Educational Philosophy

At Dandenong Ranges Childcare Centre we adopt a holistic view in caring for and educating children. We aim to provide all children with the opportunity to reach their full potentials by providing a safe and supportive environment and using stimulating play to spark their natural desire to learn.

Across all age groups our educators create a variety of experiences that provoke thought and exploration, whilst ensuring there is a balance of self-discovery and positive guidance from influencing adults. We ensure that all children can be interactive and have their voices heard within the program by providing them with a range of open ended experiences.

Our educational programs are ongoing and reflective of each child’s individual needs, strengths, interests and challenges. They focus on the fundamental areas of learning and development whilst being entirely play based and engaging for the children.

Our educators utilise an online method of programming to ensure that families have access to their child’s learning stories, photos, daily routines and journals at all times.
