Smithfield Montessori Academy


Our vision for reconciliation at Smithfield Montessori Academy is to enrich, enlighten and to further educate all educators, families and children within the centre. Educators, families and children will take this opportunity to develop a strong sense of understanding of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people’s cultures, histories and contributions within our education program. We value diversity within our service and, for this reason, we will provide and plan experiences that broaden children’s, families’ and educators’ perspectives and encourage them to participate, whenever possible, in connecting the home, the centre and the community. This RAP will be attached to and implemented alongside the weekly planning to eventually form part of our Quality Improvement Plan.
