About

Welcome to Butterflies Early Learning and Childcare!

Our Program and Curriculum

At Butterflies we implement the Early Years Learning Framework to extend and enrich Children's learning through opportunities which maximise their potential and develop the foundations for future success in learning.

Our program provides children with opportunities, experiences and routines that take into consideration each child's developmental level and interests. Children are encouraged to select their own experiences from a range of choices, thus giving children control over their environment. Play-based problem-solving with other children and an adult is an early learning strategy that has a crucial effect on early brain development and should be the format for children entering the school system.

Routines are an important part of a young child's play but they must remain flexible enough to take into consideration each child's particular needs at the time.

The Centre provides a balance of indoor and outdoor experiences that allow children to naturally progress through their own unique stage of learning. The curriculum features child-initiated experiences that allow young minds to be continually sharpened.

Staff members negotiate the curriculum with the children and actively seek input from parents in regards to their child's likes, interests and events that occur in the home. Children's interests are developed into a broad theme through which curriculum goals are achieved by introducing appropriate language (both oral and written), maths and science concepts. For example, block play provides ample opportunities for children to experiment with the maths concepts of counting, sorting, shape, size and special awareness. With the introduction of signs for roadways, work-areas and buildings children become aware of words and their purpose. Careful planning to introduce these topics, while children are playing, provides a vibrant education which has real meaning for the child.

Throughout the year, staff are compiling a portfolio for your child to keep at the end of the year. Parents are welcome to view this portfolio and to contribute information regarding their child at any time. Your child's portfolio will be in electronic form and is given to parents at the end of the year on CD.

Staffing

The Centre is staffed in full accordance with the Education and Care Services National Regulations, as to the qualifications and levels of staffing in each room. Each of our three rooms is led by an Early Childhood Teacher.

All staff at the Centre are required to hold a current First Aid Certificate, along with Anaphylaxis and Asthma qualifications, and the Centre encourages staff to undertake further studies and participate in professional development courses to revise and learn new skills, techniques etc.

Both of my two children have attended Butterflies after attending other daycares closer to work. Based on comparison Butterflies has better teachers, a stronger program for development at each stage, and lovely facilities that the kids are drawn to. The undercover outdoor area is essential meaning kids are able eat and play in fresh air even when it's raining. I've also found a strong community of parents encouraged by events and the off-street drop off, very different from other centres where I rarely met or spoke with other parents.

(Translated by Google) The teachers are very good, the family-school connection is close, and the curriculum is rich and reasonable. There are many amusement facilities. Healthy diet (Original) 老师很好,家校联系紧密,课程设置丰富合理。游乐设施多。饮食健康

My three year old has been at Butterflies for a year and she runs out the door excitedly each day to attend. I have been consistently impressed with the quality of the care she receives. Each day she engages in a wide range of activities from yoga, gardening, cooking as well as science and literacy skills. The staff are enthusiastic and caring. I highly recommend Butterflies to all parents.

A fantastic center that holds strong values, our child has been with butterflies for about a month now and the attention to his development is amazing. The team at Butterflies are always happy to try work around our circumstances and with the online app giving us feedback about his development as well as nap times, lunch portions and nappy changes makes a world of difference for us, highly recommend as the team are very family focused, i am enrolling my second son today with them.

Every morning, my son is so excited to go to Butterflies school and during the school holiday, he keep asking us to bring him to the centre. I remember i was not that excited to attend school when i was his age. The educators really did an amazing job !

My daughter has attended Butterflies since age 10mths. 8 months on, she is thriving! The staff are so loving and treat the children as their own, which was the most important thing for me. Everyone has always been very responsive to any queries I have had, and my daughter is so excited to arrive everyday. I could not recommend enough.

My children have been attending Butterflies since they were 5 months old. My kids love going and get excited to see their teachers. They make you feel so comfortable with leaving your children here. Very low staff turn over which is great. Highly recommend!

My 3 kids have been going to butterflies since the age or 3 months. They are now the reason my kids are the way they are now. I highly recommend this place.i wouldn't even think twice about anywhere else .Everyone that works there is family to me from the director to the kitchen hand. Once you drop your kids off you can relax knowing there in the best of hands and will be well looked after and taught. ❤❤❤❤❤

Great carers and educators. Brilliant centre director. High ceilings, heaps of open space internally as well as external. Our 5 years with Butterflies was a smooth experience. Truly 5 star deserved by the Butterflies team...
