What we believe in

We believe that every child and family is unique and are to be treated with respect regardless of race, cultural background, religion or gender.

We believe that every child will develop to their full potential when given a secured relationship both at home and at Mt Pritchard Kindy.

We believe that when your child feels respected and valued he/she will in turn be able to recognise and respect the feelings of others and to be able to have a positive relationship with them.

We believe that your child will be an involved learner when nurtured in our safe and friendly environment developing a strong sense of identity, aware of own well-being, is confident, become effective communicator and connects well with his/her world.

We believe in giving your child every opportunity to learn through play (planned and unplanned) as he/she discovers, creates, improvises and imagines. When your child plays with other children he/she creates social groups, tests out ideas, challenges each other’s thinking and builds understanding.
