Doncaster East Day Care & Kindergarten
Childcare Services - Doncaster East, VIC
Educational child care offered to mums and dads who need quality care and kindergarten for their children whilst they are at work.
At Doncaster East Daycare and Kindergarten, we have built a team who have a terrific work ethic, years of experience in the childcare field and high levels of training.
Our educational programs are based on the Early Years Learning Framework, which was endorsed by the Council of Australian Governments (COAG) on the 2nd July 2009.
Our priority is providing the children in our care with a nurturing and caring environment, where they feel included and comfortable. We believe this type of environment enables children to maximise their learning experiences.
The proprietor, Katrine Kelly holds a Bachelor of Education and was a secondary school teacher for many years prior to entering the childcare field. She has also completed an Advanced Diploma in Community Services (Children’s Services).
We employ a tertiary qualified Kindergarten Teacher to prepare and deliver the Kindergarten Program to the children in our Kinder Room.
Our Kinder Room Assistant is qualified with a Diploma in Children's Services.
The ratio of staff to children in the Kinder Room is 1/10. We believe the combination of highly qualified staff and generous child/staff ratios provides a rich learning environment for the children attending our centre and ensures the children are well prepared to commence school.
Our Toddler's Room and Babies Room are run by very experienced, qualified childcare staff. Both room leaders hold a Diploma in Children’s Services. These two rooms are smaller than our Kinder Room and have a capacity of only ten children, allowing us to provide more personalised care.
Our assistants in the under three area, each hold a Certficate 111 in Children's Services.
We have ladies on our team who are multilingual and can speak English, Mandarin, Cantonese and Vietnamese - a great advantage for parents or grandparents who are more comfortable using these languages when conversing with staff.
