our philosophy

We believe every child has been born with a destiny that he inherently seeks to fulfil. His destiny is forged by an interchange with his inherent qualities, social relationships and what Malaguzzi called the ‘Hundred Languages of Children’

We believe that every child has a right to childhood, a time to explore his creativity and competencies in his own way, and in his own time.

We acknowledge all cultures and those of our traditional owners, yet we seek to create our own evolving culture, an ethos where the child’s well-being lies at its heart. 

Our learning environment is based on social constructivism and a pedagogy of ‘listening’ or being present to nature of which we are part.

We strive to generate a lively culture of exchange, where honesty, transparency, generosity, accountability and good stewardship are ever present.

We believe in building a warm and vibrant community underpinned by positive relationships with our families who are central to their child’s developing identity and well-being.

Como Children Educators are a collective of diversely skilled and passionate ‘artists’ who believe collaboration, critical reflection and personal development are vital for continuous improvement.

We advocate for children’s voices to be valued and included in the community through active participation in our local community.

Our architectural elements convey light, consider the child’s point of view, and communicate the fluidity of our work. The environment; spaces, materials and experiences reflect those who inhabit its walls and together, Como Children is our evolving work of art.

“The child has a hundred languages

a hundred hands
a hundred thoughts
a hundred ways of thinking of playing,
of speaking
a hundred,
always a hundred ways of listening
of marveling, of loving
a hundred joys for singing and understanding
a hundred worlds to discover
a hundred worlds to invent
a hundred worlds to dream.”
