Reconciliation Journey

Our vision is a future where Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples, cultures and contributions are actively recognised and respected; where all Australians embrace Elders past, present and future for the wisdom and knowledge they hold and share. Each of our centres have a published Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP) and are committed to take action as per the statements in the RAP.

As the future generations of Australia are within our centres, we are committed to supporting and role modeling to them to build and form a sense of belonging and strong connections with local Elders, community, families and children. We acknowledge the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples knowledge and connection to the earth, land and community and strive to foster this within all philosophy. We acknowledge the contribution of local Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples, in particular to the education of young children, and recognise their continued relationship with the Country on which our early learning centre stands since long before our centre’s stories begun.
