Blue Gum Cottage Children’s Centre is far more than a childcare centre, we are an extended family where your child will be valued, respected and nurtured. We welcome parents and relatives to participate in our program and value a close relationship between the centre and home. Our program is based on the children’s interests which facilitates life long learning and important life skills.
Blue Gum Cottage Children’s Centre is a 28-place not-for-profit, community based long day care centre. As a registered cooperative, the centre has a board of directors comprised of 3 volunteer parents, who are elected at our Annual General Meeting.
As a not-for-profit centre all decisions that are made are in the best interest of the children and families that attend and all money goes back into the running of the centre, allowing Blue Gum Cottage to provide nappies, cream, wipes, sunscreen and all meals within the daily rate and is fortunate to have excellent educator to child ratio.
At Blue Gum Cottage we understand how important the early years are for providing learning opportunities for your child’s development. Blue Gum Cottage strives to provide an environment where children can develop their intellectual, emotional, physical and social skills to become competent and confident individuals.
Alongside our programming, Blue Gum Cottage runs the Early Learning Languages Australia (ELLA) program, monthly visits to our local library, Jolly Phonics Program, Junior Jive and social events with our local community plus incursions and excursions relating to the children’s current interests.
We are open from 7.30am-6.00pm from Monday to Friday and open for 49 weeks of the year, situated in the quiet leafy suburb of Chifley; away from the main road.
