Our Philosophy

At Oz Education, we take a holistic approach to learning and teaching.

We nurture each child’s physical, emotional, social, spiritual wellbeing as well as cognitive aspects of development which helps them grow into a well-rounded, confident and successful individual.

Learning is fun and personalised to inspire a love for lifelong learning.

Our qualified early childhood educators recognise the unique developmental needs of children and tailor play-based learning experiences based on world leading research and standards of the Early Years Learning Framework.

Our management team in our headquarters together with centre management staff, support staff and educators believe that all children and families in our diverse community deserve equal respect & support in relation to their beliefs, culture, customs, values and family structure.

We listen to our children’s voices, family voices, educator voices as well as Early Childhood Education research and developments to inform our programs and services.

Our centre staff also partner with families and carers to provide a safe, supportive and nurturing environment where every child belongs and thrives.
