We are providing education and care on a regular basis  and school holiday care based on demand and are meeting all requirements of the Children's Service Act and the Children’s Services Regulations 2020 and align with the   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.
