Our Philosophy
As parents choosing appropriate child care is one of the most important decisions you’ll make regarding your child’s early education.  We appreciate as individuals we’re all looking for child care that suits our own lifestyle, ethics and personal taste to provide our children with a home away from home as well as opportunities to learn and thrive.

 

Our three centres each have their own unique personality offering families a choice of care for their precious children.

 

While each centre has its own look and feel they all share common philosophy and ethics towards early education and child care.

 

We believe that children learn in an environment that is rich in exploration, with staff guidance that is supportive and encourages risk taking, reflection, problem-solving and individuality.

 

Through a mix of structured and play-based learning experiences children build their social, emotional and thinking skills in a safe, supportive and nurturing environment.  And we’re dedicated to the achievement of developmental milestones in cognitive, physical, social and emotional growth of children 6 weeks to Prep.

 

We have a strong commitment to providing a nature-based environment that stimulates the senses, invites exploration and discovery and challenges children as active learners.

 

As dedicated Early Childhood Professions, we believe that children are unique individuals who learn and develop skills through the process of exploration within an educational; play based Early Years learning Framework. With this in mind, our conscientious team of Educators maintain a developmentally-appropriate program implemented within the Early Years leaning Framework, National Quality Standards and Childcare Act & Regulations 2010.

 

We endeavour to be a centres of excellence within our community providing children with as many opportunities to engage in our local surroundings, community organisations and local schools. We encourage involvement from the local community into our centre through our community gardens and other neighbourhood events.

 

Our programs are delivered by qualified teachers; skilled and experienced educators who give each child individual care and guidance so they may reach their full potential as an independent little person.

 

At the GC Child Care Centres children are encouraged to explore, discover, experience, experiment, and most of all…have fun.
