At My World Child Care we believe that every child has the right to be:
We acknowledge the traditional owners of this land, the people of the Nyoongar region. We recognise that diversity contributes to the richness of our society, we endeavour to promote a greater understanding of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander ways of knowing and being and respect the histories, cultures, languages, traditions, child rearing practices and lifestyle choices of all families within our service.
We believe that: Each child is an individual, created with a unique destiny, unique abilities and interests. In taking a holistic approach, we recognise the connectedness of mind, body and spirit. We believe that it is our role to foster, stimulate and develop each child’s physical, personal, social, emotional and spiritual wellbeing as well as cognitive aspects of learning.
The centre has an environment and atmosphere that is safe, with the children’s well being safeguarded and their dignity and privacy respected, enabling all children to experience the security of belonging, the freedom of being, and the empowerment of becoming.
Attachment Theory underpins the practices of My World, with a focus on the childcare educator as the primary caregiver for their group of children. With an attachment prospective the primary caregiver becomes the trusted figure that is emotionally available, responsive, and sensitive and provides care giving practices that respond to the child’s unique communication patterns.
My World believes that the positive relationships and attitudes between children, their families, communities and physical environment can be enhanced through the implementation of the principles of Love, Joy, Peace, Patience and Kindness, Goodness, Gentleness, Faithfulness and Self Control.
My World embraces the principles and practices of the National Quality Framework that focus on assisting all children to make progress in relation to the 5 Learning Outcomes:
- Children have a strong sense of identity
- Children are connected with and contribute to their world
- Children have a strong sense of wellbeing
