Murrindindi Family Day Care

VISION FOR RECONCILIATION

We value and recognise the work and teachings of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and communities around Australia, and as such, we wish to share our vision for reconciliation.

Murrindindi Family Day Care believes in the power of relationships. We believe in partnerships, wellbeing and the power of educators, children and families coming together to build a community of learners. We want to be an organisation that leads the way in building a better future which is based on stronger relationships between ALL Australians.

As an organisation, we believe we can contribute to our future by raising awareness and knowledge of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander histories and cultures. Through working together as a community, and including children from a young age, we can grow, learn and build a deeper understanding as together we walk the steps of the reconciliation journey.

Our journey is one we want to walk in partnership with our communities – we want to raise awareness about reconciliation, we want communities to journey with us as we seek to raise awareness of Australia's First Nations peoples as being connected to the oldest continuing cultures in human history. We want to work together with communities as we develop an understanding about, and reflect upon, the injustices which continue to impact on Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.

We believe that our reconciliation journey is about creating "a future based on mutual respect, mutual resolve and mutual responsibility". (Prime Minister Kevin Rudd, MP – Apology to Australia's Indigenous peoples, House of Representatives, Parliament of Australia, February, 2008.)
