Banjora Childrens Centre

Banjora Children’s Centre is our not-for-profit 50-place long day care centre. We provide care for children from 6 weeks to 5 years of age.

We are committed to providing high-quality education and care for children, and believe that to do this we also need to be continually improving our practices. The National Quality Framework gives us the opportunity to demonstrate our practices and be assessed to ensure that we are providing high-quality services.

Belonging, Being and Becoming

The Early Years Learning Framework for Australia informs the development of our programs to enhance each child's learning and development. Our programs are designed to enable children to learn through play - interacting with peers and educators to extend their learning, encounter new ideas and challenge their thinking.

Our educators are skilled in extending children's learning through intentional teaching, responding to spontaneous events and taking a holistic approach to learning and well being. Our environments are welcoming spaces where children can move between a variety of experiences at their own pace, guided by their own interests.

  • Our large outdoor play environments provide children with opportunities to care for the environment, develop their risk skills and enjoy being outside in a space with lots of trees for shade.
