Welcome to Heritage Early Childhood Centre. Our aim is to ensure each child is given a chance to play, discover and grow in an atmosphere of care and mutual respect where the dignity and rights of the child are preserved at all times.
We believe in ‘learning through play’ with enquiry–based learning underpinning the learning process. We understand that children learn best when the program reflects their interests and has meaning for them personally.
We recognise that teaching and learning have continued to take place on the land on which our Centre stands for many thousands of years. We are honoured to continue this tradition and acknowledge the Ngunawal people as the Traditional Custodians of the land. (We use Ngunawal instead of Ngunnawal after consultation with elder Tyronne Bell).
Our Reconciliation Action Plan outlines how we embed reconciliation into our everyday practice.
Our Core Values are Identity, Respect, Community, Resilience, Contribution.
