Children: Belonging, Being & Becoming
Your child is not just looked after, but really educated and cared for. At Smarty Pants Early Learning Centre our aim is to provide a secure and happy environment where children can develop their intellectual, social, emotional, physical and aesthetic skills to become competent and confident individuals. We recognise the unique influences that family, community and education have in a child’s life and we aim to create an environment where trusting relationships are formed through open communication and a welcoming atmosphere.
We are a privately owned and operated Child Care Centre, established in response to the needs of our community and surrounding areas, to provide increased child care facilities of a high standard for both working and non-working families.
We are proud of the secure and stimulating environment we have created and believe that childcare is a combined responsibility, involving the child, parents, family and our dedicated childcare staff.
Our outdoor environment allows the imagination of a child to blossom and encourages learning through exploration. At Smarty Pants Early Learning Centre we recognise that Children are active learners who develop at individual rates – and they are treated this way!
