Code of Ethics
Our early childhood code of ethics ensures that your child is cared for in a safe and nurturing environment.
- Every child is unique and as such has the potential to grow physically, intellectually, emotionally and socially.
- Each child will pass through various stages in their early childhood life and those stages are important to the individual.
- Play is an important and essential part of every child’s life.
- Our work with children will be based upon their interests and we value the contribution children can make to their own learning process.
- Children have the right to high self-esteem.
- We need to help children to interact effectively, balancing their rights and needs with those of others.
- Children are vulnerable and therefore require effective role models to help them interact effectively with other children and adults.
- All children are entitled to a safe, healthy and aesthetically pleasing environment, as this will enhance their autonomy, initiative, self-worth and dignity.
- Our work with children should be based on the best theoretical and practical knowledge of childhood practices.
- There is a special relationship between each child and their family and we will support this relationship in our work with children.
- We will work with children to promote acceptance of gender, age, race, religion, language, culture and ability.
- We need to be proactive in promoting respect for children and therefore will not engage in any practice that undermines any child’s sense of Belonging, Being and Becoming.
