Childcare


 Being, Belonging, Becoming

 

***Our Childcare Centre is still open and we currently have vacancies ***


Learning begins in the home environment. Working in partnership with the family the Childcare setting is an extension of the child's life.  Families are encouraged to be co-contributors to the child's learning and development.  Professional, qualified and dedicated Childcare Educators provide a program that enables children to learn through exploration and stimulating experiences in a safe and secure environment.

Feel free to visit our Centre at anytime and our friendly staff will be happy to help you.

We will still offer our current session times as well and you will have the choice to extend to the later finishing time. 

If you are interested in a longer session please contact the office as we will be extending sessions to other days based on demand.

We are now APPROVED for Child Care Subsidy so you may be eligible for a rebate.
