KU Petersham Preschool

VISION FOR RECONCILIATION

KU Petersham Preschool's vision for reconciliation is to begin a process where we try to understand the past and how it impacts on us today. Finding connections with our local Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities in ways which are relevant and authentic, where the Preschool can both respond to needs and ideas but also learn and grow.

Working to understand white privilege and how this impacts on the lens of decision makers is important to ensure our Preschool is a place free of judgement. In our everyday practice, we have the opportunity to reach children and their families, creating opportunities for our changing attitudes and values to ripple outwards.

Mutual respect can only be achieved when the Preschool demonstrates a willingness to change and learn, understanding that all people are different and valuable. We hope that inclusion will lead to acceptance that we can all be friends and colleagues working towards a common goal within a culturally safe environment.
