We believe all children should be cared for in a nurturing, safe, and caring environment, which caters for the individual needs of each child and family. We constantly access research into best quality educational and caring practices, and continuously train our staff to implement innovative as well as time proven ideas into the children’s programs.
Kerry and Joan have owned the Centre for since 1997. Joan has high degrees in Early Childhood Education, Education of children with additional needs, Child care, and is a qualified TAFE trainer. Kerry has extensive management experience with several different industries in South Australia, and has degrees in Accounting and Economics.
Our goal is for each child to participate in developmentally appropriate activities, to help them achieve their optimal potential.
Your child’s safety, happiness, self esteem, health and nutrition are our priorities.
All families are welcome in the centre at any time. Family input is valued and incorporated into our Programmed activities, Events and Policies and Procedures
We have an extensive, largely shade protected, private, outdoor play area. To engage every child in quality imaginative outdoor experiences, we have a large nature corridor, with a running creek, bike track, sand and digging areas. Children learn about sustainability and recycling, tend edible gardens and care for the worm farm.
Our buildings and grounds are maintained to the highest standard of safety. All rooms have reverse cycle air-conditioning.
Our caring, dedicated staff are highly
qualified, and we employ more than the
required ratio of Trained Staff to children.
Many of our child carers have worked with us
long term and enjoy the family atmosphere we have created.
We also have an ongoing in-house training program and our staff participate in
ongoing professional development.

encouraging positive development:
