Koroit & District Kindergarten

Our Philosophy

Belonging At Koroit and District Kindergarten we provide a warm, welcoming community where all children and their families will feel safe, secure and valued. We are committed to providing an inclusive and culturally safe environment. At Koroit Kindergarten we are committed to being a child safe environment.

We value the diversity that each individual brings to our kindergarten community and encourage families to work in partnership with us to provide the best learning outcomes for their children.

We provide an inclusive learning environment for all children and work together to accommodate each child’s developmental interests and needs.

We value the establishment of stable/consistent relationships that foster a sense of trust and security, as children who feel secure and have a sense of belonging are more inclined to be open to learning. We value the outdoor environment and encourage the children to embrace and explore their surroundings, providing opportunity for an indoor/outdoor environment. We value providing and encouraging a sustainable environment for the kindergarten community. We respect that we are all members of the wider community and encourage individuals to understand and support community collaboration.

Being We acknowledge each child as a unique individual with varying skills, experiences and knowledge. Encourage and foster an environment which encourages and supports respectful relationships for all.  Experiences will be provided that are open ended, are respectful of the current knowledge and ensure children can learn at their own pace.

Becoming

Through providing rich opportunities and experiences we will endeavour to support each child to reach their optimal development. We believe children are capable, competent beings who should be active participants in their own learning, with high expectations for all children. Educators will support and inspire children to explore, think, imagine and investigate, share ideas and thoughts.  Educators will assist children’s ongoing development through scaffolding their learning and the through sustained shared thinking.

We aim for each child to:

  • Have a strong sense of identity
  • Be connected with and contribute to their world
  • Have a strong sense of wellbeing
  • Be confident learners
  • Be effective communicators
