Health and Nutrition

Our varied menu assists helping us teach the children about health and nutrition. It rotates on a monthly basis to provide the children with a range of nutritious and delicious options, such as spaghetti bolognaise, sandwiches, frittatas and pasta. The food is prepared by our trained centre chef and educators, and our centre manager views the menus and do the shopping to ensure that every dish is made from high-quality, nutritious ingredients.

We are also happy to work to dietary requirements due to allergies, intolerances and cultural reasons. All you have to do is let us know and we’ll take care of the rest.

Activities

At Village Kids Gulliver, the children learn about a range of topics on a daily basis including art, science, nature, nutrition, culture and society.

Our extracurricular program includes a range of age-appropriate events and activities that allow the children to explore, learn and grow with the support of our experienced educators.

Centre activities:

  • Yoga
  • Charity events and fundraisers

Annual special events:

  • Chinese New Year
  • ANZAC Day
  • NAIDOC Week

As part of our commitment to diversity, we use interpreters where necessary, and have a range of our materials written in different languages to aid communication and ensure that everyone is included fairly. We also acknowledge the Bindal people and the Wulgurukaba people as the traditional owners of the land in which we work and play.

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.
