Our Philosophy

Tiny Scholars Childcare & Preschool Philosophy

At Tiny Scholars Child Care & Preschool (“Tiny Scholars”) our aim is to provide our children with a caring, friendly, safe and stimulating environment in which strives to nurture the children’s learning and development. Tiny Scholars provides play based learning with the guidance of the Early Years Learning framework (EYLF) curriculum to promote the children’s learning and developing to their full potential as individuals, as members of their family and the broader community.

Tiny Scholars are committed to ensuring that all children are respected for their individuality regardless of race, religion, sex, national origin, ability, or status. Children with additional needs are welcome to attend the centre and we aim to ensure they are treated with respect and dignity while being included in our daily program.

We value children’s’ uniqueness and nurture future growth by embracing the individual child’s areas of interest, developing respectful interactions, nurturing the child’s well-being, providing positive guidance, promoting self-help skills and teamwork.

Tiny Scholars support ongoing learning, offer inclusive programs featuring indoor/outdoor play that are flexible to build the program to ensure that unanticipated learning opportunities are not lost because of structure.

We believe that families are our children’s first and most influential teachers. Therefore all families are unique and respected regardless of backgrounds. Families are welcomed through open communication and are offered opportunities for involvement at whatever level they choose. We uphold confidentiality and privacy of all families at all times.

We aim to provide an environment that reflects the home and is safe and stimulating for the children whilst being conducive to learning. At Tiny Scholars we encourage exploration and experimentation while meeting the interests of individual children through planned and spontaneous experiences.

The centre encourages the practices of recycling, gardening and discourages the unnecessary waste of resources. We maintain a high level of hygiene to ensure a healthy learning environment for all the children.

We aim to create a strong sense of value with the community and to develop a positive and strong link between home, community and Tiny Scholars. We aim to involve the children in learning experiences that reflect the cultural diversity of our community. We aim to use community resources to aid the centre in reflecting community needs and values. We aim to be an important asset to our surrounding community.

We follow the EYLF curriculum which has a foundation of Belonging, Being and becoming. We will encourage each child to experience learning in a way that is engaging and builds success for life.

Integral to this is the developing sense of BELONGING – knowing where and with whom you belong; of BEING- which incorporates the significance of the here and now; and BECOMING – reflecting the process of rapid and significant change that occurs in the early childhood years. We aim to assist the children in achieving all outcomes from the 5 EYLF principles.

Our aim is to ensure the guiding principles of the National Quality Framework inform the delivery of our early childhood education curriculum.
