Our Philosophy and Vision

We believe children thrive when they are happy, healthy, safe, and engaged in learning. Staff work alongside children to ensure they are challenged and encouraged to explore their natural curiosity, develop and test theories and think critically about their world. Each child is loved and nurtured as we partner with families as active participants in the education process.

For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well. Psalm 139:13-14


How the Centre is Managed

Gumnut Kindergarten has a Management Committee, which consists of a chairman who is a Minister of St Faith’s Church, three church family representatives and three Kindergarten family representatives, plus the director.

The committee looks after matters relating to the building and property, liaises with the church, sets fee levels and approves budgets for the spending of the funds on equipment and supplies. The day-to-day running is organised by the staff.
