Philosophy

Albany Hills Outside School Hours Care believes that all children have a right to develop to their full potential. We aim to incorporate experiences in the curriculum that recognise the uniqueness of each child. We will provide activities and have procedures in place that promote sustainability, where applicable, enabling children to observe and learn how these strategies offset the impact on the environment. Children are encourage to contribute to the program and these contributions are incorporated into the weekly program.

Educators work alongside children in a safe and supportive environment that inspires children to seek out new challenges and experiences. The service offers opportunities to engage in activities that will challenge and develop skills whilst encouraging and supporting children to manage risks. Children are offered opportunities for decision making and leadership as well as individual and group activities. 

We acknowledge the traditional custodians of the and on which we operate. We recognise the many significant contributions of the Aboriginal and Torres Straight Islander community, their elders, past, present and emerging. We acknowledge and respect the important role that all cultures play in our community.
