"We at Kiama Preschool take every opportunity to observe Dharawal Country, it is through this observation that guides much of our program. Alfie (4 years) “When it was raining, I still went to Sur Beach. I was a little bit scared of the thunder storm but a lot happy. There was a spider web and the spider, and it was holding a cloud shape leaf and it had little drops of rain on it. I wore a raincoat, and I used an umbrella.” Experiencing and understanding nature and our place in it is an important aspect of our philosophy and embedded into our program. Our natural setting provides an array of experiences to nurture children’s learning, curiosity and creativity as well as gaining a deeper understanding of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander ways of knowing and being. Learning about Country allows opportunities for both children and educators to engage with culturally responsive pedagogies."
