We believe that children are capable, independent, curious and confident learners. We encourage children to wonder, look, investigate, play and learn through active investigations in our beautiful environment.
We believe in listening to children’s voices, nurturing their growing sense of self and valuing their contributions to the world. We support children’s understanding of their role as active citizens, who are developing an appreciation for the natural world and respectfully looking after our environment.
We support families’ wishes, hopes and beliefs for their child and encourage and invite our community to participate in our daily events.
We believe in sharing our professional knowledge with staff, children and families. At all times, we strive to create a nurturing, respectful, responsive, supportive and safe kindergarten community.
NURTURE PLAY GROW
At Caloundra Community Kindy, all the educators believe in focusing on individual relationships and a child's sense of belonging.
Our educators value how important it is for all children to feel that they are in a safe environment where they are cared and loved by the people around them, where their individual needs for support, respect and friendships will be met and if they encounter any problems they know that they have people they can turn to for help - with this comes a sense of belonging.
Educators recognise that relationships within an early years setting are one of the most important aspects of enabling children to feel safe, feel welcomed and that Caloundra Community Kindy is 'their place.'
We acknowledge the traditional owners and custodians of the land and sea upon which we live, work and meet, the Gubbi Gubbi People.
We pay our deep respect to elders past, present and emerging.
