Long Day Care
The Island Early Learning offers a variety of yummy nutritious meals and snacks for morning tea, lunch and afternoon tea. We incorporate all five food groups to ensure that children are meeting the guidelines of healthy eating as per the NSW Health’s 'Munch & Move' and 'Crunch & Sip' Programs.
The Island Early Learning also encourages family interactions in our menu planning, and encourages all our families to contribute home recipes, suggestions and traditional meal ideas and where possible invites families to come and cook with the children and share from their cultural heritage
The Island Early Learning boasts an extensive school readiness program for our older children, covering a multitude of different topics along with hands-on experiences which merge the primary school outcomes of the NSW Curriculum & Syllabises with the emergent curriculum of Early Childhood philosophy and practice.
All children participating in the school readiness program have the opportunity to interact with our kindergarten OOSH children to help foster friendships and support for when they make the transition to big school.
The on site OOSH also allows our families to pick up and drop off at one easy location and allows for positive social interaction between siblings in the afternoons.
At The Island Early Learning our team is made up of a variety of talented and experienced Educators that are passionate about early education and the individual development of your child. We pride ourselves on having staff from culturally diverse backgrounds and currently have staff that speak, English, Amharic, Spanish, Hindi and Italian
