STATEMENT OF INTENT
NURTURE… LEARN … GROW
St Osmund’s Pre-School we provide an environment which supports and values every child, and which recognises their developing independence and individuality.
To give opportunities to inspire, discover and explore through play-based experiences.
To acknowledge that children are natural learners and communicators.
To ensure that every child will be happy and secure in our professional care.
To work together with parents to provide a positive start for children. Children to become confident, independent learners and gain skills which promote a positive attitude to learning.
To build a strong relationship between the local community, to learn about and appreciate our role as part of the national and global communities and to foster an understanding of the importance of being a responsible citizen.
St Osmund’s Preschool have become Koala Protectors with a donation of £25. We will track our Koala Bear and receive updates from the Veterinary clinic on how he is doing.
It is so important that our children understand at an early age the responsibility they have in being ‘Good Stewards’ of our world.
Even without these fires, trees are being bulldozed and land cleared at an unprecedented rate. Koala populations have declined by a staggering 42% over 20 years alone and the koala is at serious risk of becoming extinct in both NSW and Queensland.

Children will explore the concept of Valentines Day. Having a particular Valentine's Day is a very old tradition, thought to have originated from a Roman festival. The Romans had a festival called Lupercalia in the middle of February - officially the start of their springtime. It's the day when people show their affection for another person or people by sending cards, flowers or chocolates with messages of love. Who was St Valentine? The day gets its name from a famous saint, but there are several stories of who he was. The popular belief about St Valentine is that he was a priest from Rome in the third century AD.
