Windsor Community Children’s Centre Co-op (WCCC) was established in 1977 on the traditional land of the Boon Wurrung people of the Kulin nation as a not-for-profit community-based early childhood education and care service.

We continue to lead for and respond to the needs of a diverse community by maintaining a collaborative culture of reflection. Through our commitment to evolving contemporary practices built upon the rights of children, families, educators and the wider community, we foster an open and supportive environment. With this view and connection to our heritage, we engage continuously with place, learning, practice and aspirations to drive a learning culture.

Place

Respect is ingrained in our Centre through our deep connection to people, place, land and culture.

We strive to harness sustainability in partnership with the constructed and natural environments.

Learning

We demonstrate our commitment to quality through our relationships with children and strong connections to the community with a focus on respect, kindness and empathy.

We support children to evolve into confident, independent thinkers with a strong sense of identity and the knowledge and understanding to effectively communicate their values and rights.

Practice

We value the uniqueness of every child and support through contemporary teaching practices and empowering their sense of agency.

With a multidisciplinary approach and the support of external services, we use theories of attachment, scaffolding, inquiry and kinship to underpin our decisions about teaching and learning.

Aspirations

We aspire to collaborate as a community with a vision of creating reciprocal inquiry-based adventures with children and families.

We seek to advocate within our sector using a wide range of influences and inspirations.

We aim to follow an anti-bias curriculum with an outcome of creating secure, respectful and reciprocal relationships that value diversity among all people.
