Randwick OOSH Philosophy


We acknowledge the traditional custodians of this land, the Gadigal people of the Eora Nation and pay our respects to Elders both past, present and emerging. We promise to respect their land, its people and elders.

We aim to provide an environment and culture that is welcoming, supportive, stimulating, inclusive and creates a sense of belonging.

We strive to make each child feel important and welcome regardless of their background and social worlds.

We believe that ROOSH should be a fun and safe place, whereby children have a voice and are involved in decision making surrounding programming and planning.

At ROOSH we recognise and value the importance of play. We aim to offer a program that provides ample opportunity for play, which in turn supports children’s learning and development.

We value family partnerships and have an open-door policy. Families are encouraged to get involved, contribute to the Educational Program and overall service and help inform decisions.

We know that children are deeply connected to their world and community and we are committed to facilitating that. We value our community and support active engagement, authentic participation, networking and contribution. We strive to influence the community for the better, through our programs and actions.

All educators at ROOSH are expected to be positive role models and be actively involved in facilitating children’s play and learning. We have qualified and experienced staff and ongoing professional development is a priority within our service.

Hygiene and lifestyle skills are scaffolded in our environment through an educative process.

We are committed to contributing towards a more sustainable future, by embedding practices that promote the protection and preservation of our environment.

We work within a critically reflective framework and it influences our decisions and practice across all aspects of the service.

We are advocates for children’s rights and support and promote the UN’s Convention on the Rights of the Child.

Giving back, empowering children and encouraging empathy and action, is important to us and is facilitated through our passion driven practices.

We endeavour to provide a high-quality service by following and implementing the National Quality Framework.

At ROOSH we aim to teach acceptance, respect and provide positive lifelong memories.
