Our in-house chef works to a monthly rotating menu to deliver the best possible array of dishes and is constantly evolving it with the feedback provided by the children, staff and families of the centre. Every meal is made with fresh ingredients on a daily basis, and meal choices include a variety of seasonal fruits and vegetables. It is important to note that every meal meets Australia’s national nutrition guidelines and we are inclusive of cultural and dietary requirements as well.
We take part in a multitude of sports, art and music activities, and the children are free to sing, paint, draw and dance on a daily basis. The children love our natural environment including our dry creek bed and water park play area.
We celebrate a number of community and cultural events at the centre and take part in a number of extracurricular activities and programs including:
- NAIDOC Week
- The Diwali Lights Festival
- Chinese New Year
- Waitangi Day
- Australia Day
We welcome all children with a wide variety of abilities, backgrounds or needs. We tailor our care for each child and work closely with you to ensure they have a smooth transition into our centre. Our team cultivates a warm atmosphere of inclusion through continuous improvement and open communication. We are confident that your child will benefit from our dedicated approach to care and education.
Please speak to our staff about your child’s individual needs and how we can accommodate them. Together we can create a plan to help them reach their full potential.
Child Safety & Welfare
All aspects of our operations are in line with the National Quality Standards and the Early Years Learning Framework. This includes our Health and Safety policy. All educators follow our health and safety policies and procedures.
We take every opportunity to act as role models, pointing out tripping or slipping hazards and putting hats and sunscreen on for outdoor play. We talk about stranger danger so that children can build awareness and can freely talk to us if they are scared or worried. We aim to teach children to think about their own safety habitually too.
At all times, we ensure that our centre is secure and free of hazards, both inside and out. Fire drills and UV checks are a regular part of our informed approach to safety. We emphasise safety education by creating an atmosphere of safety awareness in all aspects of the day. You will see visual safety guides around our centre, such as our sun smart posters. These tools support our lessons about safety, which we discuss as part of the curriculum. We understand that leaving your child in someone else’s care is a difficult thing to do. We assure you that safety is our top priority and our educators follow safe practices every day.
