Philosophy

At Stafford Heights Kindergarten we value each child who joins our community as a unique and complex individual. Through the development of strong and positive relationships, we will listen to, nurture, respect and guide each child to discover that they have autonomy, a free will to learn, and agency to teach.

Children learn best when they have the care of a knowledgeable and concerned adult, capable of engaging them intellectually as well as emotionally, and who is in turn, capable of being engaged intellectually and emotionally by them.

We believe in encouraging children to develop their own ideas and follow their individual passions through play-based learning, supported by a proven kindergarten curriculum.
