Bentleigh Child Care and KindergartenÂ is staffed by a team of dedicated early childhood professionals. Each room is led by a qualified room leader who is responsible for the development of the Early Learning Program. Supportive assistants work closely with the room leader to ensureÂ the children are cared for in an individual manner.Â Professional development is a crucial part of our commitment to high standards of care. Staff participate in regular staff meetings, workshops and in-service training to further enhance their knowledge and skills.
Our goal is to provide the highest quality care that is a childâ€™s right â€“ stimulating, positive experiences and interactions that will foster all aspects of early childhood development.Â We believe that each child is a unique person with their own experiences, interests and potential. In the early years, children learn through participation in play, modelling and imagination.Â AtÂ the centreÂ we aim to extend a childâ€™s inquisitive nature by providing an inviting, engaging environment with a happy, safe and warm atmosphere.Â By fostering social, cognitive, creative development with emotional security, weÂ develop a strong sense of self worth andÂ groom each child for their school years.
