PHILOSOPHY AND GOALS

  

 

 

 

MOSS VALE OUT OF SCHOOL HOURS CENTRE PHILOSOPHY

 

? MVOOSH recognises that middle childhood is the important stage that bridges the chasm between early childhood and adolescence. Educators at MVOOSH work together to create an environment that is both supportive and challenging, providing interactions that foster social, emotional, physical and cognitive development through a fun play based program. The program offers safe challenges, opportunities for decision making and leadership, and individual and group activities designed to foster positive self-esteem and confidence, whilst encouraging independence and autonomy.

? MVOOSH values and respects each child’s uniqueness and is inclusive of all children.

? MVOOSH recognises the importance and diversity of families and values each family’s involvement at the centre.

? MVOOSH management values a collaborative approach to service provision, consulting with educators, children, families and the community on relevant matters.

? MVOOSH acknowledges and values educators, for their skills and experience and for their consistency in interactions with the children.

? MVOOSH is committed to inclusive and equitable practices.

? MVOOSH believes its role is recreational play based. Whilst we support and enhance education it is the schools role to formally educate children.
