Health and Nutrition

Children need healthy and nutritious meals to ensure they have the energy they require to play, learn and grow! We are dedicated to ensuring that the children eat healthily and receive the right amount of exercise for their growing bodies.

Starting with breakfast, our onsite chef provides a range of meals in line with our ‘Start Right, Eat Right’ program. Breakfast is generally an assortment of cereals and toast with jam, vegemite and cream cheese for toppings. The foods the children eat rotate on a monthly basis and can include options such as different fruits, stir-fry, Moroccan chicken, nachos, banana cake, and dips and crackers, to name just a few.

We are also more than happy to cater for unique dietary requirements, whether they are for allergic or cultural reasons.

Activities

At Aussie Kindies Werribee, we place great emphasis on outdoor play as it allows us to discuss nature and sustainability in a natural setting. The children are particularly fond of our vegetable garden, worm farm and pet rabbits!

We encourage all of the children in our care to explore diversity and multiculturalism through books, music, displays, posters, events and from educational visits from community members.

Our program of extracurricular activities brings our centre to life at special times throughout the year. We welcome community members and specialist educators and entertainers to the centre on a regular basis. We also take part in a range of community and multicultural events, such as:

  • NAIDOC
  • Harmony Day
  • Christmas
  • Easter

We invite our families to participate in some of our extracurricular activities and we also welcome new suggestions!

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.
