It's the small things
that make us just right.
Babies at Blue Gum Cottage
Our homely babies room is self-contained and has its own secure garden area. Our team ensure we follow your child’s routine enabling your child to settle quickly into day care.
We understand that sending your child to day care can be a stressful and upsetting time, so we welcome you to call anytime during the day to enquire how your child is.
The educators take extra care to provide a suitable holistic program for all the children, catering for their ages and capabilities.
Preschoolers at Blue Gum Cottage
The Preschool children enjoy a fun filled day with a huge variety of learning experiences both indoor and outdoor, enabling children to make decisions regarding their learning.
The educators use the children’s interests to plan the program, providing age appropriate learning experiences that follow the EYLF; Belonging, Being and Becoming.
Preschool children also visit Malabar Library once a month, attending their School Readiness program; enjoying some stories, a short film and then a related craft activity.
We also provide a Preschool Readiness Program, with teacher led group times. At Blue Gum we all enjoy using the Jolly Phonics program, this is a kinesthetic way of learning the letter sounds, where all the children learn the action and song; making learning the alphabet exciting for all ages.
