Early Education & Care Centre - Prestons


We at Prestons Early Education and Care Centre value and recognise the work and teachings of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and communities around Australia as reconciliation is about building respect. We believe in partnerships and the power of educators, children, and families coming together to build a community of learners. We acknowledge the Darug people as the Traditional Owners and Custodians of the Land on which our Centre stands.

We at Prestons Early Education and Care Centre are committed to meaningfully engaging with children, families, council, and the wider community to promote stronger relationships between Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and non-Indigenous Australians. We promote forgiveness, healing, love, and trust and aim to work together in harmony. Our Philosophy values cultural competence and respect for people of all cultural backgrounds especially Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples as the Traditional Land Owners and the First Peoples of Australia.

We at Prestons Early Education and Care Centre aim to respectfully embed daily practices that reflect our vision of working together and acknowledging and respecting the rights of the Custodians of the Land.

Prestons Early Education and Care are committed to building our knowledge and supporting and strengthening our curriculum to further children’s identities and cultural awareness respectfully.

Prestons Early Education and Care will endeavour to sustain RAP actions embedded in the daily practices. By involving the staff to explore issues of fairness, justice, equity and equality, we hope to develop a greater understanding of how to support children and families, leading to a better understanding of reconciliation guided by the RAP actions and respectful practices.
