About Us

 

We care about the wellbeing of our children and of their families. Our carers like to create a warm and welcoming environment where we can be involved in all stages of the child’s development. In childcare trust is everything, and we work hard to earn it.

Since opening in 1996, we have formed long lasting relationship’s between our parents and children, through curriculum events and child activities. It is very important when communicating with families, we are truthful, respectful and responsive. Working as co-educator, the role of the teacher is first and foremost to be that of a learner alongside the children and to ensure that they receive all the support they require during their younger years.

and Educators

 

Great childcare comes from great educators and because all children’s learning requirements are unique, we provide an early learning curriculum that is shaped around each individual child in our state of the art learning environment. Timeout’s Educare Program is taught throughout our classes by highly experienced teachers who are passionate about learning and working with children. We pride ourselves on continuous improvement and personal development ensuring our educators participate in ongoing training to further enhance their skills.

We encourage respect and promote acceptance between all families and cultural backgrounds. The influence of culture, family and early childhood educators is of extreme importance. Our program is supplemented by extracurricular activities provided by our specialist educators which include learning to understand speaking Mandarin, Greek and even Sign Language.

We are committed to our children and ensure every child graduates from our early learning program confident and prepared for their next educational level.
