Tree of Life Child Care Centre and Kindergarten acknowledges the Traditional Custodians, the People of the land on which our childcare services are established, and their continuing connection to the land, sea and community. Tree of Life Child Care Centre and Kindergarten also pays respect to both past and present Elders.
Learning their history can help children develop a connection to the land of Australia and the environment they live in. Developing awareness and respect for the Elders from an early age is essential to growth and increasing empathy.
We support our educators to insert their views into our educational practices, so their language and culture are accessible to all children. We promote the advancement of close, open and respectful ties with the local community and elders. Furthermore, we put a tremendous focus on trust. More specifically, trust in the ideas of our community and elders, trust in the educators and parents to promote and transfer these ideas to the children, and trust in the children to believe in these values, and eventually transfer them to future generations.
