We believe that each child is unique in their own way, we know that each child is different and has different needs, therefore our goal is to provide a learning environment that accommodates all children in the room and that meets each child’s needs.
We believe that having the choice of indoor and outdoor play at all times is very important for our children to extend their learning and to give everyone space to explore and extend children’s physical and mental growth.

In the Hope Room, we acknowledge and value the early years in each child, especially of those in our care.

We believe that the early years in a child are vital, as development during this stage is rapid.
Early years education plays an important role in the development of a child and meeting his/her current needs as well as shaping his/her future.
As early childhood educators, we believe in providing high quality early years education and care. We believe this can be achieved by creating a physical environment that is safe, secure and supported at all times, flexible and adaptable to the needs of each child. We believe that children understand and make meaning of the world around them through their play and experiences.
We believe that each child is unique and that it is important to provide a wide variety of open-ended resources within the environment to give each child the opportunity to explore, investigate, create and learn by participating confidently with other children and also with their educators.
We believe in diversity and in the inclusion of each child’s culture. We believe in working in partnerships with parents, this enables us to form strong, respectful bonds, which allows us to share knowledge, develop ideas and empowers us to work collaboratively to promote their child’s agency.
The Early Years Learning Framework and National Quality Standards influence our philosophy. The Reggio Emilia approach that states that the environment is the ‘Third Teacher”, this is central to our goal in creating a holistic and nurtured setting each child in our care.

Whilst respecting the environment they learn in, they develop a sense of themselves.

This will allow them to grow while learning from their peers and educators.
We enjoy collaborating with the Courage parents to gain a wide understanding of each family’s beliefs, cultural diversity and the development of their child. We believe the natural environment plays a major role in the success of an early childhood program. It will enhance the children’s interests and have a positive influence within their developmental domains.
Our room is set up to create an inviting and encouraging play space, with age appropriate challenges that we are constantly extending on with the children’s input. We provide documentation to share with our families about experiences their child has participated in. Families can add to these resources and have input into providing information about their child and the stages of their learning.
