Our menu rotates on a monthly basis and includes delicious options such as a variety of sandwiches and wraps, fried rice, corned beef and vegetables, tuna bake, pasta bake, chicken nuggets (with real chicken), and casseroles. All of our meals meet the Australian Nutritional Guidelines and our onsite chef is happy to work to dietary requirements whether they be based on allergies and intolerance or for cultural reasons.
We have an amazing backyard and a huge play space and multiple zones dedicated to specific age groups, including a nursery and kindergarten. We promote creativity at every turn and some of the activities we take part in include work with construction materials, blocks, art media, paints, collage materials and natural items.
We also teach the children about diversity and culture whilst they are in our care. We learn languages and sign language, sing cultural songs, eat a variety of multicultural dishes and invite families and community members to share their culture with us.

Children with Additional Needs
We welcome all children with a wide variety of abilities, backgrounds or needs. If your child requires extra medical, emotional or learning support, we will tailor our care for them and work closely with you to ensure they have a smooth transition into our centre. This includes seeking support from other networks or professionals to bridge any gaps in our service delivery.
Some of the additional needs and support which can be provided at our centre include but are not limited to:
- English as a second language
- Autism spectrum
- Physical disabilities
- Minor or serious medical conditions
- Emotional issues
Our team cultivates a warm atmosphere of inclusion through continuous improvement and open communication. We are confident that your child will benefit from our dedicated approach to care and education.
Please speak to our staff about your child’s individual needs and how we can accommodate them.
Together we can create a plan to help them reach their full potential.
Child Safety & Welfare
All aspects of our operations are in line with the National Quality Standards and the Early Years Learning Framework. This includes our Health and Safety policy. All educators follow our health and safety policies and procedures and have access to these online.
We understand that leaving your child in someone else’s care is a difficult thing to do. We assure you that safety is our top priority and our educators follow safety practices every day.
At all times, we ensure that our centre is secure and free of hazards, both inside and out. Fire drills and UV checks are a regular part of our informed approach to safety. We emphasise safety education by creating an atmosphere of safety awareness in all aspects of the day. You will see visual safety guides around our centre, such as our sun smart posters. These tools support our lessons about safety, which we discuss as part of the curriculum. We take every opportunity to act as role models, pointing out tripping or slipping hazards and putting hats and sunscreen on for outdoor play. We talk about stranger danger so that children can build awareness and can freely talk to us if they are scared or worried. We aim to teach children to think about their own safety habitually too.
