Our Pre-School Philosophy



Jacaranda Preschool recognises the rich heritage of our First Nation’s people and acknowledges

the Wurundjeri Willum Clan as the custodians of our land.


Jacaranda Pre-School is a nurturing, caring, safe place where:


children, families and staff feel a sense of belonging and build positive relationships with each other


all children are empowered to participate and are celebrated as unique


all adults strive to keep every child and are committed to uphold current child safe standards


we can all be ourselves and thrive to reach our full potential together as a collaborative community

where we hold high expectations for every child's learning


all are encouraged to grow and take risks, reflect on practice and build partnerships to be the

best kindergarten we can be we strive to provide a culturally safe environment in which

the diverse and unique identities and experiences of Aboriginal children are respected and valued


we recognise the needs of children and young people with disability, children and young people

from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds, those who are unable to live at home,

and lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and intersex children and young people


we value the environment and believe the connection we build with nature plays

a vital role in shaping children to support and build a sustainable community.
