Pre-kindy Philosophy

We believe that children are capable, inquisitive and caring individuals who take an active role in their own learning. Our Educators/staff will provide an environment which allows them to become an important and influential part of our JFC community.

Our educators will aim to develop meaningful relationships with our children so we can understand their unique needs and personalities. We also believe that families are a child’s first teachers. By developing a positive relationship with our families we can further gain valuable insight into each child. Fostering relationships with our families and children will enable us to best support each child to flourish.

We recognize that the transition to school is a major step for children and their families. Therefore we will endeavour to provide a play based program that supports children to develop the confidence and skills needed for this transition.

Through our program we will acknowledge the rich diversity of Australian culture. We will endeavour to include culturally relevant content that promotes respect for all culture and challenges discrimination. Indigenous culture and perspectives will form a key part of our curriculum to promote a positive attitude towards reconciliation. 

We will continue to review our program and practice to ensure the best possible outcomes for our children and families. We will work with our JFC community to achieve this.
