The building has been designed as a sustainable building that is environmentally responsible and resource efficient.
Our program and practice is child-initiated and adult supported. We base the learning around the children’s interests and making the program available to families via our online curriculum software.
Our indoor outdoor program allows children to move freely throughout the learning environment experiencing both planned and spontaneous learning experiences. To support each child’s interests, routine or developmental needs children make choices to explore their inside or outdoor environment throughout the day as part of the program. The children are supported by a purpose-built environment with play-based zones and outside nature play based environment for every age group.
Child safety is of the utmost importance to us and we have embedded Protective Behaviours into the daily program for all children.
To pay our respect to the traditional custodians of the land we have embedded an Acknowledgement of Country that is said each day with the children. We pride ourselves on being an inclusive service including children, families and staff from a diverse range of abilities and cultures. We acknowledge all cultures and respectfully promote these within our service.
As a parent of two children who have grown up in the care of Susan Teather Centre, it is a lovely feeling to be able to drop off my children before work knowing that they are being cared for in such a safe, loving and educational environment. Both my children adore their carers/educators, and I can't begin to tell you how much they learn whilst having fun. The centre has firm policies and high standards on child illness and safety, which is a testament to how much they care for all the children's wellbeing. My only issue is at pickup when my eldest doesn't want to leave yet, because she's having so much fun... it is also abundantly clear by how much lunch my children eat, that Beats cooking is far superior to my own! I Highly recommend this centre and will be sad when my girls go to big school.
