We believe that each child as an individual with his/her own personality, family and cultural background. Our aim of Australian Anatolian Community Services is to provide the children in our care with a happy and safe environment that supports the development of nature and nurture of the children who we care for. This supports individual child to develop their skills, and abilities to grow their potential and contribute to the life of the local and wider community.

  • We encourage your child’s voice to be heard and acted upon, and we welcome our families to participate and interact in their child’s educational program.
  • We encourage our employees to continue their education in Early Childhood Education.
  • We aim to network with other community services to enable us to provide useful links to our families.     

Our Philosophy

Our Philosophy

 We believe…. 

  • Each child has the right to be safe, respected, valued, and supported to explore, and initiate learning. 
  • Each child is unique individual who needs secure, caring and stimulating atmosphere to grow and mature emotionally, intellectually, physically and socially.  
  • It is crucial to adapt the centre curriculum to support each individual child including cultural factors which contribute to who the child is, how the child learns and responds.  
  • Building trustworthy relationships with parents and guardians which turn will support children’s learning and help them gain life-long skills. 
  • Parent involvement in children’s education is beneficial for children, parents, educators and the centre. We acknowledge and value your contribution to your child’s learning, the centre’s curriculum and programs.  
  • That educators to provide play based learning and child-centered ways of learning to support individual child’s strength, abilities, interest, their dispositions, physical and emotional well-being.

Our Curriculum

Early Childhood Curriculum

The Early Years learning Framework (EYLF), the National Quality Standards and the Code of Ethics underpin our curriculum and practice. Our curriculum is based on children’s interest, skills, needs and the educators support them through planned and spontaneous experiences while incorporating family input.   The EYLF outlines that: “Children’s learning is ongoing and each child will progress towards the outcomes in different and equally meaningful ways. Learning is not always predictable and linear. Educators plan with each child and the outcomes in mind.” (Early Years Learning Framework, p.19). With this in mind we encourage educators to use this reference as a source of information rather than as a prescriptive checklist. A sound understanding of developmental milestones will support educators to effectively assess children’s play and learning. Intentional teaching, planning and evaluation should be based on sound professional knowledge. It is our belief that when educators embed the practices and principles of the EYLF into their daily practice, the EYLF outcomes will follow, as will the capacity to meet the National Quality Standards.    Reflections, observations and evaluation of our programs are available each day for families to read, and feedback.
