PRESCHOOL - Philosophy

The staff and Governing Council of Loxton North School welcome you to our Preschool.

We value and care for all children and families within our service by providing a safe and caring learning environment. We aspire to provide a service that meets the learning and wellbeing needs of the children and parents / caregivers in a way that complements and supports the family. We believe 

  • Children need an environment that is safe, welcoming, encouraging, stimulating, warm, secure, healthy and fun
  • Children learn through play and we encourage connections through nature play
  • Each child has a right to be heard, loved, cared for, accepted and safe
  • Through socialising with other children and adults, children develop a sense of self-worth, confidence and social skills 
  • Parents are the primary educators of their children
  • Parents have a right to be involved at any level with which they feel comfortable
  • Each child is from a family with differing backgrounds, values and attitudes ? Open and ongoing communication between parents, caregivers and staff is essential
  • Children benefit when staff reflect on their practice and engage in ongoing professional learning
  • We work together with other agencies in the community and beyond, for the benefit of the children, parents and families in the Loxton North Primary School Community
  • The Preschool is a Nut Aware Zone - this means that nuts and nut products cannot be brought onto the site. We ask that any food being brought onto the Preschool site to be checked for traces of nut(s) or nut products.
