About Us

  • Parent Involvement
    Parent involvement is an important part of the culture at our centre, where everyone feels welcomed and valued. Special activities are arranged during the year to allow all family members to partake in the centre’s activities and a chance to meet other families.

    Our Wallaby Room 3-5 yr olds have Pottery classes held every Monday and alternate Thursdays. For term 3 the children will be learning mosaicking.

    We have x2 field trips per year these are held during term time or during school holidays so siblings and families can participate in the experience. We have been to the Adelaide festival theatre this year to see “were going on a bear hunt”

    Our Beliefs
    “Learning and teaching should not stand on opposite banks and just watch the river flow by; instead, they should embark together on a journey down the water. Through an active, reciprocal exchange, teaching can strengthen learning how to learn.”  – Loris Malaguzzi (1920-1994)

    We believe in providing the highest quality of care and education for your child, by working as a team to provide a loving, secure and nurturing home like environment, filled with developmentally appropriate materials.

    We believe that the first six years of a child’s life is crucial to their development and potential, since during this time the child’s power of absorption is the highest and when certain essential skills are more readily learned.

    We believe children have a natural curiosity and love for knowledge. We believe that all children develop and learn at their own pace and need time and encouragement to attempt tasks in a supportive environment. 

    We believe children who are given the freedom to follow and pursue their interests and challenge their strengths, are generally happy and busy children. We will provide opportunities for children to exercise and develop their capabilities and reach their full potential in all areas of life, including: practical life experiences, sensorial, language, mathematics, art & music, geography, and science, as well as physical, social and emotional development.

    We believe all children are individuals, and should be given the respect that they deserve. We will strives to instil in each child a sense of acceptance and understanding through our diverse learning environment.

    We believe in the importance of the child parent relationship, together we can make a difference. We believe that parent input and involvement, promotes the strong link between the early childhood program and the family unit. We acknowledge and respect the many different social and cultural backgrounds and diversity of children in our care, and the experiences these bring from the home environment. We will aim to foster continuity between home and the centre.

    We believe by ensuring that the centre strives to meet excellent quality standards in accordance with those set by the National Accreditation Council, that we are giving peace of mind to families who use our child care and in doing so we are helping them balance their work and family life.
