At Beginnings Early Learners, we believe the program needs to:

* Be developmentally appropriate and caring
* Be concerned with every aspect of each child's development
* Reflect the multicultural nature of our Australian society
* Be challenging, interesting, and varied, providing lots of choices
* Involve parents in its planning, implementation and evaluation

"Influenced by this belief, the child is beheld as beautiful, powerful, competent, creative, curious, and full of potential and ambitious desires." - Valarie Hewitt

The programs encourages children to:

* Makes choices
* Develop creative abilities
* Problem solve
* Negotiate and cooperate with others
