About us

We are a family owned and operated company since 2004 that is dedicated to providing quality child care. We understand that deciding on a centre for your child will be one of the most important decisions you will have to make. We know this because we are parents as well and we have had to make the same decision. This is why the standards we set at our centres are those we expect for our own children.

Our aim is to function as an extended family in order to provide your child with the security, warmth and love which are essential to their development and growth. We know that the most important thing to a parent is the health and happiness of their child and this is what our dedicated and caring staff strive to achieve every day.

We welcome you to our family and look forward to sharing this special and important time with you and your child.

Our Philosophy

We strive to provide high quality early childhood services.

 

Our aim is to equip the children with the life skills that will enable them to experience fulfilling and rewarding participation within their community. This will be done by providing opportunities for the children to work together co-operatively, to develop conflict resolution strategies and to explore human relationships.

We believe that positive self esteem and high self worth assists a child to have a lifelong strong emotional intelligence that gives them the ability to cope with life’s challenges.

Child Care Subsidy

is available to all families

Families of today face many financial struggles and that is why we try to keep our fees as low as possible. Our fees and charges are adjusted each year in line with the cost of living. Our fees are based on a daily rate or session fee (we do not provide half days). We are proud to say that our fees are the most cost effective in our communities. For information on our current fee please contact the centre.

Childcare Care Subsidy (CCS) is available for families whose income meets the eligibility criteria. You can apply for the Child Care Subsidy at any Centrelink office. This should be lodged prior to your child commencing care as the Child Care Subsidy only applies from the date of lodgment. You may apply for fee relief at your local Family Assistance Office (FAO) or call 13 61 50.

Safety & Security

Our commitment is to the children we care for and their safety

We believe that positive self esteem and high self worth assists a child to have a lifelong strong emotional intelligence that gives them the ability to cope with life’s challenges.
