We believe in growing a love of lifelong learning
In every child, from birth to school age and beyond, to help them reach their full potential. Our philosophy is about providing foundational learning's, encouraging physical health and well being, building emotional confidence and resilience, and supporting social connectivity. We do this by offering:
Our qualified educators deliver high quality and progressive education programs and care services to your child, and are well qualified or furthering their study in early education. All of our staff hold current Blue Cards allowing them to work with children and their CPR, First Aid, and anaphylaxis and asthma management training certificates, ready to respond with any emergency situation.
At the heart of all our programs is the Department of Education’s philosophy of Belonging, Being and Becoming.
Fundamental to this, is a view of children’s lives as characterised by belonging, being and becoming:
Belonging - Experiencing belonging - knowing where and with whom you belong is integral to human existence. Children belong first to a family, a cultural group, a neighbourhood and a wider community. Belonging acknowledges children’s interdependence with others and the basis of relationships in defining identities. In early childhood, and throughout life, relationships are crucial to a sense of belonging. Belonging is central to being and becoming, in that it shapes who children are and who they can become.
Being - Childhood is a time to be, to seek and make meaning of the world. Being recognises the significance of the 'here and now' in children’s lives. It is about the present and them knowing themselves, building and maintaining relationships with others, engaging with life’s joys and complexities, and meeting challenges in everyday life. The early childhood years are not solely preparation for the future, but also about the present.
Becoming - Children’s identities, knowledge, understandings, capacities, skills and relationships change during childhood. They are shaped by many different events and circumstances. Becoming, reflects this process of rapid and significant change that occurs in the early years as young children learn and grow. It focuses on learning to participate fully and actively in society.
The Early Years Learning Framework (EYLF) offers a vision where ‘all children experience learning that is engaging and builds success for life’, which is the core of all learning programs for children aged 0 to 3 years old. As children transition into their Kindergarten Program and focus on school readiness, both academically and emotionally, our Bachelor Qualified Teachers, use the Queensland Kindergarten Learning Goals, to provide a program to develop both academic skills, which prepare children for their learning into Prep at school, but also encourages and develops the key emotional and social changes that children will face, as they begin their new journey at school.
Both early learning programs, use the fundamentals of Being, Belonging and Becoming to ensure that all children feel safe, secure and supported, throughout their learning journey.
Research shows that children should have lots of opportunities to explore and learn in their natural environment. The benefits include developing creativity, sensory awareness, concentration, problem solving and intellectual development. Physically, it also helps children acquire fitness, gross motor skills, and hand-eye coordination. It also educates children about the importance of sustainability and the importance of the environment. Our outdoor playscape includes a natural exploration zone, and we also regularly take the children on AdventureTime excursions where they can experience and get to know the world around them.
We understand the challenges that come with being a parent. Whether you are a working dad or a single mum raising twins, we are committed to a holistic approach to your child’s care. This includes providing tasty meals prepared by our qualified chef, nappies for children as required and quality programs that continue throughout 52 weeks of the year. We are all about making your life easier!
Supporting and building strong ties in our local community is important to us. We want to offer local families additional opportunities to meet, make new friends and learn more about childhood development and education. We also love supporting local businesses and working in conjunction with the local education community.
We believe in building strong parent partnerships via effective communication across a range of mediums. Parents and carers are welcome to call or email us directly at any time. Communication regarding your child’s education and care is provided both verbally and in writing, and our Story Park app, gives you log-in access to your child’s daily routines, educators’ observations and photos of your child engaging in activities throughout the day.
