CASS has a vision of providing high quality services for people of all ages., from new born to late life - always the first choice of service users and their family members.  We recognize the uniqueness of each child and commit to respect and maintain the rights and dignity of children. We understand play is essential for individual children’s learning, development and wellbeing and we, working in partnership with families, are committed to providing quality care within a caring environment that embraces diversity.

Goals & Objective

The overall aim of CASS Family Day Care is to promote the well-being of children under our care through our risk management efforts and non-discriminating practice in child care programs. We value and believe in a caring and stimulating environment which provides safety and security for children.

 

Individual children are valued and encouraged to choose activities in which they are interested. Play enables children to learn by ‘hands on experiences’. We recognise that play is the means by which young children develop their physical, intellectual and social/emotional skills.

 

At CASS Family Day Care we value and believe in fairness, equity and inclusion of all families, children, staff and educators. We value the importance of relationships to children’s health, wellbeing and development.
