ELC Policies

The Szalmuk Family and Fink Karp Ivany Early Learning Centres operate in accordance with extensive regulations that govern all registered kindergartens. The policies developed by Mount Scopus Memorial College incorporate the required regulations, the PYP guiding principles and other areas of best practice to provide our children with a safe, warm and happy environment as they commence their educational journey.

The College's Child Protection policy is the overarching policy document, to which several of the Early Learning Policies refer and are subject.
