SORRY IS NOT A WORD; IT IS AN ACTION.
At Sesame Lane Child Care, we believe that “sorry” is in the demonstration of our RAP Actions, and acceptance of the wrongs of the past and the real impacts of these wrongs. We are committed to making amends for past wrongs and ensuring that these wrongs are not repeated through education, and respect for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and cultures. We will respectfully consult and seek advice from Gubbi Gubbi Elders and Traditional Custodians in our community as part of our commitment to continuous understanding and embracing of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and cultures within our centre at Clontarf Sesame Lane.
We will seek stronger relationships based upon trust and respect with our local Gubbi Gubbi community and will seek equal and equitable enrolment and participation opportunities for children and their families in our centre.
Our vision is for our workforce to encourage and support educators who identify as Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander to feel and be valued and appreciated and to foster appropriate opportunities for these educators to proudly and safely share their cultures, knowledge and expertise with all in our community.
Sesame Lane Child Care strives to be an organisation that is active in supporting reconciliation across our everyday business and community engagement activities.
We are committed to ensuring that every child and family has strong knowledge and understanding of the continued significance of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and cultures and of the stories and wisdom that Australia’s First Peoples offer us.
