Salamander Child Care Centre Inc.

Salamander Child Care Centre provides care and early education to children aged between 0-5 years. Salamander Child Care Centre incorporates the Early Years Framework, the national curriculum for children under 7, into their planning and program.

At Salamander Child Care Centre we work with children to develop their awareness and curiosity of the world they live in through interest based projects that incorporate the many languages of learning. Children are encouraged to develop a greater sense of self and are supported to achieve the independence they strive for. To achieve this we encourage children to cooperate, we enhance their self esteem, develop their problem solving skills and encourage their ability to interact with others. Our staff use positive guidance when guiding children’s behavior and encourage children to take responsibility for their actions.

The many experiences offered to the children allows friendships to develop and  opportunity to learn how to manage their own feelings and to be a cooperative learner and member of a community in a supportive environment.

The Centre is run on a "not for profit" basis because “children are too precious for profit”. We are run by a Management Committee which is comprised of volunteers from families enrolled in the service.

The Centre enhances the wonderful surrounds our children are fortunate enough to live in. Our outdoor play and learning area creates a great atmosphere for the children to discover the environment. They can feed the chickens and  our rabbit or they might like to plant seeds in the vegetable garden.

The Centre operates from Monday to Friday between the hours of 7.30am and 6.00pm exclusive of Public Holidays for 50 weeks of the year. Legally no children can be accepted into the Centre before or after these times.  The Centre closes for two weeks and 2 staff development/cleaning days during the Christmas/New Year period. Adequate notice is given on the dates for Centre closure.
