Great Beginnings Ellenbrook

VISION FOR RECONCILIATION

At Great Beginnings Ellenbrook, it is our ultimate goal to create an inclusive environment that demonstrates and embeds respect for diversity. In order for this to be possible, we must first understand what diversity is and how we can use these understandings to influence our teachings. Promoting inclusion and respect for diversity is a big part of the process of reconciliation and it is important that we are communicating effectively how we as a service are contributing to this process. To us, reconciliation is about sharing knowledge, interests, histories and cultures with an important focus on Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander histories, cultures and contributions and intertwining these so that children and families within our service have a better understanding of the community around them. When people have the opportunity to learn in such an environment and are given the correct knowledge, it then provides for opportunities for continuous embedded practices that respect both inclusion and diversity. Reconciliation is not something that can happen overnight, therefore, it is important that it remains an ongoing process as we keep up with the forever changing world around us. At Great Beginnings Ellenbrook we strive to support the children and families within in our care as we embark on this reconciliation journey together and continue to make meaningful connections within the community and the world around us.
