There has never been a day since her enrolment where she has not been excited to come in and see her friends and educators. This has made drop offs a breeze for us and even more so, very reassuring that she is having a great time.

With a menu end endorsed by Nutrition Australia, the centre understands the critical role they play in meeting the nutritional needs of children in their care.
The 4 week rotating menu offer a good variety and balance, meeting 50% of the individual dietary needs of children as advised by the Australian Dietary Guidelines for children. Some of the children’s favourite meals and snacks are spaghetti bolognese and savoury cheese roll-ups.
The children learn about food and healthy eating by assisting the educators with the vegetable gardens. They grow and harvest produce, and take part in regular cooking demonstrations with the centre chef.
Ava is an eight month old who loves the messy play area at Little Scholars. She starts her day here and gets her hands dirty with some mud and water.
Ava likes it when her educators read to her and tell stories. She enjoys two books before she settles down for a bottle and a nap in the sleeping area.
The educators are putting on a fun puppet show for the nursery children. Ava loves the songs and the funny voices that she hears.
Joseph is two and a half and loves the weekly music program at Little Scholars. Today he is having some fun with a xylophone, trying to follow the pattern that he can hear.
After lunch, Joseph takes part in an incursion, where the children listen to the experiences of Indigenous elder Aunty Janice.
For the final part of the day, Joseph and some of the other toddlers take part in a relaxing yoga session with their educator. Who can balance on one leg?
Poppy is four years old and her favourite part of the week is the centre’s Bush Kinder program. The children head out into nature, collect sticks, climb trees and look for animals in the wild.
Poppy loves collecting produce from the veggie garden for the centre chef to use in the cooking demonstration. Today the children are preparing their own pizzas for lunch.
Poppy’s weekly Japanese lessons, taught by Gai Sensei, have helped her learn to count to ten in Japanese.

In January 2012 the National Quality Framework (NQF) came into effect across Australia.
The purpose of the NQF is to improve and standardise the quality of child care through a range of measures including better staff to child ratios, higher staff qualifications and an assessment and rating system designed to promote continuous improvement.
Under the NQF child care services are assessed and rated against the National Quality Standards (NQS).
The NQS measures the quality of early childhood education and care in Australia. It will cover
most long day care, family day care, preschool/kindergarten and outside school hours care services.
Under these standards child care services will be assessed and rated against the seven quality areas, 18 standards and 58 elements that make up the NQS.
