Our programs

At our Council-managed services we offer a rich and stimulating play-based educational program that is designed around children's interests and developmental needs.

Children’s wellbeing is at the centre of all we do. Our educators support children to develop social and emotional skills through playing, learning, and exploring with their peers.

The indoor and outdoor spaces provide a wide range of resources and opportunities that allow children of all abilities to be included in the program. 

We respect and value the diversity of our community and strive to reflect the cultures and values of families in our services.


Children are provided with morning tea, lunch and afternoon tea. All dietary requirements and food intolerances are carefully catered for.

Menus have been assessed by the Healthy Eating Advisory Service to ensure they meet Australian Guidelines and are displayed weekly at the centre. Families are invited to provide feedback on our menus.

These health initiatives are part of our centre's Achievement Program to achieve various health and wellbeing priorities.
