Bennett Springs Early Learning Centre
At Bennett Springs we pride ourselves on being a family friendly centre, where staff value and develop meaningful relationships with the children, families, our colleagues and community. Our centre has been architecturally designed to foster the natural elements of our learning environment and we ensure our curriculum is enriched through the play based learning opportunities it provides. Being a multicultural centre, our cook prepares meals from numerous cultures that cater for any special dietary needs, food intolerances or allergies.
Our Services Offer
We strongly support children in developing their sense of belonging to their community and encourage children to participate in the day care’s weekly activities as well as incursions. We have an adventurous teddy bear who spends time with a different family each week to learn about how each family spends their weekends. Recapping journal entries from the visit encourages children to learn about different cultures and lifestyles in a comfortable, fun way.
