Shining Stars Early Learning


We acknowledge and recognise Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander traditions, customs and histories. We celebrate and support the cultural identities of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and recognise the many different ways of knowing, being and doing.

We want to impact the community we work with and give our children and families opportunities to engage in learning and engage in our local Aboriginal culture. We understand that all children have a right to feel a sense of belonging and have their cultural identity supported and embraced within our service. We are a safe place for all children and families and welcome those from Aboriginal and Torres Strait Island backgrounds.

We are dedicated to a continuous expansion of our knowledge on contemporary issues that affect Aboriginal children and their families. 

As a community of learners we are dedicated to incorporating the Dharawal culture into our early years curriculum.  Furthermore, we will engage in continuous research and professional development and commit to making strong connections and relationships with the local Aboriginal community.
