Our Philosophy

As a trusted part of our local community, MELC aims to set high standards for quality early childhood education and care. When children commence their early learning journey with us, they are welcomed into the MELC family where they can feel safe and secure in a fun, educational and stimulating environment.

Here at MELC, we value the uniqueness of each child and family and ensure that the needs of each individual child are met throughout the day. With a child centred approach and a strong emphasis on play, children come into an environment where they can develop their independence, resilience and sense of agency through a focus on social and emotional development.

MELC recognises, values and supports families in the important role they have in their children’s lives. Establishing partnerships based on mutual trust enables us to learn from them as well as work together to make decisions to ensure their children thrive. Through strong partnerships and open communication, we value all interactions and allow families to express their ideas and opinions at any time.

We believe that our team of passionate, diverse and qualified educators are our most precious resource, each bringing fundamental qualities and skills to our service. Our dedicated team work together to support and encourage one another in providing and optimising learning opportunities for children. We acknowledge the importance of teamwork and educators extending their knowledge and skills through professional development. Valuing and acknowledging the important role of our educators is the fundamental core of our service that enables us to provide high quality education and care to our children.
