Our Philosophy

 

At Stratford Central Kindergarten we value:

 

Relationships that are:

  • Warm and trusting
  • Non-judgemental and that offer a secure sense of belonging where we listen to the points of view of others while respecting their values, ideas and beliefs

 

An Environment that:

  • Is stimulating and inviting which promotes  positive interactions and discovery
  • Has the flexibility to change to support current interests
  • Supports an awareness of what is taking place in the world around us
  • Offers opportunities for children to take risks as they set their own challenges
  • Encourages children to take ownership of their own learning

 

Teachers encourage and support children to:

  • Make choices that empower them to make their own decisions, solve problems and develop skills at their own pace
  • Recognise and acknowledge how they are feeling and express their emotions to others
  • Deal with such emotions in an appropriate way
