“We believe in providing a warm, friendly and safe environment where children will have a strong sense of Belonging, Being and Becoming”
At Star Academy Kids we believe in providing a warm, friendly and safe environment where children will have a strong sense of Belonging, Being and Becoming (DEEWR,2009) supported by skilled, knowledgeable and passionate educators who value family and the community.
Our service provides a play based curriculum which in line with the Early Years Learning Framework challenges educators to think deeply about young children’s learning. We promote programs that reflect children’s needs, interests, and strengths so that they are actively involved in their learning.
We strongly believe that children at our service are unique and bright individuals who are entitled to guide themselves in the direction of their own learning and development by allowing them to explore, create, investigate and express their ideas whilst in the company of their peers and educators.
Families are the most important influence in a child’s life which is why we value family involvement and participation, as this allows the educators to extend on the child’s interests and abilities, so educators can achieve the best possible outcome for their child.
Star Academy Kids values and respects the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders cultures, as well as respect diversity, honour histories, cultures, language, traditions and lifestyle choices of each family. We will encourage children to value and respect each other’s differences while promoting the development of a positive self-esteem, “Children respond to diversity with respect” (DEEWR, 2009).
Our educators strive to provide an ongoing education relating to the best practices for children, this is accomplished when we get to know each child by developing trust, thus, enabling the child to feel safe, secure and supported.
Educators ensure that their professional development is ongoing and up to date by implementing a range of theorists on early childhood into the curriculum and by working collaboratively to maintain our vision and passion for excellence in early childhood education.
At Star Academy Kids we will encourage children to be respectful and sensitive to the natural environment by educating children about sustainable practices and the care of our environment and how natural systems function.
