Long Day Care Program:

Long Day Care (Child Care) offers parents and caregivers an opportunity to take a break, go to work or study, for example. Children receive educational and developmental opportunities within a safe and caring environment with nutritious home cooked food and healthy snacks. Children can explore and play, make friends and build social skills.

Preschool Program:

Preschool offers families/children a cost effective and engaging program of activities and guided experiences to help children gain confidence and build their readiness for school. The Preschool Program is offered Monday to Thursday in morning and afternoon sessions.

The Occupational Therapist (OT) and Speech Pathologist (SP)

work with families and Children’s Centre staff to support children’s development in areas such as movement and hand skills, talking and understanding, behaviour and eating. The therapists are active in playgroups and by talking with families who come to the Centre. The OT and SP program also supports parents in identifying children with delays in development, providing referral pathways to the NDIS, for example, and tailoring strategies and activity ideas to support children and families in the home.

The Family Services Coordinator (FSC)

connects with local families with children aged 0-5 years. The FSC provides group and individual focus and support for families around issues that affect parents, caregivers and their children, including the provision of information and links to other services.
