Planet Childcare acknowledges Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples as the Original Custodians of Australia and recognise their cultures as part of the cultural heritage of all Australians. We pay our respects to the Dharawal people on whose Land we learn and play.
We are committed to reconciliation, and recognise the significance of culture for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children to develop their identity and sense of self. We pursue the need for our community, our environment, our service's interactions to positively reflect, promote and support the diverse identities and cultures of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children. We believe in the importance of all Australians learning about and understanding the diverse histories and current realities of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples, and the need for all Australian children to grow up in a society that acknowledges and actively values Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander histories, cultures and contributions as part of our national identity.
We will challenge insensitive and biased attitudes, practices and behaviours and ensure that current and future practices, publications and policies throughout our Early Learning Centre are respectful of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultures, acknowledge current realities and are proactive in supporting reconciliation.
Always was, always will be Aboriginal Land.
