Our Philosophy

We believe that children are curious, creative, capable and competent learners.

Reggio Emilia approach

1st Impressions adopts The Reggio Emilia approach to early childhood education and views young children as individuals who are curious about their world and have the powerful potential to learn from all that surrounds them.

Educational, psychological, and sociological influences are important factors to consider in understanding children and working to stimulate learning inappropriate ways.

At 1st Impressions Early Learning Centre, we believe that children are curious, creative, capable and competent learners. Educators strive to work in close partnerships with families to provide high-quality care and education for children within a warm, welcoming and safe environment that feels like their second home. We highly respect and value diversity, thus we promote and encourage multiculturalism, which is evident with our staff members, educational program and in our classroom settings. Your children are offered a strong educational programming through our early introduction to academics that will prepare them to become well-rounded individuals.

School Values
Physical safety

Our center is designed under the education facilities’ design standards, creating high-quality learning environments that optimize the participation of children and ensure safety.

Mental safety

1st impressions aims to develop a secure base which is provided through a relationship with sensitive and responsive attachment figures (the educators) who meet children’s needs and to whom the children can turn as a safe haven, when upset or anxious.


We believe strongly in being accountable for children’s educational, psychological, and sociological development. We do not only provide daycare services but also aim to contribute to the learning outcomes, mental health, and social skills of our children.


1st impressions respects cultural diversity as Australia is a multicultural country. We always encourage our children to identify the strengths of their own cultural backgrounds while at the same time help them to learn and integrate with the local culture with humility.
