Mudgeeraba Education and Care Centre is a family owned and operated Long Day Care Centre. Our fully qualified team will be on hand to answer any questions which may arise with families and to ensure that the centre is running to its full potential. We are committed to a holistic approach to learning that is fostered in an environment that promotes and supports all aspects of a child’s development. Our qualified and experienced staff are dedicated to providing each child with personalised education to fully prepare them for primary school. And their care is genuine ensuring your child feels nurtured and safe. Some of our educators are multi-lingual adding another cultural dimension to our centre which can also be of assistance to parents whose first language is not English. We’re happy to be able to offer help in the following languages – Portuguese, Swedish and Spanish.
Our philosophy and passion for education stem from our belief that each child is unique and all learn in different ways. We recognise that families are, first and foremost, the child’s most influential teacher. Our goal is to work in collaboration and partnership with you. In doing this, we understand the challenges that families face today balancing work with home life. With this in mind, we like to provide services that support you in doing the most important work of raising your families.
With our philosophy in mind, we would like to introduce some additional services and upgrades to existing policies. These improvements have come from some existing families using the service and some team members who are very passionate and committed to the success of Mudgeeraba Education and Care Centre.
Our outdoor environment is undergoing refurbishment to create a nature zone for the children, using natural and recycled materials where possible. Our philosophy is in line with current research to show that there are many benefits with children playing in natural settings. These include:
Health benefits, such as improved cognitive function.
Improved interaction with adults
Reduced attention deficit hyperactivity disorder symptoms
Reduced rates of aggression
A better immune system.
By working together, we can provide your family with an environment that promotes a high level of quality care and education. We are devoted to providing a warm, safe and caring environment which will become an extension to your home.
As part of our Health and wellness Program we will be introducing: meditation, food gardens, chicken coop, worm farm, composting, bush bees and a Bush Kindy program, where children will be part of a group visiting our local flora and fauna.
