Hills Community Child Care Philosophy
In Relation to the Centre
Hills Community Child Care (HCCC) aims to provide an environment where children and carers are happy, safe and feel comfortable.
In Relation to the Children
HCCC aims for children to enjoy their time at the centre. Children will be encouraged to participate in a variety of activities both as individuals and in groups, with the intention of fostering the development of self confidence and new and lasting friendships. Children are offered opportunities to explore, discover and create.
In Relation to our Program
HCCC’s program is provided in a positive, warm, safe and caring environment where children’s rights are acknowledged and the individuality of each child is recognised. HCCC’s planned activities are designed to foster and promote the best developmental outcomes for children. They support each child’s physical growth and independence and the development of thinking, social communication and language skills. HCCC understands the importance of a child’s early years as the basis for a sound future by:
- building positive attitudes
- developing a healthy self esteem
- encouraging natural curiosity and exploration; and
- providing encouragement and carefully planned environments designed to foster independence, choice, confidence and competence.
HCCC acknowledges the cultural, ethnic and lifestyle diversity of families within our community and is sensitive to the individual needs of all children attending the centre. HCCC aims to establish open relationships with parents so that they can feel confident that their opinion is listened to and valued. The HCCC committee and carers look forward to working in partnership with families to provide the best possible environment and outcomes for children.
