To develop and maintain a high quality education and care service that is sustainable and reflects the current and evolving education and care needs of the communities of Inverloch, Bass Coast and South Gippsland Shire valuing individual children, families and their community. We are committed to providing a child safe environment where children are safe, feel safe, and their voices are heard.
Inverloch Childcare strives to provide a warm welcoming and inviting environment that supports and promotes children’s learning and development that is built on positive relationships and partnerships with children, educators, families & the community.
We believe that children learn best through play and we value each individual child and understand they have unique ways of learning. We provide a holistic environment rich in experiences and provide opportunities for each child to play, build self-confidence and self-esteem, explore, imagine, experiment, create and make decisions in a fun and natural environment.
We believe that children have a right to play and to connect with nature and the real world. Opportunities for children to engage in outdoor play, to negotiate risk and to be at one with nature are valued in our program.
Inverloch Childcare is an integral partner to the families and local community, we continue to build professional partnerships with families and exchange information about the program and the children’s learning.
As educators we aim to use our knowledge and personal experiences to provide high quality education and care we work together to achieve the highest outcomes for children constantly striving to reach new heights. We value our relationships with children, families the community and each other.
Our philosophy evolves and is reviewed regularly incorporating feedback from the children, families, community and educators of the service.
Our educators have or are working towards early childhood qualifications and all staff are required to have a current Senior First Aid certificate, Emergency asthma training and Anaphylaxis management as well as a current working with children’s check card and child protection training.
