Thrive Early Learning Centre Coniston

VISION FOR RECONCILIATION

Thrive Early Learning Centre Children’s Services acknowledges and values the cultural histories, heritages and traditions of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. A future where Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples are actively recognised as being the First Nations peoples of Australia; where all Australians embrace the Elders past, present and future for the wisdom and knowledge they hold and share; and where emerging leaders in local communities are supported in our vision. Thrive believes building and maintaining meaningful, ongoing relationships between Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples and the broader Australian community is fundamental to achieving our organisational purpose to maximise children’s life opportunities and outcomes and guide their learning journey. We are committed to building relationships across our organisation in partnership with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples and communities to embed reconciliation strategies across Thrive. We seek to build staff knowledge and understanding of the continuing contributions of First Nations Peoples in Australia. We believe it is important for all staff to understand the histories and current context of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples in Australia as a critical first step towards a better reconciled Australia. We seek to contribute to this through understanding true histories, learning about diverse cultures and developing respectful and responsive resources. Thrive is committed to respectfully including Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander perspectives and practices throughout our organisation, working with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander staff, children and families and community. Thrive is contributing to an Australia where Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander staff, children and families feel a sense of belonging and strong connections with community and Country; where Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples’ cultural identities are respected and culturally safety is fostered across all educational environments and where Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children are recognised and nurtured as the creators, thinkers and doers of today and tomorrow.
