KU Figtree Preschool staff and families believe we can learn from Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, particularly the Dharawal people in our local community, about the impact of Australia’s policies on them as First Peoples.
Our vision for Reconciliation is a workplace culture that embraces both Abotiginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and non-indigenous Australians, and embodies equity, acceptance and a celebration of our shared history.
We commit to working towards a safe and equitable place for all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children, families and community peoples, by continually reflecting on our practices, and listening to what Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people are asking us to do .
We believe that we should examine our personal bias and recognise ways to redress any negative opinions or behaviours that we may have unconsciously held and ensure our teaching promotes the rights and strengths of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and their cultures.
We aim to provide a welcoming environment for all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and pledge to value their knowledge and hope to promote programs, as they lead the way in sharing their knowledge with us.
