Our Educational Program is aligned to  the
National Quality Framework

 National Quality Framework

The educational program contributes to the following outcomes for children:

  • the child will have a strong sense of identity

  • the child will be connected with and contribute to his or her world

  • the child will have a strong sense of wellbeing

  • the child will be a confident and involved learner

  • the child will be an effective communicator.

Educators take all reasonable steps to ensure education and care is provided in a way that:

  • encourages children to express themselves and their opinions

  • gives children the opportunity to become self-reliant and develop self-esteem

  • always maintains the dignity and rights of each child

  • gives positive guidance and encouragement towards acceptable behaviour

  • has regard to the family and cultural values, age, physical and intellectual development and abilities of each child being educated and cared for by the service

We recommend transitioning your child into Occasional Care in our community and  family friendly service.

Child Safe Standards and our Service

We are committed to providing an  environments where all children are safe, including those that are vulnerable and from diverse backgrounds.

We ensure that all Children feel safe, and their voices are heard about decisions that affect their lives.

We provide environments that inspires confidence, friendship, security, and happiness.

Reconciliation at our Service

Reconciliation is part of  everything we do, we strive for a socially just and equitable Australia that is free of racism. We recognise our enormous opportunity every day, to shape the next generation of Australia’s children to recognise and respect Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultures and heritage as a proud part of a shared identity. 

Childcare Subsidy (CCS)

The childcare subsidy is a financial assistance to cover the cost of child care.  

How much you receive depends on a number of factors, including your family’s income, the age of your child, and the paid and unpaid activities, like your job or volunteer work, your family is involved in.  

Extra support is available for some families, such as grandparents and great grandparents, and families experiencing temporary financial hardship. 

The CSS is paid directly to providers to reduce the fees you pay.
