Philosophy

Welcome to Kelvin Kindergarten!

At Kelvin Kindergarten, our small and unique centre not only accommodates the differences in each child, but fosters their individuality by addressing the needs of the whole child, physically, mentally, socially, emotionally, spiritually and culturally.

We provide a secure, friendly, nurturing environment in which every child is encouraged to reach their full potential. This happens with the help of staff provocations, stimulating planned and incidental experiences and from acting on our community’s voices as a whole.

We promote the development of self-confidence by ensuring every child is heard, respected, allowed freedom of choice, given individual care and protection and gently guided through their journey at Kelvin Kindy. We embrace diversity in all forms and promote cultural awareness. We offer spontaneous experiences, which are child centred, interest-driven and educational, so the children learn as they have fun! These educational opportunities encourage discovery and aim to cultivate a lasting love of learning.

We endeavour to teach the children about their world and to care about green and renewable energy. We feel our responsibility lies in teaching the child to be efficient communicators, active learners and to feel they have a connection with their world. This in turn supports our centre and each individual educators personal and professional philosophies, that given the child a sense of belonging, they will feel free enough to be happy with who they are and also become something wonderful!

Through play and continuity of learning, children gain confidence in their abilities, develop social skills, manage frustrations, exercise their imaginations and learn about the world around them.

Our priority is the fulfilment of the needs of the children, their families and our staff, to the highest standard.
