  • We will nurture the family and the whole child.

  • We will work together as a team to create a positive learning environment
  • We will provide the opportunity for staff to attend professional development which will enhance the learning program for children
  • We will work closely with the Port Augusta/Quorn partnership to ensure the strategic directions are met.

FOR THE COMMUNITY

  • We will invite and engage agencies within the community to share/engage/teach
  • We will encourage children to develop a sense of social responsibility not only in the centre but the wide community
