At Kaleen Cubby House, children are encouraged to develop a strong sense of identity, to feel safe, secure and supported. They are nurtured while developing their emerging sense of autonomy, independence and resilience. Children from an early age, are encouraged and challenged to consider empathy, care and respect in all they do- be it for the earth and its resources, peers, friends, family and for one another’s learning. We believe this learning is maximised as Cubby House is a truly unique and passionate learning environment.
Educators develop and nourish strong inclusive, responsive and trusting relationships with children and see them as active citizens of their world enabling them to understand they have rights, as do others and that these rights respectfully occur on Ngnunnawal Land.
Understanding well being for children encapsulates and builds on their knowledge of many daily rhythms such as when to eat if hungry, to learn through play indoors or outdoors by choice, or when to try something new. It means choosing to participate in a group gathering or be respected for making the choice to be involved as an active listener and observer. Cubby House is proud of our relationship-based curriculum in which we collaborate with families and embrace their expertise as their child’s first teacher.
Acknowledging children’s rights to make decisions for themselves, to grow in autonomy and agency means to grow as an active, respectful and compassionate co-learner. Children’s voices and learning will be captured and showcased with their permission.
Kaleen Cubby House is full of wonderful moments of intentional teaching, splashes of spontaneity and celebrations of our individual uniqueness and diversity.
