ELC Philosphy


At St Jude’s Early Learning Centre

We aim to foster children’s wellbeing through developing their independence, their social and their emotional skills through nurturing, wondering, interacting, playing, reflecting and praying.

We value the importance of recognising that each child is a unique individual and realise the value of self-expression and celebrating differences.

We believe all children need to be supported in an engaging environment where they feel safe, valued and inspired.

We achieve this by fostering strong relationships with the children, their families and the community through open and ongoing communication.

We recognise that each staff member brings unique qualities, individual strengths, knowledge and ideas to the team.

We strive to be a community of learners in which children, their families and community members feel valued and can express their thoughts and ideas.
