  • Develop a strong sense of identity
  • Connect with and contribute to their world
  • Build a strong sense of wellbeing
  • Become confident and involved learners
  • Become effective communicators.

North kew kinder Principles and Philosophy 

  • Our educators take a holistic approach to learning, respecting children’s identity, diversity and culture.  
  • We recognise that children’s early learning takes place in the context of the family, culture and community and it is important that these coexist
  • We understand that children are unique individuals who grow and learn differently at different rates
  • Play is essential for the development of the child and therefore it is central to our kindergarten programs and learning environment  
  • We strive to create an unhurried environment where children learn and develop at the pace which is right for them
  • We believe in building a learning community in conjunction with our families by fostering partnerships between families and educators
