statement of philosophy,

Wintergrove Education and Care Service


Our Philosophy


We believe in Wintergrove town that Children are the main contributors in building our future communities. We believe children are need to be our main focused when planning and setting our curriculum. We believe the needs of teach our children and raise them to become generation who care and respect their natural environment” green living”. We feel and appreciate our environment as well as our children and the wider community, When children are being teach the value and importance of our natural resources, they will protect it as much as they can, for example educator can explain to children about pollution and what cause pollutions, this topic can lead to increase children awareness on how to save our planet and try to minimize the factors of pollutions. We feel young children absorb everything, for this we need to model and teach them the right meanings of how we can protect our environment from endanger. In addition to teach them the concept sustainability and recycling as many people in the town works in recycling industry. The Early Years Learning Framework Learning Outcome 2: Children are connected with and contribute to their world is all about sustainable practice as well.


We believe each individual in our service whether it is the child or the educator despite their culture, religion, social-economic factors and gender, everyone have the rights to live their lives without any judgment. We believe that children will have a better future if all their rights are met, starting from learning, playing, feel secure and safe and be healthy.


WECS service is directed by Being, Belonging, Becoming, The Early Years Learning Framework and the National Quality Framework


We believe that the learning opportunities we provide for children will promote their development. Through implementing different learning experience through children day, the educator is supporting children development. These learning opportunities should be inclusive and equitable, based on children interests, needs, abilities, strengths and age. It is our responsibility as an educators to know what each child is capable of to build a suitable learning program for our children. We believe children learn through playing, exploring, experimenting and communicating with peers and educators which also develop children skills. Many sorts of plays children can engage in, like sensory play, physical play, dramatic play, creative play and manipulative play, we believe it is the educator role to encourage children to participate in learning activities, because we aim and focus on children learning.


In relation to curriculum our staff are always working to provide curriculum that foster all children development, Curriculum: in the early childhood setting curriculum means ‘all the interactions, experiences, activities, routines and events, planned and unplanned, that occur in an environment designed to foster children’s learning and development’. [Adapted from Te Whariki]


Our approach help us to form curriculum, child will be a main focus for the educator, educator will observe, record, plan, implementing and document all aspect of the child day.




In addition to educator role, families and community play a major roles in forming the curriculum, we appreciate their efforts and support to collaborate with our staff in order to plan the curriculum.


We value partnership with families. Families are the main influencer on their children, for so if families and educators work together children are going to bright and feel more confidence towards the learning environment. Our staff is available all the time for any feedback or suggestions from families and community. We also work with external support communities.




We accept and celebrate the diversity in our community which , which includes Anglo-Australians, Croatian, Italian, Chinese and a number of other cultural groups and we pay our respect and acknowledgeAboriginal peopleas the traditional owners of the land on which we work and live andalso pay respect to Elders both past and present. We provide a welcome environment for our multi-cultural community. Examples families who do not speak English will be supported by providing non-English posters to guide them or provide a translator for them.


We believe team work enhance children learning, our educators support each other to achieve their planning outcomes.
