Family

At Salamander Child Care Centre, we believe the family is the first educator of children. We will collaborate with families to ensure that we continue to educate and nurture children through play-based learning as they discover and make sense of their world.

Family is the first educator of children.

Capable Individual

We see every child as being a capable individual, an independent thinker, a respected and valuable member of the community, an explorer, an experimenter and curious about the world around them.

Confident & Resilient

We believe children, through support, guidance and respect, will develop self-confidence, a sense of self and belonging, resilience, meaningful relationships, safe risk-taking skills and a love of the natural world.

Safe risk-taking
and a love of the natural world.

Creative

We believe every child deserves the opportunity to learn, be heard, be nurtured, feel safe and secure, be creative, imaginative and express ideas through play and the arts.

Engaging Educators

We believe that quality staff, that are valued and encouraged to grow professionally, are essential to children’s learning and development.

Community

We are committed to supporting and protecting children, their families and the environment. We recognise and acknowledge the individual and their culture and aim to develop children’s awareness and understanding of diversity through participation in the community.
