    1. A unique child – Every child is a competent learner from birth who can be resilient, capable, confident and self-assured
    2. Positive Relationships – Children learn to be strong and independent from a base of loving and secure relationships with parents and/or a key person
    3. Enabling Environments  – The environment plays a key role in supporting and extending children’s development and learning
    4. Learning and Development – Children develop and learn in different ways and at different rates and all areas of learning and development are equally important and inter-connected.
