Goals and outcomes

We aim for all children:

  • to have a strong sense of identity
  • to be connected with and contribute to their world
  • to have a strong sense of wellbeing
  • to be confident and involved learners
  • to be effective communicators

Our philosophy

Wales Street School Age Care provides an inclusive program with a holistic approach that focuses on the child. We provide a nurturing, secure, healthy and safe environment that enhances each child’s self esteem, self confidence and emotional well being.

Our program culture is reflective of each child’s individuality and uniqueness, in order to further nurture their sense of wellbeing, connectedness and identity. We have a collaborative approach that’s inclusive of the cultures, beliefs and values of our children, their families, and our educators.

Our emergent curriculum is formed from children’s needs and interests. We believe that all children will become confident and involved learners through active participation and involvement in play. We always encourage children to enjoy their time within the program and are respectful of the choices they and others make.
