SERPENTINE CHILD CARE
Serpentine Child Care is a privately owned, 37 place, family orientated child care centre. We are conveniently located at 58 Lefroy Street, directly opposite the Serpentine Primary School.
Our Centre provides a high level of care for children aged 6 weeks to 12 years, Monday to Friday from 6.30am-6.00pm.
At Serpentine Child Care we believe that learning is fun and aim to provide a large range of activities that cater to your child. Our educators are professional practitioners and observe closely, listen to children carefully and give value to their ideas and then create strategies to build on their interests.
Early childhood education lays the foundation on which a child’s potential is built, providing a basis for learning for life. It is the clay of which a child’s potential is crafted and by providing a learning environment that is rich with opportunity and support we encourage the development of their identity, connectedness to others, wellbeing and resilience, nurturing competent and capable children.
We see children as capable and competent individuals. As educators we are passionate in providing the materials, the environment and the educational support that will enable each child to both consolidate and develop further skills. We encourage confidence in children to learn and express their thoughts and ideas through various cues like body language, art, drama, music, and dance.
Areas have been created to promote children’s research and autonomous discovery and cater to both individual exercises and interactions within small groups. Our areas also offer opportunity for privacy and quiet experiences ensuring that children receive ample rest and relaxation.
We nurture a sense of respect for the environment and teach children to live, learn and behave in a sustainable, calm and loving manner.
We offer orientation visits so that the transition to Child Care is one that is smooth and ensures that a trusting relationship is formed very early for children and families.
We have a cook at the centre who cooks our meals from scratch maintaining a healthy varierty of meals while being aware of our cultural and dietry requirements. Jo is always seeking parent input for her menus and using these recipies through the menu cycle.
