We offer full and part time care for children ages 2 years until your child is ready for school. Our ethos and practice values Diversity and promotes equality. The voice and the child is central to the care we provide in the setting. The children in our setting learn in a caring environment and their voices contribute to our program. We aim to make Whitefriars childcare accessible to all members of the community.
We have refurbished our building here to cater for children ages 2 years plus to explore their sense of wonder and natural curiosity which is catered for by our dedicated and passionate team. During your child’s time here we will help your child explore their social, emotional physical and intellectual needs through play and specialized activities catered for these needs.
We operate an open door policy so you are welcome at any time to come in and spend time with your child and ask any questions to our team. If you would like to know more about our setting you can drop into our service or email us. We look forward to hearing from you!
Preschool and ECCE
At Whitefriars we are passionate about childcare. We view the child’s holistic development and document this through our learning stories, observational studies and our learning journals that are specific for each child filled with paintings, stories, poems and pictures of your child enjoying their time here. We support your child’s development through a playful, fun and calming atmosphere.
Preschool children love to question the world around them and we support this through themes of the month and also through our emergent curriculum that the children help create on a weekly and monthly basis. We recognise that these years are important to the children’s foundations going forward into primary school and support these by helping your child become independent learners by encouraging them to be active in their own journey
When your child is ready for preschool we will offer them the free enrollment for the ECCE program. These are a free 2 years from the hours of 9am-12pm or 1pm-4pm per day. You can also keep your child for additional hours just ask our team today!
