Health and Nutrition

With an onsite chef to prepare delicious meals, your child will love our healthy eating options. As well as fruit and veggie snacks, there are interesting cultural dishes to try like beef goulash, creamy chicken curry and chilli con carne.

Make Your Own Pizza day is a favourite for everyone, where the children are hands-on in creating their own meal! There’s plenty of milk and water to drink, but no sugary drinks.

We have a four-weekly rotating menu that provides plenty of variety. If your child has any special dietary requirements, then please let us know. We are happy to accommodate all allergy, intolerance and cultural requirements.

Activities

Every day is an adventure at EarlyCare Darwin City. Our play-based curriculum takes full advantage of the spacious outdoor area with climbing and balancing equipment, room to run, skip and jump, or set up an obstacle course. Inside the centre there are all sorts of ways to get creative with dancing, painting, role play and more.

Special visitors are a great way to keep learning fresh, interesting and fun. We are so lucky to have Healthy Harold and Hector the Cat make regular visits to help us with safety awareness.

We also enjoy celebrating cultural days like:

  • NAIDOC Week
  • Chinese New Year

Sustainability Practices

Families can get involved by donating recyclable materials and containers. Children are encouraged to be active recyclers and learn to use left-over drinking water to feed the plants. As future stewards of our world, these embedded practices and good habits help us all to create a sustainable future.

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.
