Mitchell Street Child Care Centre Philosophy Statement:
Mitchell Street Childcare Centre aims to provide high quality care for each child in a safe, nurturing, stimulating and happy environment; reflecting individual and group respect, needs and cultural diversity for all staff, children and families in our service.
Each child will endure positive experiences and activities with an education, age and developmentally appropriate, fun and enriching program catering for fine and gross motor skills, cognitive learning, social skills, dramatic play, music and movement, language (including teaching children Indonesian), science and mathematical concepts, health, hygiene, nutrition and self-help practices.
We believe open, honest and effective communication between our families and our team of early childhood educators will build a trusting and responsive environment between children, families and staff: creating a fulfilling environment in which children can play and learn.
