We acknowledge that each child’s family knows their child best and educators work in partnerships with families to ensure that each and every child reaches their full potential. The connections and partnerships we build and instil within our preschool community are forever lasting. Children learn as they play and are encouraged to value their unique interests and abilities, in response educators are passionate and committed as we believe children are capable and confident leaners who have the right to make decisions, learn new skills and take risks in order to construct their own identities and understandings of the world. Pinewood Preschool values the connections to our natural world and embeds a holistic approach to sustainability. Through this practice our children learn how to contribute to the health of their local environmental and the planet now and in to the future.
