and capable child. The teacher will be asked to revisit and explain their work based on this

times by upholding the 3Ps: Protection, Provision and Participation as outlined in UN
Convention on the Rights of the Child
2. Growth mindset
The teacher will participate in professional growth that addresses and challenges their own
self-belief. The ability to embrace new ideas- different truths- and move out of their comfort

will reflect the philosophy of the overall preschool and teachers will ensure it is ordered
(allowing for self- access), inviting and beautiful.

Teachers will show an avid interest in practicing in an authentically responsive way. Teachers
will make their pedagogical knowledge visible through documentation via learning stories,
reflective journals, transcribing scholars’ work, observations and narratives. They will use
technology as a tool for learning, organizing and allowing scholars to gain deeper insights

colleagues, families and the wider community using a strengths based approach.
