Our Philosophy

Our Vision ‘Stable, Secure Education for your Children’

  • Anchorage according to the oxford dictionary means ‘the action of securing something to a base or the state of being secured’.
  • We believe all children need to feel a sense of security where they have a feeling of Belonging, Being and Becoming.
  • We believe children have the right to share their interests, ideas and have their voices listened to. We understand the holistic nature of children’s development recognising that each child and their family are individuals.

Belonging

  • We enrich children’s learning by providing a peaceful and natural environment where they are able to build confidence in themselves and their abilities.
  • As Educators, we foster the children to use their imagination and curiosity through an understanding and respect for the natural environment. Children’s learning is integrated and interconnected with their learning at home and within the community.
  • Child’s play is about relationships, involving a variety of materials, people, environment and communities around us.
  • Each child is unique with different interests, capacities, abilities and cultures. Each of these should be respected, inclusive, valued and celebrated through our curriculum and daily practices.
  • We are committed to genuine collaborative relationships between families and early childhood professionals that enhance children’s wellbeing learning and development.

Being

  • Building and maintaining relationships with others engaging with life’s joys and complexities and meeting challenges in everyday life.
  • Through our curriculum we will support the discovery of each child’s unique personality and teach the whole child to reach their optimum level.
  • We allow children to take initiative and experience freedom and play through our curriculum, while being in the present moment.

Becoming

  • With positivity, guidance and encouragement children can become all they want to be, we encourage the true nature of a holistic perspective of learning.
  • We ensure that the children are shaped by different events and circumstances. It emphasises learning to participate fully and actively in society.
  • Educators embed the practices and principles of the EYLF into their practices. It helps to extend and enrich children’s learning. It supports and provides guidance for educators to ensure children experience quality teaching and learning with specific emphasis on play-based learning.
