At Bright Beginnings we recognise the importance of communication and collaboration between families, children and educators. We develop meaningful relationships with families and children that are respectful and promote their identity and sense of belonging. We build on our cultural competence by reinforcing our empathy, diversity and social justice through recognising the importance culture plays within families, children’s and educator’s sense of belonging, being and becoming.
We support families in their parenting role and share with them information which may be of benefit to their child’s education, care and development. We encourage families to be active participators in the life of the Centre at any chosen time through sharing cultures, ideas, knowledge, strengths and differences.
The wellbeing of the families at Bright Beginnings extends to the wider community as we acknowledge the diversity of the families including all cultures and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people. We also extend partnerships to the wider community including professionals and resources to strengthen the connections between our family, community and Bright Beginnings.
