After School Care
Our child care in Wembley extends to after school care programs which are available to families with primary aged school children enrolled at Newman College.
While children can choose to complete any homework or other outside-of-school tasks, this is a time and space where your child can relax from their busy day and even enjoy some afternoon tea.
To support families and give working parents more flexibility when it comes to their work/life balance, our Wembley Centre is the first day care in Perth to offer BubDesk. This is a work space for parents, located on the same site as their child’s day care. The office gives parents a quiet working environment with access to Wifi, printers and parking.
“BubDesk is the perfect solution for me because my son refuses to take a bottle, so being at the same site will allow me to feed him throughout the day.”
We strongly support children in developing their sense of belonging to their community and encourage them to participate in the centre’s weekly activities and incursions. We have an adventurous teddy bear who stays with a different family each week, learning how each family spends their weekends. Recapping journal entries from the visit encourages children to develop their social skills and learn about different cultures and lifestyles in a comfortable, fun way. Our educators expand on these learning experiences in a natural relaxed way.
Our Wembley Early Learning Centre is co-located with our Wembley Residential Aged Care facility. We are the only organisation in WA to have a co-located site for aged care and childcare. Co-location brings great benefits to our youngest and oldest West Australians when they become connected. Spending time with older Australians forms valuable intergenerational bonds that many children do not have the opportunity to experience.
It has been suggested that children in intergenerational daycare programs are more patient, express more empathy, exhibit more self-control and have better manners than children in traditional programs. Creating this intergenerational opportunity means children are exposed to the traditions and wisdoms of previous generations while developing respect and empathy the for older members of the community.By creating art, listening to stories and playing games, children have a new social circle at the Early Learning Centre to share ideas and learn new skills with.
