Every opportunity to make friends
Children become confident learners when they feel secure, when we recognise their strengths, and when we value their interests.
Every opportunity to be themselves
When children feel confident and secure they reach out, interact, and develop friendships that can last a lifetime.
Every opportunity to play
Encourage children to be children by allowing them to enjoy who they are, here and now.
Every opportunity to belong
Children explore, discover possibilities and learn to understand their world through play.
Children come to feel they belong by forming secure relationships with their family, their community and their heritage.
