At our Forest Lake centre, Joseph Banks Education & Childcare, we believe learning is a lifelong experience that begins with parents and early childhood educators who value:
- Security: Our centres provide children with a safe, positive, secure yet engaging environment where children can feel comfortable to immerse themselves in meaningful learning experiences.
- Environment: We believe the work and play environment for the centre community should be safe, healthy and aesthetically appealing.
- Diversity: We actively support the inclusion of all children and encourage them to appreciate their own and each other’s cultural and linguistic diversity.
- Education: We plan and create learning environments that encourage your child to create, construct, explore, take risks and become a problem solver. Each child’s effort/achievement is encouraged and celebrated.
- Teamwork: We assist children to learn about their responsibilities to others, to appreciate their connectedness and interdependence as learners, and to value collaboration and teamwork.
- Partnership: We recognize the importance of partnership with families, who are the child’s first and most influential educators. We recognize the role families and the community play in the ongoing development of each child.
