Our values

Our vision:
Moriah children value themselves, others, and the environment.

Our purpose: Children are inspired to become active and engaged learners through high quality education, an outstanding Jewish curriculum and our ongoing commitment to sustainability

What we believe: We believe children need a warm and caring environment where families and the wider community feel connected and welcomed at all times. Children at Moriah Kindergarten are inspired, challenged, stimulated and encouraged to have fun and learn. They learn how to be a community of children; engaged, working and playing together, displaying our Moriah Values, and thinking and acting sustainably.

Our Moriah values guide our actions in the way we relate to others and the world around us, and are infused throughout our whole curriculum.
