The staff at Waratah Preschool and Nursery are selected because of their commitment to ensuring the highest quality care and education for your children. It is important to us that our families feel connected to the staff and to develop a nurturing partnership with their child’s individual carers. “Through a widening network of secure relationships, children develop confidence and feel respected and valued. They become increasingly able to recognise and respect feelings of others and to interact positively with them” (from ‘Belonging, Being & Becoming’, Early Years Learning Framework for Australia).
