The early years are a critical time in a child’s development. At Catholic Early EdCare long day care centres, we will work with your family to nurture your child’s development from as early as six weeks through to kindergarten age. Children are shaped by their many experiences, relationships and the skills they develop in the early years. In our long day care centres we focus on helping children develop their communication and language skills while supporting their emotional and social development.
Our educators are all tafe or university trained and will support your child to develop foundational skills, through play, in line with the Early Years Learning Framework. This framework focuses on helping children develop a sense of belonging, make the most of their childhood and preparing them to become a full and active member of society. Relationships are central to creating a feeling of belonging. Our educators will develop a strong relationship with your child and help them build relationships with others. At Catholic Early EdCare we also believe play is the most important work of a child and respect their right to experience the joy of childhood. Our educators will provide new opportunities for your child to create and explore everyday. Through our school and parish partnerships and connections with our local communities your child will grow in confidence as they become involved in their community from a young age.
