A service philosophy is more than a mission statement. The content must guide practice and provide clear vision for the service. That means that it contains information that is specific enough to guide the day-to-day decisions made by staff and management in meeting children’s developmental needs. This workshop will challenge participants to reflect on their service philosophy and guide them through a process to critically appraise how their values, beliefs and attitudes about children and families influence interactions, relationships, practices, policies, procedures, and experiences.
