Our Centre

 

Our Centre

The service was opened in early 2010 by Sam and Pauline Feng who purchased the centre after it was abruptly closed. During the closure the building had a make- over with staff, families and the community  rallying to provide endless support. The centre re-opened just 4 weeks after being shut. And seven years on we continue to build strong foundations for children’s learning and development.

Meals

The centre provides children with nutritious and healthy snacks for morning and afternoon tea. Families are required to provide a lunch box with nutritional lunch.

Parent Participation

We operate an open door policy, where parents and family are welcome into the centre at anytime. Parent participation sends strong positive messages to your child that you support them and are part of the child care environment. There are many levels of parent participation and we appreciate that time is of a premium for all parents, but we will be willing to accommodate any form of involvement you may desire to assist you and your child, which will ultimately benefit the whole Centre. The staff sincerely wish for you and your child to be happy and feel welcomed at our Centre. Be aware that a three way relationship between parents, care givers and the child exists in this setting. Communication is a vital ingredient to the success of this partnership.

Full Parent involvement in the Centre can be accommodated to meet your availability and commitments. Such as:-

  • Assist in fundraising
  • Attend Special activities and functions in the Centre
  • Volunteer time
  • Suggestions for programming
  • Feedback of service
  • Attend Parent/Teacher Nights
  • Assisting with the development and review of policies and procedures

 

Siblings are always welcome in our Centre when children are being dropped off, picked up or attending other Centre functions, however, the staff cannot assume responsibility for them.
