Coffee and care are what’s on offer at the new Bundaberg North Grow Early Education Childcare centre when it opens its doors in October.
The 80-place centre located on Barber Street is already welcoming registrations and will provide education and care for children aged from six-weeks to six-years of age.
Also cared for are the parents with the centre’s own barista and chef ensuring coffee and meals are available.
Grow Early Education Childcare Operations Manager Nadine Ross said the state-of-the-art early education centre was committed to providing genuine high-quality childcare and education within the Bundaberg Region.
“We are passionate about giving children the best possible start in life, and we are so pleased to offer an exceptional standard of childcare to the Bundaberg community.
“We believe that children learn best in a quality environment that is happy, nurturing, engaging, and safe. This has guided the design of our centre,” Ms Ross said.
A contemporary design features the use of sustainable and natural materials and the centre includes a chicken coop, vegetable and herb garden, recycled timber teepee and adventure fort.
Age-appropriate classrooms are equipped with carefully selected educational resources, and Ms Ross said the centre uses interactive whiteboard technology in classrooms to enhance children’s learning experiences.
“Our centre design complements our play-based curriculum,” Ms Ross said.
“Through our curriculum, we aim to inspire children and equip them with the skills needed to be successful life-long learners.”
“We prioritise ensuring every child experiences success and accomplishment, and we tailor our curriculum to each child’s stage of learning.”
Sustainability and gardening programs are built into the Grow Early Education Childcare curriculum, with importance placed on teaching children to love and protect the world we live in.
Comprehensive Kindergarten and Transition to School Programs are also designed to ensure each child is prepared with the skills needed to transition to a formal schooling environment, with every kindergarten child receiving a free hat, drink bottle, backpack, and polo upon enrolment.
Ms Ross said that Grow Early Education Bundaberg aimed to provide families with a level of benefits and inclusions that would give them the most value from their childcare fees.
“Community is so important to us, and we design our childcare centres to provide a community hub for our families,” she said.
“We encourage parent feedback and input into our educational programs, and we love inviting our parents to participate in our special centre events and days,” she said.
“We are very excited to be part of the Bundaberg community.
“We look forward to meeting all of our families, showing you the centre first-hand, and introducing you to our friendly staff.”
