Health & Wellbeing

We offer a unique approach to your child’s development, as we encompass not just the education, but the physical health and emotional wellbeing of every child in our care.

More Than Childcare - Health & Wellbeing Focused

Our unique approach to health & wellbeing focuses on physical activity, nutrition, safe sleep & allied health services. It is designed and delivered by our dedicated in-house team of Dietitians, Occupational Therapists, Speech Pathologists and Vision Specialists. We support families through individual consultations and information workshops. These services are all-inclusive within your daily fee.

Let's get physical

Physical confidence and being active is important to every child’s self-esteem and wellbeing. Our specialist Exercise Science and Human Movement program managers help children learn important gross motor skills, and a love of physical activity. Children improve their hand eye coordination, balance, flexibility, fitness, motor planning and body awareness through a range of activities.

Occupational Therapy

Children’s occupational therapy aims to promote a child’s participation and independence through every day, age appropriate activities. Our Occupational Therapists can provide strategies for your child’s learning, socialising and motor skills. We can refer you to additional support if your child is having difficulty in any of these developmental areas.

Speech and Language

Our children’s Speech Pathologists help children to develop appropriate speech sounds as well as their understanding and use of verbal language. Our team can provide screening, at your request, to identify any speech or language difficulties in children and provide recommendations for appropriate therapies to support your child.

School Readiness Vision Screening

As part of our commitment to the health and development of each child, we offer every child a complimentary vision screening as part of our school readiness program. The screenings are completed the year before your child starts school by our Consultant Orthoptist (in VIC and QLD) and NSW Health in NSW and aims to detect vision issues before school commences.

 

 

Nutritious meals

We passionately believe that good early childhood nutrition plays a vital role in a child’s physical and mental development.

“As busy working parents, we love that our daughter receives all of her meals and snacks. It gives us peace of mind knowing that she is enjoying nutritious food and it also offers us convenience as we don’t worry about packing a lunchbox for her each day”
