Health and Nutrition

At Aussie Kindies Sunbury, we believe that we can help your child grow healthy habits that could last their entire lifetime. With that in mind, we have developed our ‘Eat Right – Start Right’ program. As part of the program, we have a four-week rotating menu created and prepared by our in-house chef, and we send our literature home so that families can reinforce these learnings. Some of our menu items include Moroccan chicken and cous-cous, vegetarian pizza, fruit platters, sausages rolls and salad.

In the creation of this menu, we follow the national guidelines so you can be assured your child is well nourished. Children with dietary requirements are also taken care of and we will ensure that your child’s needs are safely met with each meal.

Activities

The children use home corner, dramatic play, the book corner, the construction corner and arts and crafts to express themselves in a way that is meaningful for them.

Many of the people in our centre come from different backgrounds, allowing us to draw on this knowledge in a really hands-on way. Children take part in a number of activities, such as story sharing, music and cooking, visits from guest speakers, dress ups and exploration of different traditions and customs.

At the centre we celebrate a number of occasions including:

  • Chinese New Year
  • Australia Day
  • Diwali Festival
  • Mothers and Fathers Day
  • Easter
  • St Patricks Day

Sustainability Practices

Our centre is very sustainable. We encourage recycling, have a vegetable patch and our very own chickens. We have even been recognised for our sustainable practices by winning an award from our local Bunnings store, and have been gifted a water tank and numerous fruit trees from members of the community.

Children with Additional Needs

We welcome all children with a wide variety of abilities, backgrounds or needs. If your child requires extra medical, emotional or learning support, we will tailor our care for them and work closely with you to ensure they have a smooth transition into our centre. This includes seeking support from other networks or professionals to bridge any gaps in our service delivery.

Some of the additional needs and support which can be provided at our centre include but are not limited to:

  • English as a second language
  • Autism spectrum
  • Dyslexia
  • Physical disabilities
  • Minor or serious medical conditions
  • Emotional issues

Our team cultivates a warm atmosphere of inclusion through continuous improvement and open communication. We are confident that your child will benefit from our dedicated approach to care and education.

Please speak to our staff about your child’s individual needs and how we can accommodate them.

Together we can create a plan to help them reach their full potential.

Child Safety & Welfare

All aspects of our operations are in line with the National Quality Standards and the Early Years Learning Framework. This includes our Health and Safety policy. All educators follow our health and safety policies and procedures and have access to these online.

We understand that leaving your child in someone else’s care is a difficult thing to do. We assure you that safety is our top priority and our educators follow safety practices every day.

At all times, we ensure that our centre is secure and free of hazards, both inside and out. Fire drills and UV checks are a regular part of our informed approach to safety. We emphasise safety education by creating an atmosphere of safety awareness in all aspects of the day. You will see visual safety guides around our centre, such as our sun smart posters. These tools support our lessons about safety, which we discuss as part of the curriculum. We take every opportunity to act as role models, pointing out tripping or slipping hazards and putting hats and sunscreen on for outdoor play. We talk about stranger danger so that children can build awareness and can freely talk to us if they are scared or worried. We aim to teach children to think about their own safety habitually too.
