Mission Statement

Hosca supports children’s development, strengths and potential through child-centred, engaging, collaborative teaching with a learning environment inspired through nature and driven by children and families.






Hosca’s philosophy recognises the benefits of providing a holistic learning experience for our children in a caring, enriching environment supported by skilled, knowledgeable and passionate Educators who value families and the community.


Here at Hosca;

Children are valued for their individuality and for their wonder and curiosities. We believe in children’s right to PLAY.

  • We believe that children must have some control over the direction of their learning and be given endless ways and opportunities to express themselves

  • All children have the right to learn through play which should be fun, exciting, challenging, hands-on, stimulating, relaxing, interactive, comforting and spontaneous

  • We feel that it is important to provide guidance and opportunities for children to discover, explore, create, investigate, practice theories, experiment, solve problems, express ideas and be calculated risk takers with the support of other children and the educators

  • We believe in celebrating children’s play, discoveries and learning and will do so through reflection, meaningful documentation, and learning stories


Parents and families are valued for their beliefs and traditions along with their commitment to work, home and community.

  • Parents are viewed as partners, collaborators and advocates for their children
