St Luke’s preschool recognises the importance of early childhood education and excellent care. Each child is unique and is a creation of God. We believe that each child has a right to education and to excellent quality care regardless of difference. St Luke’s offers an excellent social environment that supports and cares for every individual child’s interests, strengths and stages.
God instigated the family as the central unit primarily responsible for nurturing and teaching of children. We recognise the family is the most influential part of each child’s life.
Cultural diversity is important at St Luke’s Preschool and is reflected in the way we integrate each child's uniqueness into a program that embraces children as capable, competent learners so resilience, self-esteem and self-confidence can be fostered.
We contribute actively to our local community, as we believe it is the benefit from being mutually dependent. Our service is a link to the broader community as we provide connections to support and care to local practitioners, facilities and services that enhance and support the family unit.

The learning environment becomes the third teacher in our setting. The environment is set to communicate our values and provide a rich repertoire of learning for children. More information can be found on page 14 of the Parent Handbook available here.
