Philosophy

We would like to acknowledge that Little Jarjums Preschool, is a meeting place for everyone on Bundjalung land.We honour all Aboriginal people as the traditional custodians of Australia. We pay our respects to Elders past, present and aim to educate and nurture our Jarjums as the future Elders of the Bundjalung Nation through connection to Country, family and community. 

We care for Bundjalung Land through everyday sustainable practices within our daily experiences. This aims to encourage our Jarjums to take responsibility for their impact on the environment. 

We value relationships with our jarjums, our families and our community. These partnerships, provide us with opportunities to foster our children’s current interests and strength’s, and identify goals for future learning and development. 

Our whole school community embraces Preschool with teachers and educators working together with families, to provide continuity of learning and transition from one setting to another. Our children’s participation in whole school community events provides a sense of belonging, and pathways to new experiences and learning. 

We value relationships with our jarjums, our families and our community. These partnerships, provide us with opportunities to foster our children’s current interests and strength’s, and identify goals for future learning and development. 

All Educators have a commitment to continue to strengthen their knowledge and understanding of “best practice” in Early Childhood Education and Care through ongoing professional learning, critical reflection and staff collaboration. 

Each child has the right to feel safe and secure. This is supported at Little Jarjums Preschool through building respectful, reciprocal relationships by valuing each child’s voice and respecting their values, ideas, beliefs, backgrounds and cultures.
