Our Philosophy 

 

Camp Gan Izzy delivers educational services and programs to children from two months old to early teens, where we aim to share the warmth, joy and soul of Judaism with others, using a non-judgmental approach in a safe and nurturing environment.

 

Our Early Learning Centre known as Ganeinu is for babies to preschool aged children of all cultures and backgrounds and aims to maximise the future potential and opportunities available for every child through our educational program, focussing on each child’s physical, social, emotional , communication and cognitive needs using a Whole Child approach. Jewish traditions and values are embedded into our educational program in a culturally diverse and inclusive ‘home away from home’ environment where we connect and unite families of all backgrounds as a community.

It is our aim that this awareness will give the children a strong sense of identity and self-esteem, motivating them to develop positive character traits, being respectful of others within society, and contributing positively towards their families, community, environment and society at large.

Our service promotes a holistic approach to family values, relationships and community belonging and inclusiveness, which is embedded in the program. We also aim to create collaborative partnerships with families and provide offerings that benefit both the children and their families. We provide meaningful and long term connections with our families and community.

All educators show respect for and promote Jewish culture, values and traditions and are dedicated to achieving quality outcomes for children. Educators develop the service through ongoing reflection and collaboration with parent representation.
