The NT Explorers Way
We create a place where children's learning is underpinned by the Early Years Learning Framework. The Framework's vision is that all children experience learning that is engaging and builds success for life. Fundamental to the Framework is a view of children's lives as characterised by Belonging, Being and Becoming*.
Our culture Framework is SWEET, which supports our educators to be the best they can be both as citizens and educators. Our respect for the intrinsic value of early childhood education is matched by our commitment to the provision of high quality learning and support opportunities for our educators. Our continuous learning through exploration, play, experiences, reflection and professional inquiry helps us reach our full potential.
We create an environment where children, educators and families have a sense of belonging by providing a platform of understanding, support and acceptance. We have respectful, open and caring relationships with families which is vital to our shared education of the children in our care.
We believe in the principles of the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child that provides for children to receive an education that lays a foundation for their lives, and importantly their right to play and to be an active participant in all matters affecting their life.
As citizens of the world, we create an inclusive and non-biased community, which respects all others and fundamentally believes that we can make the world a better place by helping those in need.
We believe we are all keepers of our planet, and foster children to understand their environmental responsibilities, through experiencing and exploring the wonders of the world around them.
As educators, the momentous reward for our pursuits is knowing that we are helping children commence a life-long educational journey, so they too have the opportunity to enjoy a rich, meaningful, and wonderful life.
Our organisation is committed to being the best we can be, respecting our integral role as holistic educators of children as citizens of our community, our world and our planet.
