Statement of philosophy
Duntroon Day Care Centre is committed to the provision of quality child care and will continue to strive towards that ideal. The children in our Centre are our reason for existence and deserve only the best care we can possibly provide.
Quality Child Care Means
• Providing a stimulating environment that helps the child further develop cognitive and motor skills and challenges them to improve those skills.
• Providing a respectful environment in which children and adults are treated as valuable individuals with rights and priviledges that should be honoured.
• Providing a cheerful environment which welcomes those who come to the centre.
• A disciplined environment in which children are guided gently but firmly towards a clear understanding of the necessary limits and are helped to develop the self discipline to stay within those limits.
