Maroondah Occasional Care


Maroondah Occasional Care strives to implement a Reconciliation Action Plan which fosters respectful, reciprocal relationships with Australia's First Nations Peoples. We endeavour to engage with and respectfully embed Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples’ perspectives within the service program and the wider community. Creating our second RAP has provided us with a format to continue to develop and deepen ongoing opportunities for children, educators and the community to become involved with and meaningfully embed the perspectives, traditions and histories of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. Our Service knows the value and importance of acknowledging, respecting and working alongside Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.

We are committed to continuing and broadening our understanding of reconciliation and how that is enacted with children and our community. We will continue to work towards addressing implicit biases and creating opportunities for these to be addressed within our community. We endeavour to address these through critical reflection, education, professional development and commitment to reconciliation.
