Our Philosophy

We apply therapy across all daily activities and routines in a fun, natural way. Therapy does not need to be a chore and once we have the foundations, the rest will fall into place.


Research tells us that if we invest time in the younger years, our children's opportunities in life will flourish.

The people who make the most significant impact on a child’s development, are their parents, guardians and carers.


So we mainly work with you. This way, progress is faster.

Our vision: For families to believe that they can be the difference in their children's possibilities.
Our mission: To give families the knowledge, skills and confidence to find their children’s strengths, so they can engage and learn.

At Dot to Dot Early Intervention our philosophy guides our policies, daily decisions and the way we work with families.

Our philosophy is in line with the Victorian Early Years Learning and Development Framework (VEYLDF) which has five (5) key areas; Identity, Community, Wellbeing, Learning and Communication working within families on their priorities.


We embody these principles by:

  • Recognising the individuality and worth of every person we meet

  • Valuing opinions, respecting beliefs and cultures to protect communities

  • Protecting a person’s sense of identity by working within their community to enhance their sense of belonging

  • Developing professional relationships, built on trust and understanding

  • Listening to the concerns, ideas, and needs of others to allow children and families to be actively involved in decision making

  • Considering the physical, social, emotional and spiritual wellbeing of individuals through a holistic approach

  • Encouraging learning within a children’s natural environment so they may become life-long learners

  • Supporting parents and carers to teach children communication skills so they may connect with their community, express their feelings and thoughts, and project their sense of identity.

Dot to Dot Early Intervention acknowledges the Traditional Owners of country throughout Australia and recognises their continuing connection to land, waters and community. We pay our respects to them and their cultures; and to Elders both past and present.

We also acknowledge and thank the South Barwon Lions Club for their donations.
