We have designed the day to let your child experience spontaneous play, structured learning, indoor and outdoor experiences and of course, nutritious food and necessary rest.
This is an overview of the way a typical day works.
6.30: Families are encouraged to place their children belongs in their allocated rooms and join children in the senior playground. The environment is set to cover all age group developmental stages. It allows siblings to play together as they settle into the centre.
7.30- 8:00: The younger children move to the toddler’s playground to begin their daily routine.
9:30: Our children have their morning tea of fruit and a variety of healthy snacks. The children are with their room educators for morning tea.
Morning offers a flexible routine throughout the centre according to room. Each room has activities suited to that age group.
Lunch commences around 10.45 for the younger children through to 12 for the older ones.
Rest period between 12 and 2 which varies according to each child’s needs.
Afternoon tea commences with fruit and different snacks according to the day’s menu.
The rest of the day is free play until afternoon pick up.
This timetable is a beautiful balance of everything your child needs.
Our program may include special days and special events. On those days our timetable might vary slightly.
We may have special guests such as a petting zoo or special activities with guest teachers. We like to introduce our children to local people like police officers so they can learn about what they do.
There is something to appeal to every child and help them discover the joy of learning.
Our programs are flexible and reflect the developmental levels and interests of each child within the group.

These include a tranquil environment that is surrounded by trees and lush parks. Einbunpin Lagoon is only a short walk away and our children visit regularly to learn about the birds and wildlife.
We also visit the local parks; we believe children can expand their inquisitive minds when we use community resources available.
We provide yoga classes and Ginger Sport programs for children who are interested.
The kindergarten has also collaborated with the local aged care facility where the children visit the elderly.
