Our Philosophy

For Children

At Pearls of Wisdom Early Learning Centre, we believe children are naturally capable learners who learn best through play and open-ended experiences.

Our goal is to provide children with a positive introduction to learning that nurtures their confidence, competence, independence, and individuality. 

The Early Years Learning Framework guides our practice to support children’s complete development (physical, social, emotional, cognitive, and spiritual) through play, positive interactions, and secure, respectful, and reciprocal relationships.

We provide children with a joyful environment where they feel welcome, secure, and supported throughout their learning journey. We foster children’s curiosity, promote learning through discovery, and encourage children to learn in their own way and at their own pace. 

We believe that every child can succeed and that diversity in ability, learning styles, or background are valued parts of each child’s identity. We value individuality, embrace uniqueness, and champion diversity.

For Families

We believe that the best outcomes for children are achieved when educators and families work together in the collective pursuit of excellence in early childhood education and care.

We view families as the most important influence in children’s lives. Our role as educators is to advocate for children, support families, and bridge the connection between centre and family life to provide consistency and balance to the child in care.

We collaborate with families on all aspects of our curriculum and actively seek out feedback to find better ways to serve the needs of the children and families who attend our service.

We offer families ongoing support and access to relevant community services and resources to support parenting and family wellbeing.

We embrace all cultures, celebrate differences, and seek to develop positive attitudes towards diversity by learning about a wide range of cultures and traditions.

For Educators

We are a supportive team of passionate early childhood professionals who believe that positive relationships, open communication, and equity are the foundations for effective teamwork.

We strive to develop strong bonds with children, families, and each other through mutually enjoyable, respectful, and reciprocal relationships.

We are role models for children who listen to one another, treat each other with empathy and respect, and value each other’s contribution and experience.

We support one another, share our knowledge, and motivate each other to explore new ideas and approaches to enhance learning outcomes for children.

We are committed to continuous improvement. We value the importance of reflective practice and continually seek to build our professional knowledge to improve our practices, relationships, policies, and procedures.
