mission statement

Kidville Academy recognizes that children are Competent, Capable, Curious and Rich in Potential. All children are unique individuals and our KVA learning environment supports our children to discover new concepts, uncover hidden mysteries and imagine new possibilities.

Our team aims to provide a well-balanced learning environment where children are free to observe, question, experiment and explore.

our environment and educators ensure that:

Each child shall have a sense of Belonging. They should feel connected to others, valued, and encouraged to form relationships with other within their community and the natural world.

Each child shall have a sense of Well-being: They will develop a sense of self care, self-regulation and well-being.

Each child shall have the opportunity for Engagement. By being encouraged to be involved and inquire they will have the opportunity to explore their world and develop skills such as problem solving, creative thinking, and innovating.

Each child shall have the opportunity for Expression. Communication is encouraged through their words, their bodies, or the use of materials and supports their creativity and problem solving.

(b)  support positive and responsive interactions among the children, parents, child care providers and staff;

(c)   encourage the children to interact and communicate in a positive way and support their ability to self-regulate;

(d)  foster the children’s exploration, play and inquiry;

(e)   provide child-initiated and adult-supported experiences;

(f)     plan for and create positive learning environments and experiences in which each child’s learning and development will be supported;

(g)  incorporate indoor play, as well as active play, rest and quiet time, into the day, and give consideration to the individual needs of the children receiving child care;

(h)  foster the engagement of and ongoing communication with parents about the program and their children;
