Our Guiding Principles

We Believe,

  • That ‘learning can happen anywhere at any time’
  • Every child develops dispositions to learn through their senses, creativity, imagination, persistence, enthusiasm, and curiosity
  • Children strive to make meaningful connections through authentic experiences that reflect their interests
  • Learning is effective when play experiences can be transferred and adapted from one context to another
  • Every child learns best when their physical and emotional needs are met as they develop resilience, inter-dependence and a sense of agency
  • Every child is free to learn in an environment where they feel safe, secure and supported
  • Children learn respect, empathy and care through social interaction with adults and other children
  • Visual learning is an important form of expression and is a creative way for children to better understand the world around them
  • Promoting cultural identity, participation and discussion is important to the Shine community. We instil values of multiculturism, acceptance and celebrations
  • Every child’s learning reflects a recurring cycle that begins in awareness, moves to exploration, to inquiry and finally to utilisation

Around here, we don’t look backwards for very long…
We keep moving forward, opening up new doors and doing
new things because we’re curious…and curiosity keeps leading
us down new paths
