Our education and care service philosophies are a living document that reflect the knowledge, beliefs and values of our educators, children, families and the wider community. The Children’s Services Community Management (CSCM) Mission Statement is the overarching statement that supports and shapes each individual services philosophy. Each service has unique characteristics and cultures which provide the rich context for their philosophy, curriculum, programs and ways of being.

The best interest of children is our primary consideration when referencing and reflecting on our educational programs. We acknowledge that the rights of the child are to be upheld in our daily practice, routines, experiences and events. This includes evaluating daily practice, the timing of routines, the development of programs and the organisation of staff.
