Natural play areas for little explorers
Our child care centre offers a homely and welcoming environment for your child. Each area is specifically designed with young learners in mind. Our smaller size allows educators to get to know the children in each room. Inside, you’ll find open and spacious rooms with leading-edge, play-based educational programs and tools to support each child’s development.
Our natural outdoor play areas encourage play-based learning in a natural setting with real trees and grass and also provides ample cover for shade and all-weather play. Our outdoor environments include water play, sandpits, mud kitchen, slide, climbing equipment, indigenous bush tucker garden and pet chickens that lay fresh eggs daily for our families. We explore our outdoor play area regularly with our bush kindy curriculum. Our child care centre’s outdoor play area also provides ample shade and cover for all-weather play.
Nutritious meals freshly prepared in-house
You will never need to worry about packing lunches or snacks. We provide nutritious meals created daily by our in-house cook, catering for all dietary requirements – our menu is designed with approval from NSW health’s munch and move program. Shared mealtimes between children and educators strengthen relationships, with opportunities to share stories and experiences, and model healthy eating practices.
Dedicated educators and high-quality programs
Our longstanding team of child care educators strive to create a calm, comfortable and nurturing early childhood education environment where each child feels safe. The highly-trained team of early learning educators are hand-picked to support the children and their individual learning. Our curriculum is guided by the Early Years Learning Framework (EYLF), and our learning environment encourages children to learn through play and become inquisitive and curious members of society. You will receive daily updates and photos detailing children’s learning and development on our parent App – Xplor.
Our School Readiness program is taught by our team of passionate early learning educators led by our bachelor-qualified teacher to ensure your child is supported for their transition to school every step of the way. With a focus on language, literacy, numeracy, social skills and more, your child will become school ready.
Extracurricular activities and community-focused learning
We support our children’s physical development, needs and strengths with specialised early childhood education programs that involve music, sustainability, Taekwondo classes and sports. These child care programs promote fine and gross motor development, social and emotional skills. The children regularly take outings to build their sense of community through our Bush & Beach Kindy Program to the local parklands.
