Inclusive Practices

We recognise Australia’s cultural diversity and acknowledge the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander People as the Traditional Custodians. We will ensure that differences in backgrounds, cultures, and abilities are valued, and that families are actively encouraged to share their experiences.

Our Inclusive Environment

We aim to provide an environment that is free from bias and prejudice in which children learn the principles of fairness and respect for the uniqueness of each person. Children are encouraged to develop their own sense of identity and educators will facilitate this in a way that embraces the needs and abilities of each child (My Time, Our Place Outcome 1).

Educators will ensure that children become aware of fairness and equity and have opportunities to practice challenging bias in their play (My Time, Our Place Outcome 2). The service involves the community to assist educators and children to understand and accept the range of cultures and abilities of members of the local community.

Differences in backgrounds, culture and abilities are valued and families are actively encouraged to share their experiences with educators and other families and cultural competence in children will be fostered. The service will ensure that appropriate inclusion support services are accessed and families are referred to them in order to support children’s well-being and full access to the program.

    Facilitating Positive Programs


    We embrace cultural differences across all of our locations. Ensuring the children who attend experience the enjoyment of learning about a new culture.


    We conduct school visits to educate and provide new kindy children a smooth transition to their new school environment.


    While we do not offer one-to-one support 3bridges will consider whether reasonable adjustments can be made to enable education and care. Each case must be dealt with on its own merits and circumstances please contact us to discuss your child’s needs.
