We believe that all children have a right to the best start in life so that they can create a better future for themselves and their community.
All community members are entitled to quality teaching and learning.
We will continue to place a specific emphasis on experiential learning and recognise the importance of communication and language development.
We will continue to believe in the importance of social and emotional development.
We recognise that families are children’s first and most influential educators, and we will work with them collaboratively in the development of all our children.
We will continue to assert and enable children’s rights to have access to education that lays the foundation for life long learning and maximizes their ability, and respects their family, cultural and other identities and languages.
We will continue to recognize children’s rights to play and be active participants in all matters affecting their lives.
We commit to improved outcomes for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander young people and all the children in our harder to reach communities within Australia.
