At Hampton Park Community House, our local First Nation’s community tell the popular story of a birthing tree, said to be the large gum tree out the front of the House. The tree is a significant symbol of the deep history of this place which has welcomed children and families for millennia. As custodians of this House and our Children’s Services, we continue this long legacy. Like the tree that provides our House with shelter and place to come together, we as a community protect and nurture our children and each other now and for generations to come.
Our Children’s Services has strong roots in a rich and culturally diverse community that believes:
- All children have the right to experience quality childcare and education
- Each child is an individual with unique abilities, possessing their own potential and offering an important voice to their learning experiences
- The strength of the local community in its cultural diversity, relationships and unity are the foundations for excellent care and learning for all children
- The learning environment must be welcoming, fun, play-based, safe and supportive and actively involves parents, carers and families
- Children, their families and community are connected by the activities, learning and play at the House and this is based on respectful relationships, acceptance and a strong sense of belonging.
There are three foundational pillars that underpin our Children’s Services Philosophy:
- Our community, families and social connections – by working together we build a strong and loving community who shares stories that bind us together
- Children’s physical and emotional wellbeing development – by building resilience, love and respect for ourselves and each other
- Learning through belonging – by enabling the children to engage in the community and environment around them.
