Nido Early School Aveley


Our vision for reconciliation at Nido Early School Aveley is:  

  • To make visible our services' respect for the Whadjuk people as the Traditional Owners and Custodians of the Aveley area.
  • To formally acknowledge First Nations peoples' ongoing connection to the Land.
  • To promote recognition of, and respect for, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples, cultures, and days/events of significance. 
  • To forge collaborative partnerships with our local Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander community that are built on mutual respect, trust and inclusiveness. These partnerships will help to create meaningful opportunities for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander and non-Indigenous educators, children and community members.
  • To ensure that all early childhood educators at Nido Early School Aveley are committed to improving educational opportunities and outcomes for all children including Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children and that we have pedagogical practices that promote equality and equity in educational achievement between Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander and non-Indigenous children. 
  • To work towards promoting inclusion and ensuring that early childhood educators are reinforcing in their daily practice the principles laid out in the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child. The Convention states that all children have the right to an education that lays a foundation for the rest of their lives, maximises their ability, and respects their family, cultural and other identities and languages
  • To ensure that the curriculum respectfully reflects children's developing knowledge and understanding relating to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultures through intentional teaching, experiences, conversations and community involvement within our program.
  • To promote awareness of the histories and cultures of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.
