St Mary’s Early Childhood Philosophy

At the centre of St Mary’s School Early Childhood Philosophy is the importance of an environment that welcomes and inspires all children. We hope to instil a love of learning and create a safe and happy learning environment. Our school philosophy reflects the Early Years Learning Framework, the Western Australian Kindergarten and Pre-Primary Curriculum.

Each child is an important part of the family structure. As educators, we strive to develop a partnership between school, child, and family. Family input within the school is welcomed and parental involvement in the day to day activities is encouraged.
