Health and nutrition

At our centre, we use a number of programs and techniques to ensure the children’s bodies are as healthy as their minds. This includes the Munch and Move program, role modelling healthy choices, discussing health and nutrition at mealtime, and by enforcing these messages during games and specific health activities. Our cook provides the children with four healthy meals each day on a fortnightly menu. This menu has been developed in consultation with a dietician, who checks that it meets children’s nutritional requirements.

Activities

We take part in a number of activities at the centre including:

  • NAIDOC Week
  • Chinese New Year
  • Valentine’s Day
  • Crazy Hair Day
  • Charity events and fundraisers.

We also host visits from local community members including aboriginal elders who lead us in story time, have visits from emergency services, vets, dentists, seamstresses and yoga teachers just to name a few.

Sustainability practices

As a centre, we take steps to reduce our environmental impact, including using recycling bins where possible, collecting food scraps for pets, conserving electricity and water and accepting community donations.

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.
