Health and Nutrition

Every day, our qualified in-house cook prepares delicious and nutritious meals that include a variety of flavours and textures for your child to try. Even the fussiest of eaters can be tempted by home-style favourites like spaghetti bolognaise and tuna bake, and we also cater for special dietary requirements. Our fresh food menu works on a six-week rotation, so there is plenty of variety. We encourage family input into our menu choices.

Mealtimes also present great opportunities for learning. Our Munch and Move program teaches our children about taking care of their bodies through activities such as cooking demonstrations, regular dental visits and physical check-ups. Our educators also support children to look after their wellbeing by choosing safe behaviours like climbing correctly and being sun-safe when playing outside.

Activities

Whether it is construction equipment, our home corner area or arts and crafts resources, we provide plenty of non-structured, open-ended activities to spark your child’s interest and creativity. We also have a variety of outdoor play options like a sand pit, obstacle course, trampolines and bikes so that all children can challenge themselves and have fun in a safe and healthy environment.

Many of our activities include cultural aspects, teaching children about different cultural traditions that enrich our community life. Sharing music, stories, dress-ups and puppets, as well as festivities around cultural celebrations, all help our children understand and respect different ways of life. Some of the occasions we celebrate include:

  • Australia Day
  • Ramadan
  • NAIDOC Week
  • Harmony Day
  • Chinese New Year

Children with Additional Needs

We welcome all children with a wide variety of abilities, backgrounds or needs. If your child requires extra medical, emotional or learning support, we will tailor our care for them and work closely with you to ensure they have a smooth transition into our centre. This includes seeking support from other networks or professionals to bridge any gaps in our service delivery.

Some of the additional needs and support which can be provided at our centre include but are not limited to:

  • English as a second language
  • Autism spectrum
  • Dyslexia
  • Physical disabilities
  • Minor or serious medical conditions
  • Emotional issues

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 and have access to these online.

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 safety practices every day.

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 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.
