Philosophy

At St Munchin’s School Child Care Service we acknowledge learning as a lifelong process and recognise families as children’s first and most influential educators. We celebrate the dignity values, knowledge, skills, cultural experiences and God given gifts of each child, their family and their community.

Nurturing the development of your child

We respect each child as a sacred gift from God and support all children to develop a sense of love and respect for themselves and others based on Gospel values.

Building relationships

Meaningful and trustworthy relationships form the foundation of the service at Sacred Heart. We encourage secure, safe and supported relationships between children, parents, families and educators, where adversity is respected and everyone is treated as equal.

We believe that our service should reflect the culture of the local community and commit to ensuring that all educators have a sound knowledge of each child’s background.

Programs and the Learning environment

Programs are developmentally appropriate and each individual child’s learning is planned for, documented and evaluated in response to their unique capabilities, strengths, interests and cultural experiences.

Our welcoming, open and inclusive learning/play environments encourage children to participate in experiences enlightening them to the joy and wonder of the natural world that god created, allowing them to develop to their full potential intellectually, physically, emotionally and socially.

This holistic approach to planning includes play based and intentional learning opportunities, both child and adult initiated which encompass the following outcomes:

  • Children have a strong sense of identity
  • Children are connected with and contribute to their world
  • Children have a strong sense of wellbeing
  • Children are confident and involved learners
  • Children are effective communicators

Professionalism

Our programs are delivered by professional and ethical educators who are committed to working within the National Quality Framework to provide a quality program and high outcomes for the children.

Our on-going commitment to reflective practice allows us to improve areas of need including teaching, learning and the community. We encourage participation and discussion of feedback regarding all aspects of the service and hope to make our families staff and children feel they belong and are welcome.
