We are committed to providing high-quality education and care for children, and believe that to do this we also need to be continually improving our practices. The National Quality Framework gives us the opportunity to demonstrate our practices and be assessed to ensure that we are providing high-quality services.
Belonging, Being and Becoming
The Early Years Learning Framework for Australia informs the development of our programs to enhance each child's learning and development. Our programs are designed to enable children to learn through play - interacting with peers and educators to extend their learning, encounter new ideas and challenge their thinking.
Our educators are skilled in extending children's learning through intentional teaching, responding to spontaneous events and taking a holistic approach to learning and well being. Our environments are welcoming spaces where children can move between a variety of experiences at their own pace, guided by their own interests.
At Banjora, we aim to provide a caring and educational program that is focussed on the diverse needs of children, families and our community. We value the connectedness of Banjora’s stakeholders, our professional position as educators, and the role the environment plays in learning and development.
We maintain positive and respectful relationships with the children in our care. We are confident in childrens ability to learn through play by taking risks, experimenting and exploring the environment, in addition to educators role in intentional teaching.
We have confidence in working together with families to support each other in caring and educating children and supporting our community. Working in partnership with our families will ensure a holistic and positive relationship for all.
Educators and staff maintain a high level of professionalism through working together, supporting each other and continuously expanding our knowledge base. Through reflective practice, we ensure we are always bringing new ideas to our programs.
We aim to provide a safe and secure environment with opportunities for risk taking and self-regulation to occur. We strive to foster environmentally sustainable practices through an awareness of caring for and enjoying natural environments.

- We also take the children on regular excursions where they can play and learn. Bush walking on Nail Can Hill is one of the favourite outings, giving the children opportunities to look for kangaroos and other animals, find beautiful wildflowers or create artworks from sticks and leaves.
