What we offer
The Centre is licensed for 39 children per day for children between 0-6 years of age. The Centre provides an educational program that assists in the overall development of children, based on
the Curriculum Framework.
Children entering Kindergarten in the following year participate in a school transition program weekly, attending 2 local Department of Education Preschools, engaging in school readiness. This is followed up daily within the 3-5 years room by further developing children’s Literacy, Numeracy and Social skills.
The Centre has an open door policy and we encourage families to share any skills with our children. Families are also invited to participate in their children’s learning and development. The Centre is supported by services such as IPSU, DET, TAFE, and KU Inclusion Support Agency providing valuable resources and support plans to meet individual requirements of children with additional needs.
