A Little About Us
The Kath Foley Children’s Centre Kindergarten Inc commenced operation in 1985. We offer long day care for children ages 0-6 years, 3’s kinder and a funded 4 year old kindergarten. We are proudly community based, not for profit and operating at a level exceeding the National Quality Standards. An incorporated parent-based Committee of Management undertakes the management of the Centre.
We provide education and care for the following age groups:
0 - 2
We aim to provide a welcoming, nurturing environment for all children and their families. Supporting children’s agency and growing independence is important to us, so our routines are arranged as valuable learning opportunities where children are active participants and decision makers.
2 - 3
In the 2-3 room we use play as a vehicle for learning. During the day children engage in play areas that are planned to support different aspects of learning and that reflect the interests of the children.
Our 3’s kinder is integrated into long day care at no additional cost. Families can access childcare subsidy and long day care hours. A 2 hour 3’s session is run by an early childhood teacher each day between 9am and 11am.
During their kindergarten year children form a strong sense of their own identity and establish and build on relationships with others. We believe that if children are to reach their full potential, that their kindergarten environment must be inclusive and free from bias, where they are happy, have fun and feel valued for their individuality.
