Our Group Philosophy

At St Clare, we believe that learning starts with families and that our role as educators is to extend upon this to create a strong foundation for each child’s successful future.

We pride ourselves on being more than just child care, by working in parallel with families and the community we aim to be the ultimate option for early year’s development.

We Believe in and Support Learning Through Play

It is vitally important that children, educators and families have a strong sense of belonging at St Clare.

We understand that children need adequate time, space and support to be who they are, to imagine, to believe and to explore.

We know that children flourish when they are provided with opportunities to play, explore, interact and engage in positive communication.

Children Learn Best with Dedicated Educators

Children learn best when their educators are passionate, dedicated and committed to continuous improvement.

We value self-reflection and encourage our educators to challenge each other’s thinking to ensure the learning environment and opportunities are always in the best interest of the child.

Empower Children to Care for The Environment

We strive to empower our children to care for our precious environment through adopting sustainable practices and the provision of learning opportunities aimed at developing healthy attitudes towards the environment and sustainability for future generations.

The decisions we make at St Clare are all aimed to ensure we are at the pinnacle of early education and care for children and their families.

All Children are Active Learners

We believe all children are active learners, creating and building knowledge, confidence, social competence and independence through their daily experiences.

We understand that children need adequate time, space and support to be who they are to imagine, believe and to explore.

Our curriculum is co-constructed by educators from children’s emerging ideas and family input.

We Strive to Nurture each child to Explore, Investigate and Share Their Learning

We nurture each child to explore, investigate and share their learning and ideas with our community.

Our educators seek to develop strong attachments with each child and family to support the growth of a village for the children of St Clare.

Our “educaring’ approach identifies and embraces the individual learning dispositions of each child allowing us to support connections with their world, people and places.

Our focus is for children to be active participants within their local community and the world in which they know.
