Children

Mimi Kindergarten believes children are unique and capable individuals, who come to our Service with their own interests, talents, skills, and ideas. We as Educators are well trained and passionate. We value, respect and appreciate this uniqueness. We believe children have a right to be active participants in their own learning and must be empowered to express their views and ideas. Mimi Kindergarten recognises a child’s opinion must be valued for its validity to their perspective and their autonomy and that initiative needs to be respected. Mimi Kindergarten will protect and cherish the innocence of children providing a safe and secure environment. Mimi Kindergarten has embraced the Early Years Learning Framework (EYLF) and educators will work alongside your child to actively promote children’s learning through worthwhile and challenging experiences and interactions that foster high-level thinking skills and promote successful learners, confident and creative individuals and future active and informed citizens.

Family

We acknowledge that family is the most important and influential aspect in the lives of young children and the significance of their relationships cannot be underestimated. We aim to ensure we involve parents and families into all aspects of the programs development and implementation. We strive to develop positive, mutually respectful relationships with each family member, as we work in partnership to achieve the best possible outcomes for all. We believe that working in partnerships with families is central to ensuring continuity and progression in a child’s learning, development and future success.

Program

At Mimi Kindergarten we feel that through a meaningful, integrated, emergent curriculum, Pedagogical Principals and the EYLF (Early Years Learning Framework) children will explore, create, discover, and imagine. Our programs will reflect planned and spontaneous experiences designed to support children’s development in all domains. Through the EYLF, the program will see Educators use meaningful documentation, intentional teaching, (it’s deliberate, purposeful and thoughtful),holistic practices, creating learning environments ,valuing social and cultural contexts that foster interactions and conversations that are vitally important to learning, actively promoting children’s learning through worthwhile and challenging experiences and interactions that foster high-level thinking skills (EYLF).
