To care for and educate your child requires a genuine partnership and mutual respect. We look forward to developing this together.
We have university trained teachers (Bachelor of Teaching), staff who have attained a Diploma of Children's Services and all other staff have a minimum Certificate 111 or are currently undertaking study.
All our staff participate in or attend in-service courses and professional development courses. We continue to aim to develop all our staff and are committed to their ongoing education in all areas of knowledge in all aspects of early childhood education and care and school age care.
The centre prides itself on its retention of staff, this assists us to get to know you, to share relevant information about your child in order to best meet their health, wellbeing, safety and provide high quality learning experiences.
The majority of the staff have been here for over 5 years. Retention of staff is one of our major aims at the centre. We recognise the importance of building long term relationships with our families.

When we talk about community, we are not referring to any aggregate of people, but the quality of communication among them. M.Scott Peck
