Goodstart Kedron

VISION FOR RECONCILIATION

At Goodstart Early Learning Kedron, we believe reconciliation is about bringing everyone together as one on even ground, with mutual respect and understanding. Reconciliation is building strong relationships between Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and all Australians. We believe that to have a reconciled Australia would be to have everyone working together to create a great place to live, with no discriminatory labels used or differences held against others, and with peace and harmony across the country.

At our centre we not only care about and respect everyone's cultural heritage, but we also promote reconciliation by actively introducing children to diverse learning experiences, ensuring we are inclusive of all cultures and celebrate all important days at the centre. Our aim is to ensure that everyone is brought together and feels part of our community, and acknowledge the particular place of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples in Australia’s reconciliation journey.

To ensure we are working towards an inclusive centre and guide us on our reconciliation journey, we will seek advice from the community, Elders, educators, children and families. If we can develop a deeper understanding of our roles in regards to reconciliation, then we will be able to visibly see our centre working together.
