Welcome to Gumnut Pre-Kinder

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAWe believe it is important to:

  • Provide high quality educational experiences underpinned by Christian principles and values, which promote respect, trust, tolerance, independence and self-confidence
  • Provide a safe environment which values: others, other people’s property, nature and the children’s rights.
  • Provide our children with a wide variety of play based experiences that will encourage them to explore, make discoveries, learn at their own pace, be curious and experience success.
  • Acknowledge and support the individual learning styles of all children, while using the children’s interests to guide our daily program.
  • Use both the indoor and outdoor areas as sensory learning environments.
  • Work collaboratively with our families to build relationships that acknowledge strengths, cultural backgrounds and a sense of belonging.
  • Support children’s learning and well-being by sharing information, developing links and working in collaboration with the local community.
  • Continue our professional development so we can engage with current research and contemporary learning theory.
  • Develop and plan for quality improvement through critical reflection on current practice and identification of the centres strengths.
