Bowral Street Childcare is a long day care centre that offers a homely environment, loving care and an educational program to children aged 18 months to 6 years. Set on a large rural block in Bowral, we have a huge grassed yard with park style play equipment and a large sandpit. Inside we have 2 large rooms, both full of natural light. We are a well equipped centre with a wide variety of resources for learning and play, and our day to day program includes gardening, yoga, cooking, and lots of guest visitors and special activities. We have a wonderful team of caring and experienced staff, many of whom have been with us for many years, and many of whom are parents themselves.
Our Vision: We have a strong and longstanding reputation for being the best childcare centre in the Southern Highlands.
Our Mission: Bowral Street Childcare is a thriving centre with happy children, happy parents and happy staff.
Our team consistently strives to deliver this mission. The idea behind each ‘happy’ is as follows:
Children feel important and well cared for because staff meet their needs and engage with each individual at their level. They enjoy their days in childcare because they are having fun with friends and learning through play. Their experiences are developed from their individual interests and around the concepts ‘Being, Belonging and Becoming’. As such, children are supported to develop a strong sense of identity, to connect to and contribute to their world, to develop a strong sense of well being, to be confident and involved learners and to be effective communicators.
Parents are confident that their child is being well looked after and enjoying their day at Bowral Street Childcare. Parents feel informed about their child/ren’s days and feel a part of our community. Our communication is strong and we work as a team for the best interests of each child.
Staff work as part of a strong and communicative team which effectively meets the needs of each individual child and the regulations set by Government. All staff are passionate about the wellbeing and development of children and understand the importance of their role. Bowral Street Childcare has a range of systems in place to help staff work together effectively and efficiently, and staff use their instincts and initiative constantly to ensure the smooth operation of the centre and the best experience possible for all.
Our Values: We interact with staff and children in ways that are respectful, supportive, honest, encouraging, positive and fun so that Bowral Street Childcare is a place that everyone wants to come to and feels like a second family.
