Our Preschool

Our Principles, Practice and Outcomes 

The five principles, which underpin our practice, are:

  1. Secure, respectful and reciprocal relationships with children and families.
  2. Partnerships with children, families, primary school and other professionals.
  3. High expectations and equity.
  4. Respect for diversity.
  5. Ongoing learning and reflective practice. 

Our practice is always:

  • Holistic
  • Responsive to children
  • Planned and play based
  • Filled with opportunity for intentional teaching
  • Physical and social learning environments have a positive impact on children's learning
  • Working to extend our own and children's cultural competence, valuing diversity in all forms
  • Providing for continuity in experiences and enabling children to have success.
  • Assessment for children's learning in each of the dive identified learning outcomes. 

The five learning outcomes we assess progress in and plan for are:

  1. Children have a strong sense of identity.
  2. Children are connected with and contribute to their world.
  3. Children have a strong sense of wellbeing.
  4. Children are confident and involved learners.
  5. Children are effective communicators.


Note: Each of these outcomes has several key components and subsections that are explained in detail in the EYLF book. This can be located and accessed at our Preschool sign-in shelf.
