Presented by Philip Butler
This webinar will provide a clear map to developing and reviewing your centre's philosophy, ensuring it is representative of the team’s and community values and beliefs – a document everyone has a connection to. A philosophy is more than a document on display in the foyer. It is the essence of who you are. A philosophy is a clearly defined statement, it is easily communicable and provides teams and families with a clarity of vision, beliefs, and expectations of quality. Concise with clear messages, it is a living document that is everyone’s responsibility, both to develop and implement. With some simple planning and support, the bringing together of a meaningful philosophy, which everyone feels a connection to, can be one of the best culture-building activities you can do with the team this year. We will also look at some examples of philosophies from around Australia, as well as the regulatory requirement regarding philosophies, and their maintenance.
- knowledge of a clear and definable philosophy check-up process
