Acknowledgement of Country

At Shirley Robertson Children's Centre, we would like to acknowledge that we teach, learn and play on Wurundjeri land.

We are committed to embedding Aboriginal and Torres Strait

Islander cultures and histories into our everyday learning. We will contribute to reconciliation by

encouraging our children and families to acknowledge, respect and value the cultural histories,

heritages and traditions of First Nation peoples.


Shirley Robertson’s Children's Centre acknowledges Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people as

the First Peoples of this nation and the Traditional Owners of the land on which we work and play.

We recognise their continuing connection to culture, land, water and community. We pay our

respects to Elders past, present and emerging.


Why is it important to include
First Nations Culture into our programs?

Understanding, utilising and respecting Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander child-rearing practices strengthens culture and helps to foster a strong sense of belonging for children and families. Children have a special place within family and community.
