- Each child is special and unique. All children should be treated equally and individually, every child’s social and cultural background is respected and accepted.
 Children are competent to develop self discipline, self directed learning, responsibility, cooperation and problem-solving skill by being guided with positive discipline and positive reinforcement is an effective tool in guiding children through their play.
- Staff members understand that caring is the core of early childhood education. Staff members build trust, express warmth, communicate and support children. 
- Staff members keep the information about the children, family and colleges in confidential; pursue continuing knowledge skills; need to be professional competence.
- Staff members work in partnership with families to ensure the best outcomes for children and to support families in meeting their responsibilities to their children.
