Goodstart Early Learning Nightcliff


Our RAP's vision emphasises the importance of the active participation of children, families, educators, and community in Australia's reconciliation journey to improve relationships today and ensure a better society tomorrow. 

We believe that throughout the development and implementation of our RAP, our centre will get a better understanding of the cultures, and histories of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples, which aims to position us as a culturally safe place for children, families, educators, staff, and visitors.

Our team is highly motivated to learn and explore with an open and receptive approach about the best practices to include, support, interact with and learn from our local Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander community.  We acknowledge the Country of the Larrakia people on which our service is located, and believe that, through our RAP, we will improve our relationship with the Larrakia community. Through these relationships, we will work towards motivating, increasing the inclusion of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people and perspectives in our curriculum activities and our wider practices.
