Education Principles

Educational planning for the children in our centre is based on the ‘Early Years Learning Framework’, which is an emergent curriculum. This curriculum allows children to extend and enrich their learning through play-based learning experiences. It’s based on your child’s interests and development needs. Our educators continuously develop suitable programs so that a range of experiences is offered to your children and family.

  • As educators, we believe that ‘PLAY’ is your child’s unique way to learn about their world.
  • Parents are welcome at any time to visit the centre or spend time with their children and have the opportunity to participate in extra curricular activities, if they wish to do so.
  • We regularly provide educational and fun shows for your children, paid for by the centre’s owners.
  • Our staff members are happy to answer your questions and provide additional information.

Child Nutrition

To provide nutritious meals to your children, we have a qualified cook who provides menus that rotate every 4 weeks. The menus are displayed in the foyer of the centre for parents and caregivers to see. We provide your children with healthy, tasty, nutritious meals that your children will love and that meet the standards of Nutrition Australia and our families, while educating them on healthy food and meals. We are able to meet any religious, cultural or other special needs that your children may have. Any suggestions or comments on our menus are welcomed.
