At Paratea we are committed to providing a vibrant and flexible environment that supports learning and responds to the interests and abilities of each child. Our Bush Kinder and nature play program encourages children’s understandings of our impact on the environment and supports our sustainable practices . Our commitment to the Marrung Aboriginal Education Plan recognises the Bunurong people as the custodians of this land. Our Reconciliation Action Plan aims to enhance our connections and knowledge of Indigenous cultures and perspectives.
Our child led program provides play based opportunities for children to grow, discover, create and imagine. We acknowledge children as capable, competent and co-contributors who actively participate in their own learning. Our inclusive program recognises the individual learning styles of all children and value families for their unique contributions to our preschool.
We value working closely with families developing our strong community culture in achieving high expectations for all children.
Our intention is to support children to be confident, kind and respectful contributors to their community and the world.
