Philosophy

At Epping Views Kindergarten, we highly value honest and open communication between staff, children and their families. We highly regard the connection and involvement we have with a range of different community groups and organisations, including Whittlesea Council, Child and Maternal Health, Epping Views Primary School and local businesses and services, as well as families of the children in our care.

We believe staff, children and families should experience a positive and inclusive environment of respect and trust, regardless of their differences. Everyone has the right to a warm, caring environment that is safe, secure and hygienic. It is important that children are engaged in their learning through a range of indoor and outdoor play and learning experiences.

Our Values

At Epping Views Kindergarten, we ask our staff, children and families to show the values of:

Acceptance: Accepting others as they are, regardless of differences
Belonging: Having a sense of belonging to the group and community
Caring: Feeling and showing concern and empathy for others
Respect: Showing consideration to other people and property, treating others how we would like to be treated
