Enoggera Early Education has been established to provide families within our broader community with the highest level of quality care and education.  We believe that the family unit is the most important aspect of our society.  At Enoggera Early Education we have established and maintained a comfortable, warm and homely atmosphere where each child is valued and respected.  At Enoggera Early Education we focus on early childhood development and learning of children during their early childhood years.  We have collaborated with parents, staff and resources agencies to develop a philosophy that is relevant to all children attending the centre. It is our intention to improve the quality of life of families who use our Centre.

We believe and support a sense of belonging for all children and their families and encourage partnerships through open lines of communication.  At the centre we promote an open door policy and value all contributions of family and the community.  This input is a valuable and important resource when developing policies and learning programs for children who attend our centre.  Enoggera Early Education is a unique early education centre. With our historic building and large outdoor playground areas and large spacious inside play areas, we provide a nutritionally balanced menu and all staff are considerate of families needs, interests and beliefs.  We pride ourselves on being a family orientated centre that has a comfortable, friendly and welcoming atmosphere . We will ensure that we provide high quality care. This is achieved by following centre practices, policies and procedures that are always current and sourced by relevant and recognised early childhood professionals.

We recognise that the family unit can be represented in many forms.

No family or child will be discriminated against with all staff respecting each family’s values, attitudes, religious and cultural beliefs.  We encourage parents to contribute their skills and ideas.  We believe in creating an atmosphere where children feel comfortable to explore their curiosity in a safe environment and feel their centre is an extension of home.
We value the importance of the early years. During a child’s life there are some predictable sequences of learning and development but every child will develop at their own rate.  Every child is accepted for their uniqueness and individuality and will develop at their own pace.  Your child’s health, safety and well being is important and we will ensure your child is protected following diligent supervision and requirements according to Child Care Regulations.

Programs at Enoggera Early Education have been developed and prepared with the intention of children developing in an overall holistic manner.  All programs focus on physical, intellectual, social, emotional and linguistic development specialized for individual children.  All children are given equal opportunity to participate in a stimulating environment via play experiences.  Play provides activities in which skills can be practiced and repeated as many times as needed to gain confidence and mastery in a non threatening environment.

We emphasize that play is an important element in the program.

We  recognise children with additional needs and the importance of developing an inclusion program whenever possible with additional workers.  Children are cared for and guided in a positive way to ensure they reach their full potential.

The Centre offers a hygienic environment where children feel safe and secure.  This is maintained through the implementation of strict health and hygiene procedures recommended by the National Health and Medical Research Council.  We encourage staff, parents, visitors and children to use these procedures.

The centre has developed a nutritious menu, which provides the recommended daily requirements that are needed for all children whilst at the centre.  The centre is a member of Nutrition Australia and uses this information to regularly update menus.  Parents are requested to give suggestions into seasonal menu changes and all additional dietary requirements for children are followed.

Early childhood education and care is recognised as an important profession with respect to our future generations.  We acknowledge the rights of all children and encourage them to interact in an acceptable and positive manner.  The centre maintains a positive guidance policy where children’s behaviour is guided and directed.

The centre provides a high quality team of professionals to manage day to day routines.  Staff are required to participate in professional development and continue their studies in the interests of up to date information and maintaining high quality care and education. The centre networks with other services and child care professionals to maintain knowledge of the childcare profession. All staff are trained in First Aid and hold a current Blue Card.

The centre has anti bias, social justice, inclusive practice and equity policy and  supports all cultural diverse backgrounds.  Cultural diversity is incorporated into the programmes and through centre practices.
The centre recognises that Australia is a culturally diverse society composed of people from a wide variety of ethnic backgrounds.  Therefore we aim to help foster within each child awareness and acceptance of other cultures through integrating cultural experiences into the program.  The program actively attempts to counter much of the misinformation about different cultures that leads to racism. The centre recognises Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people were the first people in Australia and respect this. The centre will encourage, support and embrace Aboriginal and Torres Strait culture.

We endeavour to enrich the lives of children by promoting the Learning Outcomes identified within the Early Years Learning Framework.

We will provide the children of this centre with opportunities to maximize their potential and develop a foundation for future success in learning.

The centre encourages self evaluation of performance as well as family evaluation of the centre to establish a plan for continuing improvement to make a dynamic and unique centre.

We invite an active role and approach in developing the centre’s philosophy with staff and families.  We believe the philosophy is valued more if they have been invited to participate in its development review.
