Our kindergarten and child care centre is proud to have received Exceeding the National Quality Standard. The National Quality Standard encompasses the seven key quality areas that are important outcomes for children’s learning and development.
Spacious play areas for curious minds
From the moment you step into our Berwick child care centre, you’ll be immersed in a world where children are encouraged to learn and explore. Children love to explore and play in our spacious outdoor areas which feature a large yard and play equipment where children can engage all the senses. Our indoor areas invite exploration with quality resources and learning experiences. Children wonder, create, and test out their ideas as they play with a range of materials in purposeful play spaces.
Dedicated team of educators
Our longstanding team of early learning educators are passionate about nurturing and caring for children and supporting them on the early childhood education journey. Our educators bring their own personality into the rooms allowing for engaging learning environments and building strong relationships with the children. We understand that communication is critical between our early childhood education staff and families and partner with our families to keep you informed every step of the way. You will also receive daily updates and photos detailing children’s learning and development on our parent App - Xplor.
Healthy meals freshly prepared in-house
You will never need to worry about packing lunches or snacks. We provide nutritious meals created daily by our in-house cook, catering for all dietary requirements for children attending child care and kindergarten. Shared mealtimes between children and educators strengthen relationships, with opportunities to share stories and experiences, and model healthy eating practices.
Engaging programs designed to inspire
We welcome special community guests to the kindergarten and child care centre based on the children’s interests to extend on the children’s learning. Community connections support a sense of belonging for children and provide opportunities to develop social and observational skills with different people, places and environments.
