Carinbundi Kids Family Day Care believe each child is an individual and educators will value and develop each child’s interest, strength’s, skills and abilities to extend children’s knowledge and understanding. Family Day Care provides opportunities for children to explore, discover, imagine and grow.
Educators provide an environment which is safe, caring, stimulating, understanding and where all children are treated equally without discrimination towards race, culture, religion or gender. Fairness is not based on all children receiving the same resources, but giving them the resources they individually require to enhance their individual abilities and knowledge.
Carinbundi Kids Family Day Care supports our Educators to ensure that they provide the best possible care to each child. Focusing on the health, safety and wellbeing of each individual child whilst at the same time respecting their individual needs and privacy.
As we value “our” children, equally we value our families. Having input from families is integral in the joint relationship between educators, children and families. Carinbundi Kids Family Day Care encourages families to share their valuable knowledge. We support and encourage family involvement and venture to keep our families informed and updated of planning, programming and other information they would find beneficial. We welcome parental/carer input and encourage contact direct between our office and parents/carers.
Carinbundi Kids Family Day Care believe in the motto "Be Limitless". We want children to feel like they can do anything they strive to do in their now and their future. We believe with the right environment, encouragement and guidance children will have the feeling of belonging. Belonging is central to being and becoming, in that it shapes who children are and who they can become to form the best version of themselves.
