Ripples Early Learning Centre believes, all children are entitled to quality care and education in a safe and inspiring child-focussed setting. The environment should promote innovative learning, created by nurturing staff in accordance with family values.

We believe and value the provision of:

a) Meaningful and secure relationships with children

  • Each child is unique and respected and each child's contributions are acknowledged.
  • A nurturing environment provides safety and security.
  • Experiences facilitate active participants of learning.
  • We build upon a child's self image, independence and self belief with a sense of responsibility.

b) Partnerships with parents and the community

  • The relationships each child has with their families and communities are the foundations for learning.
  • Meaningful and trusting relationships with families are essential and are used in extending each child's learning.
  • Information exchange about family life, community and culture is embraced and is used in the development of our curriculum.

c) High quality care and education from Educators

  • Educators are advocates for young children's needs and rights.
  • Ongoing support and training is provided for each professional Educator.
  • Educators model positive attitudes and enthusiasm for learning.
  • Children's interests and special abilities as well as cultural backgrounds are the basis of our curriculum.

d) Innovative programming and learning

  • Experiences facilitate learning and positive outcomes.
  • Educators, children, family and community are an integral part of the program.
  • Children learn through exploration, investigation and collaboration.
  • Engaging in reflection and special interests as well as cultural backgrounds are the basis of our curriculum.

e) Creative learning environments

  • The indoor and outdoor spaces facilitate exploration and self paced learning.
  • Nature plays an important role in children's learning about the world in which we live.
  • Environmental responsibility is powerful and effective throughout the day.
  • Children guide their learning with the assistance of educators.

  • "My daughter has life threatening allergies. The staff at Ripples took the severity of her condition seriously and were extremely diligent to ensure that my daughter was never exposed to her allergens either via what she ate or what she touched.  She was never excluded from activities or special events as they were organised with her allergies in mind. It was a refreshing experience to have a dedicated team provide the same level of care that we provide at home ."
