Here at BMCKC, we believe that the early years are the building blocks for later life. A stimulating, inclusive, child interest based and directed and developmentally appropriate program, delivered as part of an integrated service provides children with the best opportunity to grow, learn and discover within a safe, caring environment.

Our programs are sensitive to the individual needs of children and their families and reflect the latest research in play-based and child directed learning. We embrace the Victorian and National Early Years Learning Frameworks as current best practice in curriculum development and assessment.

We recognise that children develop in the context of their families and that this needs to be the starting point for service delivery. We believe:

• The role of our Centre in to meet the needs of families in the community requiring childcare and kindergarten through providing a consistently high level of quality care, education, and positive outcomes for all children.

• Children learn through play and that play can take on various forms, i.e. modelling, imitating, observing, experiencing, discovering, exploring, experimenting, problem solving and contemplating. These forms of play, the children’s interests and developmental level are taken into consideration as we plan the experiences, which form the basis of the curriculum. The curriculum thus, means all the interactions, experiences, activities, routines and events, planned and unplanned, that occur in our Centre environment designed to foster children’s learning and development.

• We believe that the program needs to have balance between structured and unstructured experiences and activities as well as child initiated and adult supported experiences in which children may use a range of equipment and materials, including improvising equipment and natural materials, both indoors and outdoors.

• In providing children with a link between their home experiences and values and the Centre’s family atmosphere where the tone is quality care and making it a happy place to be.
