Lilly Pilly Little School offers a safe home-like environment based on the National Quality Standard for Early Childhood Education and Care and we are guided by the Early Years Learning Framework and the Child Safe Codes of Conduct.
We are the bridge between home and school where a sense of wonder can be nurtured and nourished with respect, reverence and awe.
In our heart of Lilly Pilly lives Rhythm, rhyme and repetition.
In our soul of Lilly Pilly lives Play, predictability and positivity.
In our actions of Lilly Pilly lives connection before direction.
We strive to nurture in each child a sense of Belonging. We recognize that the child's family is their first teacher and we strive to extend on this by helping to make the children feel as safe, warm and comfortable as possible and part of our Lilly Pilly Home and Family. Predictability is vitally important.
To nourish in each child a sense of Being, to experience what is happening now,life in the present. For the children in our care to fully experience being four or five years old without the pressure of feeling rushed or hurried to grow up. For
the Kingdom of Early Childhood to be celebrated within our Lilly Pilly home so the children feel celebrated and accepted for who they are and that the children are given space and time to enjoy their childhood . Play is vitally important.
For the children to feel supported in their sense of Becoming as they experience changes as they grow, learn and develop and for our educators to honour and respect the unfolding development of the children in our care. We advocate for schools preparing to receive the child rather than preschools preparing the children for school. Respect is vitally important.
We strive to uphold a sense of respect, reverence, belonging and connection for everyone who enters our door; children, guardians, educators and visitors all.
