Breakfast Point Child Care

VISION FOR RECONCILIATION

At Breakfast Point Childcare Centre, we respect all cultures and acknowledge and value the cultural histories, heritages, traditions and continued contributions of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.

Breakfast Point Child Care centre understands that reconciliation between Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and other Australians is the responsibility of all Australians. We recognise the significance of belonging for all children and families to grow and reach their full potential.

Our vision is to provide leadership to others in supporting relationships that are respectful, welcoming and inclusive for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. We wish for a future where Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples are recognised and respected as the First Nations people of Australia where all Australians embrace Elders past, present and future for the wisdom and knowledge they hold and share, and support emerging leaders in local communities.

Breakfast Point childcare centre’s vision for reconciliation is based on the core principles of community, capacity and collaboration, which underpin our work in children’s education and care services. As the Traditional Owners and Custodians of Australia, the Torres Strait Islands and the surrounding waters, the First Peoples have so much to share with us as we strive for more ethical, interconnected and inclusive communities.

We believe that our Reconciliation Action Plan will provide practical strategies for building and renewing deeper partnerships and engagement with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities, organisations, families and individuals so that we can learn from each other as we work to build a more equitable and socially just nation.

We would love to contribute to an Australia where all staff, children and families feel a sense of belonging and strong connections with community and Country. A Country where Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples’ cultural identities are respected and all students are comfortable in their surroundings; and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children are recognised and nurtured as the creators, thinkers and doers of today and tomorrow.
