Statement of Philosophy
Roseville Kids Care is a place where children play and learn within a safe, caring and supportive environment.
At RKC we aim to ensure that everyone feels a sense of belonging and is accepted and respected as an individual. The children can explore their imaginative worlds while learning positive life skills through supervised independence and collaborative team work.
Children are encouraged to challenge themselves and reach towards their full potential through play, where they can build upon their self-expression, self-direction and self-discipline. They are then able to apply these skills in a meaningful way in an environment they feel comfortable and confident in.
We aim to develop the whole child by encouraging open communication, implementing inclusive practices and celebrating diversity through our programs, play and progressive attitudes.
Active involvement of the parents and members of the community in our programs is encouraged and valued by our educators.
Our educators are committed to a cycle of self-reflection, peer-to-peer discussions and continued learning to provide a happy, healthy and safe environment.
Ultimately, Roseville Kids Care is a place where kids can be kids and play is highly valued.

More about us
At Roseville Kids Care we are committed to Article 31 of the UN Convention on the rights of the child -the child’s right to play and leisure opportunities. Free play and leisure activities provide opportunities for children to learn as they discover, create, improvise and imagine. As educators we believe that children have a structured busy day and at Roseville Kids Care we need to be as unstructured as we possibly can within the bounds of reason. We give children the choice and freedom to play within a safe and supportive environment. By giving children unstructured play time to engage in discovery, physical, creative, imaginative and manipulative play we are allowing children to develop socially, emotionally and cognitively.
We strive to create an environment with plenty of options for the children to choose from. When children choose what and how to play, they learn important skills and life lessons that are different to those they learn when playing adult-directed games and activities.
At Roseville Kids Care, educators allow time and create spaces that encourage children to explore, build relationships, solve problems and create meaning.
