Our Philosophy

At Ewing Kindergarten…

  • We aim to create a safe, welcoming and inclusive environment where all children and families feel a sense of belonging. We want them to feel accepted, supported, respected and valued.
  • We know that families are the most important people in children’s lives.
  • We value building strong connections within our community.
  • We build on children’s strengths and interests, which allows them to become successful, competent and capable learners.
  • We believe children’s learning and development is best supported through meaningful and engaged play.
  • We support children in becoming effective communicators; expressing themselves through various means, while gaining strong foundations in literacy and numeracy.
  • We aim to empower children with the skills, learning dispositions and attitudes necessary for a happy, healthy and fulfilling life.
  • We promote mutually respectful and rewarding relationships with people who are similar to and different from ourselves.
  • We promote knowledge about and respect for the natural environment; including the importance of “Reduce, Reuse, Recycle”.
  • We acknowledge Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders as Australia’s First Peoples; respectfully weaving their ways of knowing and being throughout our program.
  • We understand and respect that children learn at different rates and in different ways.
  • We strive to deliver best practice in providing our educational programs.
  • We acknowledge, respect and celebrate the cultural diversity within our community and beyond.
  • We promote a lively culture of professional inquiry, ongoing learning and reflective practice; constantly striving for continuous improvement.
  • We treasure the spontaneity, energy, curiosity, vibrancy and joy of childhood.
