“Our mission is to keep in mind the most important thing to each of us and that is the children. This will be enhanced by providing a happy and cohesive environment which will foster the growth of our kindergarten and staff. Leading and inspiring each other will ensure a successful and sustainable future for all”
Our philosophy at Seabrook Kindergarten is to create a safe, secure, natural, sustainable and stimulating indoor and outdoor environment where the well-being of each and every child is of fundamental importance.
We encourage our children to experiment, investigate and explore our kinder and believe that all should be allowed to discover, imagine, create, imitate, interact with others and express ideas without any inhibitions.
We utilise the Early Years Learning and Development Framework as a base for planning, promoting and assessing learning within the kinder. This enables us to have a clear focus on children’s learning and well-being as well as encouraging close partnerships with the families.
With constantly developing qualified educators who are nurturing and caring. We encourage children to be happy, engaged and enjoy learning and we aim to provide the foundation blocks for a brighter future.
