Port Macquarie Community Preschool

Early learning service
February 2024 to February 2025

Port Macquarie Community Preschool acknowledges and values the cultural histories, heritages and traditions of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples, we pay our respect to the Traditional Owners of the Land on which we play and learn, the Birpai people. 

Our vision is a future where Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples are actively recognised as being the Traditional Owners of Lands across Australia. 

Our vision is a society where all children are educated from early childhood to have respect for and an appreciation of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander ways of knowing and being. 

Our vision is to create a visibly inclusive early childhood environment, where Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander perspectives are respectfully embedded in all aspects of our everyday practice. 

Our vision is to continue our continuous journey of learning and education for the Port Macquarie Community Preschool (PMCP) staff, children and families. 

Our vision is to continue to foster and develop respectful reciprocal relationships between Port Macquarie Community Preschool and the local Birpai community, to foster equality and equity in early childhood education for all children. 

Our vision is a belief that through reconciliation there will be justice and equity for all. 

We believe, as stated in the 2008 National Apology, that our reconciliation journey is about creating a future based on mutual respect, mutual resolve and mutual responsibility.
