At Mareeba Community Kindergarten we are committed to the importance of a quality early childhood education that engages each individual child, to strive to achieve their full potential by stimulating their learning abilities through: a strong sense of identity, by connecting and contributing to their world, developing a strongs sense of wellbeing, being confident and involved learners and becoming effective communicators.
It is very important that children grow in a warm friendly community where each child is able to develop at their own rate and where opportunities are created in a free and flexible and natural learning environment. In order to achieve this, we provide secure, respectful and reciprocal relationships, through regular communication with each child and their families where we respect each family's cultural diversity. We are committed to equity and believe that each child can succeed and achieve in learning through play. Children will be able to interact with other children and adults and will learn through exploration, discovery and play.
We believe that it is important for each child to become an enthusiastic learner. This means encouraging children to become active and creative explorers who are not afraid to try out their ideas and to think and express their own thoughts. Our goal is to help children to become independent, self-confident and inquisitive learners. We're developing good habits and attitudes, particularly a positive sense of themselves and hopefully a love of learning that lasts a lifetime.
Mareeba Community Kindergarten acknowledges and pays our respects to the traditional custodians of the land, the Muluridji people on whose land and our C&K Kindergarten is placed. We acknowledge and pay our respects to all Elders past and present.
