Inclusion Support

Inclusion Support

Mini Miracles treat each child as an individual and will support all children to be included in our program and routines.

Our educators work together with families, school teachers and professionals to meet specific children’s needs.

Educators are aware of each individual family background in regards to culture and beliefs and provide all families with support and written material in their home language.

There will be in-service training opportunities for all staff on particular needs throughout the year and staff are encouraged to attend.

Children with a diagnosed medical condition, or ongoing behaviour problems, will not be denied care based on their disability. However, for Mini Miracles to be able to cater for their individual needs, there may be a short waiting period until funds are accessed for an additional worker, or to allow staff to receive appropriate training to better cope with the child’s individual requirements.

For further information please contact us and ask to see our Inclusion Policy, and our policy regarding guiding children’s behaviour.

Multiculturalism

Our aim is to provide a program which recognises that Australia is a multicultural society where different ethnic groups co-exist harmoniously, free to maintain and practice their language, religious beliefs and social customs, while recognising that all are equal as individuals.

Educators will include individual experiences for non-English speaking children.

Our services consult with parents/caregivers about the care of each child when there may be a conflict between the Centre’s philosophy and family values.

Parents/caregivers will be encouraged to participate in the centre program and introduce their cultures/food/craft/dress to the other enrolled children in our centre’s. The Centre will provide, within the program, activities relevant to other cultures, books, music, songs, cooking activities, craft, clothing, multicultural dolls, multicultural jigsaw puzzles, games, play equipment, posters, utensils to help foster cultural awareness. Parent information will be translated into diverse languages upon request.
