Our Philosophy

At Epping Little Sprouts, we pride ourselves in ensuring children’s care and safety are always the highest priority.

We build trusting relationships with children and their families so everyone feels welcome and part of the Epping Little Sprouts Family.

Our planning for children is guided by Reggio Emilio, a theorist who believed that children are 'knowledge bearers' and the teachers are 'co-learners and facilitators' of the educational development and wellbeing of a child. 

Our planning and programming is child-centred driven. 

We believe that the natural world is essential to the holistic health and development of children. Sustainable practise will be embedded into the daily program to enrich children’s understanding of our world and how precious it is.

Each child comes to Epping Little sprouts with a different set of experiences, knowledge and interests.

We seek to build on the child’s home experiences and we acknowledge the range of diverse lifestyles and cultures of families and the community.

Our families are valued, and their diverse backgrounds will be accepted, reflected and empowered in our program.

Epping Little Sprouts is guided by the National Law and Regulation, the National Quality Standards and Early Learning Years Framework in all practises and managerial decision-making procedures that will support the educators to create a strong confident team that can provide high quality care to all children.

The Epping Little Sprouts Philosophy was created in conjunction with staff and families.
