Goodstart Braddon


Goodstart Braddon's vision for reconciliation encompasses a commitment to building community partnerships based on mutual trust and respect; recognising the cultural rights of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples; respecting and valuing the insights that we gain as we establish strong links between Goodstart and the children, families, employees and communities with whom we work and strong links between Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and all other people of Australia; and supporting equality and equity in education and employment.

Underpinning our Centre’s Reconciliation Action Plan is an aspiration to understand and value Aboriginal, Torres Strait Islander and non-Indigenous cultures, rights and experiences based on trust, respect and our strong key educator relationships with children and families. We will facilitate equal and equitable participation in a range of opportunities that value the unique rights of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. In alignment with the recommendations within Early Childhood Australia’s A Guide to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander histories and cultures: The important first step to reconciliation, we will intentionally and respectfully teach about Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultures and heritage to promote a shared national identity that understands and accepts the wrongs of the past and ensures they are never repeated.
