Our Philosophy

We believe every child is special, unique, beautiful, irreplaceable, exceptional, and by far one of a kind and that each child has the right to be loved for who they are.    kamalieDefinition

 

Kamalei means ‘beloved child’.

We believe every child is special, unique, beautiful, irreplaceable, exceptional, and by far one of a kind and that each child has the right to be loved for who they are.
We recognise that all children are different and embrace this individuality by recording observations, documentation and educational records in order to program according to each child’s interests and learning opportunities. We believe in providing equal opportunities for all children regardless of gender, ability, race or religious background and recognise the importance of role modeling positive attitudes and respect for all cultures.


Kamalei Children’s Centre believes that Child Care is far more than just babysitting. 

We believe in providing a home like environment that is warm, loving and welcoming. We know that ‘play is a child’s work’ and therefore we strive to provide a curriculum that allows children to develop to their fullest potential. We encourage children to be a part of the decision making for the curriculum. We recognise the importance of providing opportunities for children to explore, manipulate, experiment, interact, imitate, create, problem solve, negotiate and reason based on their own interests and capabilities. We believe that it is vital that the early childhood curriculum is responsive to economic and technological changes. We will work to engage children in a rapidly changing world.
We believe we have the opportunity to set our next generation on a beneficial path of good health, nutrition, thirst for knowledge and lifelong learning.
We believe in staff and parents building supportive relationship and recognise the importance of the family in the development of children. We encourage parents and families to become actively involved in the centre, wherever possible. We believe in having an open door policy and encourage parents to share dreams, concerns, ideas, culture and experiences.
We believe in providing children with natural open-ended products as much and where ever possible, in order to stimulate their natural curiosity, imagination and discovery of all the senses. We believe in offering children the ‘real thing' encouraging the children to be careful (cause and effect/self control) learning valuable life skills.
We also believe in recycling and using recyclables as much as possible, and teaching the children about basic sustainability and to care for our environment, by way of re-using items, growing our own vegetables, minimizing waste and using a rain water tank.
We want your time with us at Kamalei Children’s Centre to be remembered for being positive, having fun and for providing highest quality care possible.
