At Tinytots Learning we believe all children are successful, competent and capable learners. Our centre is a happy place for children to come and have fun in an inviting environment.
We value children’s input in our program and assist them to build their self-confidence & develop lasting relationships.
We value the diversity that each child and their families bring to the centre and provide an inclusive environment.
Our program & daily practices are guided by the Early Years Learning Framework & the National Quality Standards. In line with this we aim to:
- Provide secure, respectful and reciprocal relationships
- Have genuine partnerships with families, where families and educators value each other’s knowledge of the child.
- Hold high expectations for children’s achievement and learning.
