One of our happy parents:

 

"Amazing, friendly and caring daycare. All the teachers put your

child's needs first and keep the communication open. The team

were so loving and welcoming to my three boys when we first

enrolled. The centre is equipped with stunning and engaging

facilities for your child to grow and learn."

 

 

Our Philosophy

We believe at Bush Babies Nurseries that the early years of a child’s life are the most important – as studies have shown, children’s emotional, social and physical development has a direct effect on their overall development as a person. So at Bush Babies Nurseries, we are dedicated to providing children with the best early childhood education and care. Our goal is to provide a care environment that is the next best thing to home.

BELONGING, BEING, BECOMING

Play-based, child-led learning, extended by intentional teaching as outlined in The Early Years Learning Framework.

 

BEAUTIFUL INDOOR & OUTDOOR AREAS TO EXPLORE

Our beautiful resources and learning environments instigate children’s innate curiosity, and we allow this natural exploration process to guide our program.

EXTRACURRICULAR ACTIVITIES

Our centres offer extracurricular activities as unique learning experiences for children to enhance their education journey. Sports, cooking classes, Māori music classes and more.

 

KINDERGARTEN PROGRAM

Our centres operate an approved Queensland Kindergarten program, designed to support and enrich children’s learning as they prepare to transition to school.

DELICIOUS & NUTRITIOUS MEALS

Morning Tea, Lunch and Afternoon Tea are provided daily, using high-quality, fresh ingredients to please even the pickiest of eaters.

TE ORANGA REO

Our Māori Kindergarten Program for children aged 3 to 5 years helps families immerse their little ones in Māori culture and promotes awareness and understanding so that each child can feel a strong connection to their cultural heritage and develop a strong sense of identity.

 
 

OUR EDUCATORS

The most important part of an early learning centre is the team of educators and teachers. These are the people who will be accompanying your child through their early years as they explore, discover, learn and grow – which is why Bush Babies Nurseries have a very stringent process for recruiting Educators.

As a minimum, every Educator must be studying towards their Diploma in Children’s Services – with at least 50% of all educators on site being fully qualified. Each operational Kindergarten Program has a qualified Early Childhood Teacher with either a Bachelor Degree in Early Childhood, or a Diploma in Children’s Services and studying towards a Bachelor Degree in Early Childhood.

 

OUR COMMUNITY

Here at Bush Babies Nurseries we believe education starts with family, and that a strong link between home and care is key to children’s healthy development and wellbeing. So we provide families and educators many opportunities and platforms to maintain regular communication and to develop a sturdy relationship.

When children see their parents and educators have a strong bond, they will feel more comfortable at our care, which will make them more confident and engaged learners.

We provide parents with a Parent Communication Book, a Parent Communication Board, and daily Story Park updates (online app). We also encourage parental involvement, and families are welcome to pop into the centre at any time.

Bush Babies Nurseries host regular events for families, and even some events organised by parents, to develop and strengthen bonds between children’s homes and our centre.

A SAFE ENVIRONMENT FOR EVERYONE

When children feel safe, nurtured and secure, they feel a strong sense of wellbeing, which gives them confidence to communicate effectively and be actively involved in their learning journey.

Each child is different, and Bush Babies Nurseries take individual needs into consideration to support them to learn and grow at their own pace.

THE ENVIRONMENT

Bush Babies Nurseries help children feel connected to the environment they live and learn in.

We teach them about the impact they have on the world, and how they can choose to make it a better place.

CULTURAL DIVERSITY

As cultural diversity is at the core of our ethos, we promote cultural awareness and understanding so that each child can feel a strong connection to their cultural heritage and develop their own cultural identity.

Bush Babies Nurseries teach children to respect, accept and celebrate cultural differences, giving them a strong sense of belonging, leading them to embrace diversity and become confident and involved learners.
