Educators engage with children to ensure that they feel safe, supported and respected. It is the responsibility of every staff member to make certain that the dignity and rights of every child are to be maintained at all times at the service.

Emotional development and social relationships are enhanced through thoughtful and sophisticated approaches to conversation, discussion and the promotion of children’s language and communication. Children who experience relationships that are built on respect, fairness, cooperation and empathy are given the opportunity to develop these qualities themselves. When children have positive experiences of interactions they develop an understanding of themselves as significant and respected, and feel a sense of belonging.
