Our Educators can transport children to and from other educational activities using your car if your insurance covers the Educators use of your vehicle.
Children who access our service do not need to be immunised if they are not accessing the Child Care Subsidy. This means non-immunised children can access early learning and care in their own home, or join with another family of children who are not immunised as part of a Family Co-op. All of our Educators are regularly immunised.
Our curriculum is tailored to the needs of each child. This means that our Educators spend time each week preparing a program according to each child’s stage of learning and development so that no child within the program misses out on having their needs met. See our section on Varying Ages for more information.
