Philosophy

At Valla Community Preschool we believe that children should be connected to family, community, culture and place.

We believe that children grow and develop in interaction with others and the things around them.

We embrace the Australian Early Years Learning Framework and current knowledge that children: actively construct their own understandings and contribute to others’ learning; recognise their capacity to initiate and lead learning; have rights to participate in decisions that affect them and their learning; and that play can expand their thinking and enhance their desire to know and learn.

We encourage respect for children and strive for positive relationships between children and adults. We know that children need to feel safe and secure in order to learn, take risks and to explore.
