The Yarragon Early Learning Centre strives to provide a friendly and open environment where families feel welcomed and valued. We are inclusive of all children and families including the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Island Community.
We acknowledge the importance of forming successful relationships with children, families and the community which optimizes positive outcomes for each child enabling them to reach their full potential. Promoting the implementation of the child safe standards so that each child feels safe and connected is embedded in our services everyday practice.
We endeavour to provide a play based learning environment that reflects the children’s interests and ideas, provides open ended and creative experiences and caters for children’s individual needs. An environment that is child centred, rich in a range of materials, resources and opportunities in which children can engage and excel as confident learners and become valuable members of the wider school community.
