How we started
Treloar Child Care Centre was established in 1985/1986 under the state and Federal Governments commitment to establish Child Care Centres and Community Houses in areas of need. The building is owned by the State Government, and as Treloar is a not-for-profit organisation, we are eligible to apply for grants and funding from both the state and federal governments and local community groups.
The centre is a community based, welcoming to both children and families. Our relationships with families are secure, respectful and reciprocal. All families are encouraged to share their culture, language and home experiences.
Our Educators are professional and passionate and actively use the Early Years Learning Framework throughout the Service. Our curriculum's are educational and develop strong foundations for ongoing learning whilst meeting the needs and interests of all children enrolled. We believe that our reflective practices ensure that continuous improvement is ongoing.
The health and safety of our children, families, educators and members of the community is extremely important to the operation of our service.
By having the required policies and procedures in place we are able to manage and maintain an environment that ensures the children are adequately supervised, yet it gives them the freedom to explore learning opportunities at their own pace.
Our centres physical environment allows the children to move freely from indoors to out. By creating engaging open ended play environments we believe that we are able to mirror our families home environments and encourage the children to participate in child initiated learning.
Our Educators interactions with the children are warm and empowering.
