Working alongside families to provide children with a value-based learning experience to help them develop a healthy self.
We encourage positive relationships and independence, to help your children develop their full potential. Whether your child is six weeks or six years old, our goal is to help them find a strong sense of identity and wellbeing to assist them in becoming the leaders of tomorrow. We are proud that our program includes self-initiated play, staff who support and encourage individual goals, individually based play and learning and age-appropriate resources.
We acknowledge Australia’s Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples as the Traditional Custodians of the land on which Illoura Child Care Centre stands today. We pay our respect to their Elders, both past and present, and to our shared future.
We’ve got a wonderful team of educators at Illoura 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
Illoura 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.
