Hello and welcome to Back to Basics Early Learning Centre. We are a boutique service providing the highest standards of care, education and development for our children within a long day care setting. We cater for the littlest of enrolees in the Nursery, through to the 4 Year Old Kindergarten group, who develop their school readiness skills under the supportive wing of our Early Childhood Teacher.
With a commitment to “raising the bar” in early education, the team at Back to Basics Early Learning Centre work tirelessly to deliver exceptional quality care and education for every child, every day. Our educational philosophies are under-pinned by the widely respected Reggio Emilia approach to learning, which supports enquiry and play-based learning experiences in natural and responsive environments. Our learning programs are designed to be emergent in nature and, through reflective practices, are guided by the children’s interests and needs.
At Back to Basics Early Learning Centre we believe our team of Early Childhood educators are one of our most valuable assets and we could not achieve our goals, or honour our philosophies, without their knowledge, support and hard work. Our team understand the responsibility that comes with the role of an educator and are committed to ensuring that every child not only enjoys their time with us, but is exposed to every available developmental and learning opportunity.
Our team of educators bring an impressive range of skills, qualifications and experience, ensuring every child is supported in their learning and personal needs. Our educators participate in regular professional development, mentoring and first aid training in order to remain at the top of their profession. As a ‘feeder’ to many of the local primary schools our Early Childhood Teacher attends regular kinder networking meetings to ensure the kinder children receive a seamless transition to school.
At Back to Basics Early Learning Centre we offer a fully funded and approved kindergarten program. We understand that your child’s kindergarten year is an important one and the skills and knowledge they develop throughout this time will support them through their schooling years and beyond. When your child attends kindergarten at Back to Basics Early Learning Centre they receive uninterrupted and extended learning which facilitates maximum growth and development.
Our centre has been designed to create a positive and rewarding environment for children to learn, develop, play and form social bonds. Our internal environment offers naturally lit, expansive play spaces with direct access to the outdoors. Each children’s room incorporates all the facilities children and educators need to ensure optimal learning and development opportunities and outcomes.
Our natural outdoor environment includes vegetable gardens, digging patches, sandpits and with the outdoor play areas being divided across children’s age and development, we have ensured harmonious enjoyment for all children in a safe and secure environment.
Outdoor undercover areas provide the flexibility for children and educators to further enjoy the outdoors during inclement weather and we comply with the Sun Smart policy and guidelines.
Our doors are open from 6.30am to 6.30pm, Monday to Friday (closed public holidays) and fees include all meals, nappies and educational programs.
