… The Gumbaynggirr people are the traditional owners of the land where we grow, learn and play. We pay our respects to the elders past, existing and future. We recognise and embrace their spiritual connection to the land and are thankful for the care and guardianship they have given for thousands of years.

… Our beautiful, natural outdoor environment and our engaging indoor spaces provide children with the opportunity to develop their love of nature and enables children to learn ‘how’ to learn and grow into confident, respectful and resilient individuals.

… Every child has the right to engage meaningfully in learning opportunities, so we arrange our programs and practice to support the inclusion of each child’s unique abilities and individual interests to reach their full potential.

… In reflective practice and ongoing learning as a team we can continue to extend our knowledge in order to offer rich experiences for our children.
