mi kids is a family owned long-day early childhood school providing a safe and nurturing environment where children are the heart of the centre. Our educators celebrate that children’s families are their first teachers and each child has a unique learning style which is scaffolded through play, inquiry, investigation, opportunity and reflection. We provide open ended resources and child-directed programs that facilitate continuous learning throughout development. Specialised educators enrich these programs and embrace and connecting with the child’s culture, identity and community.
Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples Cultures and Philosophies are genuinely respected and acknowledged and a true appreciation of the past histories of these lands is honoured throughout all practices of mikids. Engaging when sustainability, our natural surrounding environments and caring for country/place are all practices that mikids instills in an everyday basis.
We embrace the different learning styles of each child through tailored daily programs and expressed learning opportunities via, music, bodily kinesthetics, mathematics, visual, verbal, nature and grouping experiences.
We acknowledge that growth encompasses mind, body and spirit and no two children will travel the same path. We allow children every opportunity to practice social interactions, communicate their emotions and provide physical and cognitive challenges that promote their journey. In doing so we provide children with the foundations to continue their journey beyond Mikids Northern Beaches.
