Philosophy

At Dr. Stanley Cochrane Memorial Kindergarten PLAY is given the greatest priority within our programme as play is the basis of all learning and encourages creativity, self expression and independence.

It is our belief that children need to feel positive about their own self worth; therefore it is of utmost importance that each child values themselves for what they are and what they can offer others.

The staff model appropriate behaviours and provide guidance where necessary to help children socialise, develop respect for one another, assume responsibility for their actions and resolve conflicts.

The success of our programme is reliant on a positive partnership between parents and staff. It is not only the influence of the kindergarten staff, but that of parents, peers and the general community that helps to achieve the overall growth of the child.

We aim to work together with you to provide the very best for your child’s welfare and education.
