Family Day Care Philosophy

Monash Family Day Care believes that children should be educated and cared for in a safe, warm, secure and loving environment that is respectful of their cultural diversity, fosters a sense of belonging in the family day care community and encourages them to be actively involved in developing a fun, play based learning program. 

We believe that play forms the foundation for children’s learning and we will be guided by the Early Years Learning Framework, “Belonging, Being and Becoming” in providing learning environments that support positive outcomes for children.

We respect the uniqueness of each child’s characteristics and abilities and acknowledge the importance of the child’s family; their values, language and background. 

We encourage positive, respectful relationships between all children, parents, educators and coordination unit staff; and foster a working environment in which teamwork is evidenced through support and understanding as well as an appreciation of the contribution of all team members.  

We believe that Family Day Care offers children many unique opportunities to enrich their lives and to develop and grow into happy, resilient young people who have the necessary skills to fulfil their potential and become confident members of the community.
