CHILD CARE PROGRAMS
Kyneton Community & Learning Centre operates a Victorian registered Child Care Service. The service provides occasional child care programs to support families with their full time role of raising pre-school children.
The quality child care programs enable parents to attend appointments, study, work, participate in social and recreation activities and take time out. With many families new to the area and isolated from extended families this service is highly valued by the local community.
KC&LC Occasional Care / Pre-Kinder Group Centre is where children, families and staff are treated as equal and valued individuals. Children are encouraged to develop to their full potential within a safe, caring and supportive environment. Our aim is to provide families with access to a range of quality services which complement and enhance wherever possible, the care and expectations of all parents.
We provide a program based on the developmental needs, interests and experiences of each child. We achieve this by using appropriate materials, a supportive environment and positive, friendly interactions. We base our practice on sound knowledge, research and theories, while at the same time recognizing the limitations and uncertainties of these. We work as a team to encourage each child to build on existing skills and extend them in all developmental domains.
Children who attend often refer to the service as “Jo’s House” in reference to Joanne Woodman the Child Care Co-ordinator and the homely atmosphere provided by the Child Care team of staff and volunteers.
