Giving Each Child Every Opportunity
To meet present and future challenges and possibilities
Our vision is a society in which each child is given every opportunity in early childhood to develop their abilities to meet life’s challenges and possibilities – today and tomorrow.
Our integrity underpins all that we do
We are trustworthy and professional. We make fair and ethical decisions to support our mission. We are honest in our communications.
We do what we say we are going to do and achieve what we set out to. We comply with all laws and regulations and proactively manage risk. We have the courage to speak out.
We celebrate diversity and belonging
We value and celebrate diversity. We foster a sense of belonging in our relationships and provide opportunities for children, families, educators, customers, and our community.
We are committed to reconciliation.
We foster collaborative relationships
We strive to build our relationships with stakeholders as partnerships. Our relationships are authentic, collaborative, and respectful. We share ideas, knowledge, and perspectives.
We genuinely seek and act on feedback. We support our people to learn and work in ways that bring out their best.
We are committed to service excellence
We are committed to providing the best possible education, care, wellbeing and health services for children and families in a financially sustainable manner.
As leaders we advocate for children and families and seek to influence practice and pedagogy. We acknowledge and value our past, but continually look to the future.
We embrace innovation and creativity
We are bold and courageous, challenging the status quo.
We take calculated risks, try new things, and learn from experience. We are curious, open-minded, and continually strive to positively impact more children in more ways.
We are creative, innovative and look for ways to work differently.
What we provide
We provide essential services for pre-school children and their families
We provide integrated early childhood education, family day care, early intervention and clinical services to thousands of children (aged from birth to school age) and their families.
One third of our services are for children and families at risk. We do this in an environment in which the value and dignity of every child is recognised.
What we promote
We promote the interests of children and families, particularly those in need
Since 1874 The Infants’ Home has championed the rights of children, women and families and protecting those at risk.
We promote the interests of children and families, particularly those in need, by providing advice to community organisations, the community sector and government.
