Our Values

Our values underpin how we work as an organisation, and as individuals within it.

Fun - We believe that having fun and making friends is fundamental to a person’s happiness.  Fun is a release.  It provides freedom, enjoyment, fulfilment, and connection.

High Quality - We provide safe, creative, exciting, collaborative spaces/experiences for our children, staff and volunteers. We always strive to be and do better.

Inclusive - We support, value, and respect each other. Shared values and goals help everyone reach their full potential.

A Can Do Attitude - We focus on what our children, staff and volunteers can do.  By recognising and celebrating achievements, big and small, we empower individuals and our community.

Honesty - We take responsibility for our successes and failures.  We are open to what is possible, not afraid to fail, and we learn quickly.
