We believe that children’s voices are
the most important part of our programs.
The program provides opportunities for choice between indoor/outdoor play where the children’s interests are the focus and the Educators work within these interests to assist with the child’s development.
The role of the Educators within the centre is to be facilitators that guide and encourage children’s learning
at their own level through intentional teaching and planned experiences developed around the children’s interests, needs and family input.
Long Jetty Pre-School is an inclusive, accepting environment which supports the inclusion of Children with additional needs.
We acknowledge the traditional custodians and cultural knowledge holders of this land, the Darkinjung People, both past and present.
Aboriginal culture and heritage is valued and shared with the children through stories, art, music, our natural environment, ‘Acknowledgement of Country’ and enriched with the inclusion of Aboriginal culture and knowledge from the Aboriginal community, members of the Darkinjung Community and our Aboriginal families.
Long Jetty Pre-School’s Philosophy is a statement identifying our beliefs that reflect our values and the reasons behind our practices. Our Philosophy has been developed by management, educators, staff, children, families and the community that utilise our service and guides our practice and the educational program. It underpins the decisions we make, our policies and procedures and guides our educational program.
