As a parent, placing your children in child care is a big decision
You need to know they will be cared for in the very best possible way.
We understand that. We know that whilst we can never replace that role of a parent …… we recognise the importance of building partnerships with families, children’s first and most influential educators.
We provide an environment where your children:
- Feel safe and secure;
- Can build self esteem and independence;
- Can develop their social skills through interaction with other children.
How do the children benefit from childcare?
The period from 0 to 5 years is regarded as the formative years in terms of children’s development and education. For that reason her have developed a program which is centred on a platform of sound educational values.
Typically, this is done through the use of “play” as this has been proven to be the most effective way to enhance your child’s growth and development.
Here at Benowa Childrens Centre’s we incorporate the National Early Years Framework which conveys the highest expectations for all children’s learning from birth to five years and through the transitions to school. It communicates these expectations through the following five Learning outcomes
- Children have a strong sense of identity
- Children are connected with and contribute to their world
- Children have a strong sense of wellbeing
- Children are confident and involved learners
- Children are effective communicators.
Experience has taught us that variety and fun are the best ways to foster all the
educational and developmental needs of your child.
How will my child spend their day?
If you look around our centre, you’ll see that it’s been built just for children. It’s bright and colourful and well equipped with lots of toys and games. From your child’s perspective it looks like fun…..and it is!
However, we like to think of it as “fun with a purpose”.
For example, painting is much more than just making pretty pictures. It helps children with their creative and motor skill development. So because of that, we offer a variety of painting activities.
As professional educators of children, we know that “block play” enhances children’s ability to comprehend mathematical concepts. However, the truth is ….children see it as “fun”, which is the way it should be.
As a parent wanting high quality care for your child, you’ll be pleased to know that every activity has an educational and developmental value. This means each and every day they are developing and learning at their own pace, with constant support from qualified and caring educators.
