In All Things Love

Our Philosophy - Preschool

At St Joseph's Preschool, we have strong beliefs about child and how they learn.


  • We value children's knowledge, interest and culture and recognise families are the child's first teachers.
  • We are influenced by early childhood theorists and Reggio Emilia which emphasise the importance of learning through play.
  • Sustainability practises are embedded in our daily routines. Children express gratitude for self, environment and others. 


  • Our purpose as educators is to nurture children to be confident, respectful, independent and expressive. 
  • We value Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Perspectives and reflect this in our culturally responsive curriculum. 
  • We value children's individuality and their cultural, diversity, gender and religion. 


  • We foster children's passion for learning and build safe, caring relationships with others. 
  • We aim to build trusting and nurturing relationships with children and their families through effective communication and collaboration.
