Our mission is to provide outstanding childcare that nurtures and realises the potential within each child.
Acorn Child Care Centre Philosophy
At Acorn we aim to provide the highest quality of education and care utilising professional, highly trained and qualified educators and facilities which reflect our commitment to caring for children. We believe that all children will achieve their highest potential in a nurturing and caring environment.
At Acorn our educators are trained to respect the dignity and individuality of each child, remembering at all times the trust which families have placed in our centre.
At Acorn we offer play-based learning experiences, in which children will learn how to constructively interact with peers and adults. Children will be given many opportunities through play to confidently explore and construct ideas about the world around them encouraging lifelong learning. We aim to impart life skills consistent with each child’s development and to extend their range of personal skills.
At Acorn we believe families are the most important influence in a child’s life and are the primary source of information about their children. Therefore, we encourage parents to be actively involved in the centre, contribute ideas, and take an interest in their child’s development and growth. We believe that children gain a sense of who they are by cultivating positive feelings about their family, cultures, home language, personal identity and their heritage.
Together we can achieve the highest level of care.
At Acorn we nurture global awareness by learning to cherish both our differences and our similarities to understand self and others.
At Acorn we encourage children to respect, care for and enjoy nature by building awareness of our responsibilities to our planet. We believe learning about sustainability starts with everyday practice. We encourage active participation in caring for the environment and promote sustainable practices through educating and working with children, families and the wider community.
At Acorn we believe when children feel connected with the community they live in, their sense of well-being is enhanced.
