About Penguin Childcare Rosebud

   4 ratings more

At Penguin Childcare Rosebud we embrace cultural diversity and include all who may be interested in using our centres. Children are nurtured to make their own positive choices and when exploring within the world they learn, play and live.

We encourage the development of all life skills, to achieve high self-esteem and to show respect to each other through turn-taking, sharing, discussion and positive role modelling.

Our play environments are bush-like settings which enhances the understanding of nature and its part in the world. We use natural products and resources to develop imagination and creativity within children.

Penguin Childcare Rosebud has also developed its own style of planning to create individual learning for each child. Every child helps to create their own individual portfolio masterpiece. Our child-based education program has been developed through interaction and discussion with the children and their families. We encourage family and community involvement with our open house policy.

Our daily menus are designed to ensure all children receive 50% of their daily intake of nutrients and our sleep routines follow the children’s needs and daily rituals to ensure that sleep time is peaceful and relaxed.

Penguin Rosebud is located in the Mornington Peninsula region of Victoria and we are open from 6:00am – 6:00pm from Monday to Friday. We cater for children from birth through to six years.

We would love to welcome you to our centre to show you around!

Flexible Hours

Our centre is offering Flexible Hours to support families to make the most out of the government’s Child Care Subsidy. Consisting of nine-hour, ten-hour, and full day options, the new Flexible Hours model will give families the freedom to choose which hours best suit their individual circumstances. Families will not be limited by start and finish times like other models from competitors, and there will be no associated fees or conditions around the minimum amount of flexible hours days they are able to access. To learn more watch our Flexible Hours video by clicking the video button above.

My Son has been going here for a little over 6 months and his growth and development has been outstanding. The staff at penguin are very welcoming and and easy to speak to. I would highly recommend anyone to come here they are just outstanding and do anything to help your child feel happy and comfortable even when there are a little overwhelmed.
I have had both of my children at this centre for the last 6 1/2 years and the staff are a part of our extended family now. The educators are always so enthusiastic to see my children and even though my daughter is at school now, she still gets a very warm welcome when at the centre, as does any other member of my family. The educators are lovely and the centre itself is very warm and inviting. Wouldn't have my children anywhere else.
