Meerilinga’s philosophy is based on the belief that children deserve the right to grow and develop. Each child in our program is viewed in a holistic manner and individual needs and interests are shared and built upon to ensure positive learning experiences for every child. Children learn through play, therefore we encourage and support their learning and development by being involved, supportive and available.
We value each child’s unique culture and celebrate diversity. We believe children learn through developing strong, nurturing and respectful relationships so that they feel confident to take on challenges, make friends and learn about the world in which they live. We want to nurture in children a sense of wonder and appreciation for the environment through providing a variety of experiences for them to choose and explore at their own pace.
Our Educators are motivated and dedicated professionals who participate in professional development opportunities to enable quality practice to be maintained as part of our continuous improvement. Educators work in partnership with family members and the community. We encourage and welcome families’ participation in the program, open communication and the sharing of information. All information shared with Educators will be treated respectfully and in the best interests of children.
