Vision and philosophy represent the core values that inform all practice areas of a business. They are essential components for the operation of early childhood settings and are integral to the achievement of an ‘Exceeding National Quality Standard’ rating. Nevertheless, they are not always understood by educators and managers. This three-part series will expand on the meaning of vision and philosophy and explain how they can be used effectively within early and middle childhood settings.
