At Inverloch Childcare we work in partnership with our community, our families and our employees to provide a sustainable, high quality early childhood education service where each child, their family and their cultural and social context is valued and respected.
To develop and maintain a high quality early childhood 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 and which values the individual child in the context of their family and community.
Inverloch Childcare strives to provide a warm welcoming environment that supports and promotes children’s learning and development, that is built on positive relationships and partnerships with children, educators, families & the community.
At Inverloch Childcare we believe that children learn best through play. We value each individual child and understand that each child will have unique ways of learning. To assist with this learning we strive to provide a holistic environment that is rich in experiences which provides 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 which fosters positive learning dispositions for life.
We believe Inverloch Childcare is an integral partner to the families and local community, we acknowledge the cultural background of our community, and continue to build professional partnerships with families and exchange information about the program and the children’s learning. We seek family and community feedback and both are encouraged to support and share ideas to enrich our program and environment.
As educators we aim to use our knowledge and personal experiences to provide high quality education and care. We value our relationships with children, families the community and each other. We follow the early years learning and development frameworks, and aim to develop and maintain respectful relationships with professionals in the early childhood field and to understand and develop best practice models.
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.
