Quick catch up ......

Providing the best early childhood experience for both the child and the family.  We do this by


  1. BulletEncouraging children to follow their own interests, to become, in a sense, the catalyst for their own curriculum. The children provide the lead for the adults within the Centre, involve themselves in individual and group projects and where possible are encouraged to record what they have done in their own words - through paint, craft, clay, song or drawing.

  2. BulletAllowing each child in our care to achieve their potential and to find ways to achieve this creatively.

  3. BulletCreating environments where children can become enthusiastic, inquiring and challenged and where families see how important they are to their children’s lives and learning.

  4. BulletProviding an holistic approach to early childhood through our  Early Childhood Services - Dorothy Waide Centre for Early Learning (Long Day Care) and Griffith Central Preschool (Preschool) and Griffith Connections (our family Support Program.
