Gatton Child Care
This centre is a non-profit community-based long day care centre, with the aim to provide a home-like atmosphere within a caring and stimulating environment. Parents or guardians are able to ask for information at any time about the activities and experiences offered, our philosophy about learning and child development outcomes, and how we intend that the outcomes will be achieved. The staff strive to build a trusting and secure setting for both children and parents. Our program is based on the philosophy of Emergent Curriculum.It provides care for full-time and occasional care (subject to availability) from birth to school age.
