Providing a nurturing environment for children aged from six weeks to six years, to assist them in their social, physical and intellectual development.
We offer a nurturing, learning and activity-based program for children aged six weeks to six years. We work to ensure that your child’s social, physical and intellectual development occurs within balanced, individually based programs designed to promote natural learning.
Our service is set on a spacious, leafy block, offering children a beautiful and natural outdoor play environment.
We respectfully acknowledge the Jagera, Yuggera and Ugarapul peoples of Ipswich and Springfield, the Traditional Owners and Custodians of the Country on which Forest Lake Child Care Centre resides. We pay our respects to Elders past, present and emerging and acknowledge the continuing connection to land, sea and community.
We’ve got a wonderful team of educators at Forest Lake Child Care Centre. Our long-serving, qualified educators are all involved in professional development plans, with some educators undertaking further studies. We’re proud of the diverse range of cultures amongst our team.
Our Learning Program
We view children as competent and capable learners who can confidently take part and provide input in planning and implementing their own learning experiences. Children will get to explore and play using resources that will stimulate their senses of curiosity and discovery. We’re guided by the Early Years Learning Framework, the National Quality Standards and the Queensland Kindergarten Learning Guideline to inform our practice. We have high expectation of our children and provide a challenging program that’ll see them develop life-long skills they can develop. We also place a strong focus on emotional and social resilience.
Approved Kindergarten Program
Forest Lake Child Care Centre provides parents with a kindergarten program operating five days a week. It’s implemented by a university qualifed teacher and supported by a team of experienced and qualified educators. All our Educators develop warm, sensitive, responsive relationships with children to help promote the children’s development, learning and wellbeing. We encourage a variety of experiences and moments to teach throughout the day. We strongly believe that the kindergarten year is a time where the foundation of learning for children can be set to foster positive learning for life.
