Principal's Message

Dear Families,

We warmly welcome you to the Isabella Plains Early Childhood School (IPECS) Community where our mission is to ‘engage and  equip children as active learners and empower families as partners in education’.

In partnership with Communities@Work, we offer a holistic service which focuses on high quality learning, integrated service delivery and family support and participation. These services are offered in a natural environment, retaining a close connection to nature that fosters a responsibility to our environment and an acknowledgement of the custodians of the land on which we live, work and play.

We celebrate the diversity of our families and value children’s individual life experiences of community, culture and relationships.  You, our families, are partners in education and work closely with us to support your child’s growth:  academically, physically, socially and emotionally.

We explicitly teach the learning skills, assets and dispositions required for 21st century learning using the framework of the 7 C’s which stand for Communication, Collaboration, Commitment, Craftsmanship, Creativity, Curiosity and Confidence.

Our school values are worked around IPECS PRIDE. We value Play, Respect, Integrity, Diversity and Effort.

In partnership with you we aim to achieve our vision of IPECS graduates as happy, confident and resilient citizens of the world who are environmentally responsible and positively impact others and the world around them.
