What We Offer

 

1. SIP

A SIP is a self-guided inclusion assessment and planning tool for early childhood and child care services.

You can be reassured that with us ALL children are included, and differences are not ignored but respected BECAUSE that is the way we build feelings of trust,

safety, and wellbeing.

Our centres have successfully developed SIPs to ensure ALL children experience a sense of belonging. Our SIPs include short- and long-term strategies for

improving and embedding inclusive practice for the inclusion of ALL children with additional needs alongside their typically developing peers. You can access our

SIPs by contacting our service or simply visit us and we will provide you a copy of our current SIP.

2. RAP 

Our services are proud to have developed a Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP) to strengthen relationships, respect, and opportunities in the classroom, around the

school and with the community. We have developed 14 Actions for reconciliation to show commitment in maintaining institutional integrity. We are committed to

teach and learn about Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander ways of knowing and being to support the Framework’s five learning outcomes and ensure a maximum

standard of quality is achieved across all our services.

3. Our Inclusive Policies

Our Inclusive policies ensure that our centres are a safe place where ALL children and families can participate. All staff in our early learning service are aware of

policies that refer specifically to improving educational outcomes for ALL children.

Some of our inclusive policies are:

ANTI-BIAS & INCLUSION POLICY

MULTI-CULTURAL POLICY

BULLYING, DISCRIMINATION AND HARRASSMENT POLICY

Family Law and Access Policy

Please contact our service for more information.

4. Physical Environment 

All our services are accessible for children with physical and other sensory motor disability. We work closely with our local IP (Inclusion Professionals) and when

necessary, we borrow specialist equipment from the Specialist Equipment Library SEL to support the inclusion and participation of all children at our services.

 
 
 
 

Menu - Our Menus are developed in consultation with a Nutritionist and according to the Australian Dietary Guidelines and the Australian Guide to Healthy Eating.

Long Day Care - We believe in providing a positive eating environment that reflects dietary requirements, cultural and family values, and promotes lifelong learning

for children, as we commit to implementing and embedding the healthy eating key messages outlined in the NSW Health’s Munch & Move program into our

curriculum and to support the National Healthy Eating Guidelines for Early Childhood Settings outlined in the Get Up & Grow resources. We partnered with Kids

Gourmet Foods to deliver fresh, nutritious and creative meals to your children. We provide breakfast, morning tea, lunch, afternoon tea and late night snacks.

We encourage and support breastfeeding and appropriate introduction of solid foods.

Hygienic Practices - All kitchens and food preparation areas comply with Food Standards Australia and New Zealand (FSANZ) and any relevant local jurisdictional

requirements. All staff involved in the stages of food handling have the skills and knowledge to ensure food safety is a priority.

of healthy and nutritious foods for meals and snacks including fruit and vegetables, wholegrain cereal products, dairy products, and high protein alternatives.

force children to eat nor we feed them, unless children need additional attention. We simple provide time for lunch breaks and kindly remind them to eat their

lunch.

 
 
 

Educational Program – We aim to enhance children’s learning and development through the pedagogical practices of educators in a positive learning environment

through which the five learning outcomes from the Early Years Learning Framework (EYLF) and My Time Our Place (MTOP) are supported and promoted. Our

developed Reconciliation Action Plans (RAP) and Strategic Inclusion Plans (SIP) programs provide a framework for our services to be inclusive in their work and

contribute to national reconciliation.

Long Day Care - Our curriculum is constructed based on the children’s interests, educators extending children’s interests, spontaneous experiences, and family

contribution.

Alongside the desire to deliver the best possible outcome to every child, we have linked with the Little Scientists Australia professional development program to

become accredited Little Scientist House. The program is developed to provide children with opportunity to explore STEM with confidence and joy, as well as the

opportunity to explore the world in a nurturing and playful setting that boosts their natural eagerness to learn.

To nurture children’s physical and intellectual development we have engaged the Hey Dee Ho music program to come to our service on a weekly basis and engage

children in music and movement activities. Different educational themes are presented each week using props, puppets, costumes, and percussion instruments to

deliver a multi-sensory experience.

 

We organise regular outings to our local before and after school care services, local parks, shops, and libraries to invite children interact with the world around

them. Being out and about in their community helps children to learn about their immediate environment. They are also able to practice life skills such as road

safety.

Developing life skills and a sense of enjoyment are emphasised in our program. Our curriculum is constructed based on the children’s interests, educators extending

children’s interests, spontaneous experiences, and family contribution. We acknowledge the importance of play and leisure in children’s learning and development
