Our Philosophy

We believe that all children are unique, capable, competent and involved learners who make a valuable contribution to their community.

We believe children have the right to be respected, be safe, have loving relationships, be cared for and educated in a learning environment free from discrimination or bias.

Scots is a service of UnitingCare Tasmania , a Christian organisation, and therefore we follow the values of the Christian faith treating all with kindness and respect.

We believe all children learn through play experiences and our programmes are derived from the children’s interests and are created for each child’s needs and level of development. These programmes reflect the principals and practices of the National Early Years Learning Framework.

We actively promote and encourage strong partnerships with families as this creates a wonderful sense of belonging that is vital to the learning environment of our children.

We believe the reflective process leads to continual improvement of care and education. Scots provides the highest quality service to our children and families by the ongoing process of reflection and review in collaboration with families and educators.
