Family Partnerships

Kindness, respect and trust are the core values which inform our daily practice. Building and nurturing warm, respectful and positive relationships with children and families enhance their sense of belonging at our service. Through a collaborative approach, based on regular communication and positive interactions, educators work with families to guide, and support them to achieve the best outcomes for their children.

Children's Voices

With our commitment to the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child, and belief that children’s welfare and wellbeing is paramount, we will strive to protect children from harm, respect their dignity and privacy, safeguard and promote every child’s wellbeing. We view children as curious, competent and capable learners, able to voice their opinions, make choices and express their needs and wants.

Cultural Diversity

Turramurra Kindergarten was formed on the lands of the Durramurragal people. We acknowledge Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islander people as the Traditional Custodians of this country and their connection to the land, water, and community in which we operate. We value and encourage our children’s and families’ individual cultures, backgrounds, and traditions at our service.  We acknowledge the wealth of diversity that everyone brings to Turramurra Kindergarten.

Educator/Child relationships

Educators, children and their families have an equal opportunity to grow and learn within a non-discriminatory environment, where their needs are supported, valued and acknowledged and they have relationships with each other. Educators and children are provided opportunities for mindfulness and relaxation which assists in the development of resilience, positive emotional wellbeing and self-worth. In addition, a nutritionally balanced menu and physical activity is available to promote healthy lifestyles with special consideration for food allergies, dietary requirements, and specific cultural and religious practices.

Lifelong Learning

We believe children are competent and capable of co-constructing their own knowledge of the world around them. Therefore, we embrace a play-based curriculum, based upon the principles and outcomes outlined in the Early Years Learning Framework (EYLF). We provide children with choice through offering a wide variety of age-appropriate learning opportunities and resources that are easily accessible and we build on their foundations so they have a love for learning.


We aim to foster an appreciation of the natural environment and deepen each child’s sense of wonder, belonging, interconnectedness to the land, nature, and animals. Through educator support and experiences provided to children, we actively develop lifelong, proactive attitudes & practices for a sustainable future.

Community Envolvement

We strive to utilise community resources to enhance the growth and development of individual children, families, and educators. We contribute to our wider community to assist the children in achieving a sense of being, belonging & becoming whilst supporting others.


Our commitment is to continuously improve and to maintain a culture of ongoing learning, reflection, and self -assessment. We are committed to exceeding the national quality standards through implementing effective self- review processes in consultation with our educators, children, families, and community. Our team continually reflects upon and improves our policies, procedures, and practices.
