Morphett Vale East Kindergarten

Welcome

We believe that it is in the early childhood years that children for who they are as individuals. We have a responsibility to develop the whole child – socially, emotionally, physically and cognitively. We acknowledge that parents are the child’s first educators and that we need to build effective relationships in order to work as partners.

The principles of respect, shared responsibility and community underpin our work.

We believe that children learn through curiosity, exploration, discovery and play. Our role as educators is to facilitate all children’s learning by:
