Goodstart Cheltenham


Our vision for reconciliation is to create an environment that acknowledges, supports, and bridges the gap, creating a feeling of unity between Aboriginal and Torre Strait Islander people and other Australians. We endeavour to acknowledge and embrace the Traditional Owners of the Land and demonstrate value and respect to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples’ histories and perspectives, whilst also respectfully embedding authentic Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander learning into our service in partnerships with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander families and the local community.

We hope to achieve this in our service by implementing respectful and educational opportunities for children and families whereby we create an inclusive and diverse community that continually works together to support and acknowledge Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander histories and cultures. We also understand that our RAP journey will be an ongoing and continuous one and are committed as a service to continually reflect, enhance and develop our knowledge educating ourselves to always strive for better ways to support reconciliation.
