We nurture, love and educate for your child in a way that gives you peace of mind while your child is in our care. The meals we provide are healthy and delicious meals made from fresh quality produce for all age groups.

Our learning environments are enriching spaces that encourage children to play and learn happily with others and to connect with their community.

Orientation visits

We invite all of our families to come in and visit the centre before your child’s start date, this gives our families an opportunity for some one on one time with their child’s educator to ask any questions you may have and to discuss your child’s routine, orientation visits also allows the child to become more familiar with the environment before they start. The orientation and settling process is an important basis for establishing effective partnerships between our families and our team which is vital in promoting positive outcomes for children. We value our continuous, honest, open and two-way communication that we have with our families which begins during the orientation process.

Am I able to claim the government rebates?

Yes, we are a registered childcare provider which means that you can claim child care benefits and child care subsidy from Centrelink if you are eligible.

We provide daily online updates and documentation for our families using Storypark

We understand how important communication is between our team and our families which is why we use Storypark for online documentation, weekly family newsletters, updates and also our daily journal where you gain insight into what your child has been involved in during the day and how much fun they are having.
You can choose to add your own stories or leave comments and feedback for children and our teaching team.
Storypark is a secure, private online space to ensure your child receives the best support possible and that you are involved and up-to-date with your child’s development. Storypark provides each child with an online community which you (their parent/guardian) own and control and you have access for as long as you wish.
