Our child care philosophy

As a provider of care and education for young children we make every effort to create a safe, home-like environment that incorporates interesting and challenging equipment to meet the varying needs of each child. We provide quality care and a stimulating environment. Our aim is to provide a centre where children can participate in age appropriate activities which will aid their development in all areas. Varied experiences aim to foster the self esteem and confidence of all children.

Our child care and preschool program

Our child care and preschool programs include a wide range of experiences, both individual and group. These are based on the children's interests, abilities and needs involving music, language, drawing, painting, puzzles, blocks, collage, cooking, dramatic play, dance and movement. These activities allow ongoing observation and evaluation of each child's progress and they are part of our overall program.

The centre has received high quality ratings from the National Childcare Accreditation Council and all staff will work towards the regular accreditation reviews where independent reviewers assess the centre on all of its procedures, policies and activities. The centre will be regularly reviewed to ensure that all centre operations meet the new National Quality Standard for Early Childhood Education and Care under the federal government's National Quality Framework (2012).

Licencing reviews will also be carried out regularly by the Community Services Department. These extensive independent reviews will ensure that the centre maintains high standards at all times and in all areas of its operation.
