Kinda Kapers Philosophy

Loving care in partnership with parents and families

At Kinda Kapers, we believe that:

  • Parents and families are the first and most important teachers a child will ever have. Our educators understand the importance of building positive relationships with families, so that children will flourish both at home and in the childcare environment.
  • Everyone should feel welcome. Our centres are welcoming and inviting, and each groups' individual programs are inclusive, reflecting families beliefs, values, culture and diversity.
  • The space in which children develop is important. Our centres are purpose-built and the indoor and outdoor learning environments become flexible and interchangeable spaces where children are consistently engaged in learning.
  • Each child's individuality and uniqueness should be celebrated. Our educators create dynamic learning environments, which foster a sense of inclusion, fun and exploration.
  • Learning should always be fun! Our play-based programs encourage child-initiated learning.
