We Believe and Concentrates

  •  A program must support every child’s pride in their family, community, ethnic and linguistic heritage. Therefore, helping all children to function successfully in a culturally diverse society.
  •  Each child’s developmental progress must be observed, evaluated and followed up on a regular basis. The learning experiences are to be relevant to the child’s individual strengths and needs. The program should also be flexible, accommodate spontaneous choices and have continuous feedback and involvement from parents.
  •  Physical and interpersonal environment should provide a high standard of nutritional, health and safety requirements.
  •  Program should reflect current issues of the family and community and be based on an up-to-date theoretical basis. Therefore, we will always strive to implement developmentally appropriate practices and show a commitment to continual education and self-development as professionals.
  •  Environment should be anti-bias and encourage / support gender equity.
  •  Every child should be encouraged towards a positive self-esteem, and this should be reflected in daily care. We will always advocate social equality, mutual respect, trust, cooperation and shared responsibility.
