Our philosophy is expressed through many parts that are individually important but the most impacting aspect of each part is their interconnectedness with each other. Each part of our philosophy is made visible through our shared values that are woven into our everyday practice.
Consistency brings unity, stability and security. Families, children and team thrive when response, approach and expectation are reliable.
We strive to value and protect all people, places and things. Our culture of respect is founded by relationships and actions that are inclusive, respectful
We show grace when under pressure. We are brave enough to confront our fears and step outside our comfort zone in order to advocate for children, each other and the community.
All people matter to us and are at the heart of what we do. We are therefore consistently open, honest, ethical and genuine.
Passion is an intrinsic motivation that drives us to do our absolute best. It is a dedication to advocating for best outcomes for children and their world.
In the spirit of respect, Kardinia Childcare and Kindergarten recognises the Aboriginal Peoples of Australia as the Traditional Custodians of the Land. We pay our respects to them, their culture and their Elders past, present and future
