Being the Best We Can Be

We provide a safe and nurturing environment where we encourage children to have respect for themselves, respect for others and responsibility for their actions.

We set high but achievable expectations and teach the children to make good choices. We work closely with families to promote positive behaviours.

We use co-operative games to teach skills and are constantly noticing and acknowledging strengths. The children know what being the best they can be means and try hard to show these qualities.

The use of restorative conversations are used for children and their families to enhance the development of positive behaviour.
