diversity and strong partnerships.

Our qualified educators are responsible for providing and guiding equitable and inclusive learning opportunities for children. We aim to provide socio-cultural approaches to learning and teaching in an environmentally sustainable way. We value the importance of building strong foundations in the early years to enhance and extend children’s learning in the five outcomes; identity, wellbeing, community, learning and communication. We strive to support a strong partnership with children through positive and nurturing interactions.

Our children are encouraged to interact with the broader community to enhance and enrich learning experiences. We aim to promote respect for our natural environment and each other. 

Council educators are committed to continuous learning of our pedagogical skills. Together, we believe and support children in becoming, belonging, and being part the broader community for life-long learning.
