Secure, respectful and reciprocal relationships are integral to learning, wellbeing and working collaboratively with others.

Shared decision making with children, colleagues and families assist children to feel secure, collaborate with others and take responsibility for their own learning.

Respecting and responding to diversity assists all children in attaining a sense of belonging, being and becoming.

An ongoing cycle of review is a way in which current practices are examined, outcomes reviewed, new ideas generated and professional learning continued.
