Creating big futures for little people since 1974

Pre-Kinder Child Care

Care for children aged 2 to 3½ years

Tiny Town Child Care Centre and Kindergarten is a wonderful place for young children to make friends, have fun and learn skills that will help them through their future schooling.

Each day we support up to 27 children who are educated and nurtured by experienced and qualified educators in a caring environment. The day includes a mix of age-specific and multi-age activities and groupings with our kindergarten-aged children, as we seek to develop each child’s self-esteem, self-reliance and competence.

The Early Years Learning Framework of Australia

A child led, play based day care

Every child is supported to develop at their own pace through a variety of rich, play-based experiences that challenge and engage them, leading to meaningful learning opportunities.

Our early childhood program utilises the emergent curriculum approach, and is mapped to the nationally recommended Early Years Learning Framework (EYLF). This encourages experiences based on the interests of the children, enhancing their learning while providing a sense of belonging and accomplishment.

The children spend time indoors and outdoors each day. Our interactive playground has been transformed in February 2019 to offer more natural elements including a creek and vegetable patch. The children also have a quiet or rest time each afternoon after lunch.

Well-rounded Child Care

During their time at our Enoggera Child Care Centre children are:

  • Inspired to embrace a learning mindset as natural way of being.
  • Supported to become more confident with talking, sharing, taking turns, making friends and generally becoming more self-assured.
  • Introduced to the world of formal learning through basic literacy and numeracy concepts.
  • Encouraged to become more independent and given opportunities to make choices and participate as individual thinkers.
  • Shown the importance of routines and self-help skills such as toilet training, helping to pack things away and looking after their belongings.

We do all of this in an environment where each child’s social and cultural background is respected and valued and in fact adds to the magic of our time together.

The Early Years Learning Framework (EYLF)

The Early Years Learning Framework is the approved learning framework under the NQF for young children from birth to five years of age.

The concepts of belonging, being and becoming are fundamental to EYLF and are integral to our program which is delivered by qualified educators. We ensure children are:

  • Encouraged to develop meaningful relationships with others (Belonging)
  • Accepted for who they are (Being)
  • Provided with experiences to develop the mind, body and spirit (Becoming)

Our programs are play-based to enable children to organise and make sense of their world, as they actively engage with people, activities and experiences that are appropriate and meaningful to them.

We support mutual respect and an open exchange of information between parents, staff and management. By sharing information we can work together to provide an environment that strengthens and supports children’s growth and learning.

Families are encouraged to participate, and contribute their ideas, experience and insights.
