  • Recognise the uniqueness of early childhood development in the life cycle
  • Create a learning environment that enables our students to realise their highest potential

  • Recognise and appreciate that our students are uniquely gifted and their individuality should be respected
  • Educate our students to support the child's primary caregivers - the parents
  • Acknowledge that early childhood teachers can make a difference in the lives of young children and their families
