Age Groups

Children are welcome to attend any number of days that are required. We do not have a minimum or maximum number per week.

We split our centres into 3 groups, 2-3 year olds, 3-4 year olds and 4-5 year olds. In doing this we are able ensure that all children are with children their own ages and programs are developmentally appropriate for each group. We operate with a higher staff to child ratio than recommended by the Education and Care Services National Regulations to ensure the safety and wellbeing of your child at all times

Philosophy

At Footsteps Early Learning Centre we believe that early childhood is a unique and privileged stage of life. We believe that:

Our role is to assist children to reach their full potential.

Children should be cared for & educated in a safe & healthy environment.

Our centre should be warm, welcoming & nurturing.
Each child should be accepted & valued as an individual.

Children learn best in an environment that is stimulating & intriguing.

Children require positive encouragement in order to develop confidence & self-esteem.

An atmosphere of cooperation and collaboration is important.

It is important to develop care and respect for others and the environment.


Children learn by doing & as educators and carers, it is our role to support this learning.

Children should be encourage to explore & actively develop positive problem solving skills.

Relationships with children, families and staff that are based on mutual respect, open & honest communication are essential to the children’s wellbeing.

Keeping individual portfolios ensures that our program effectively reflects the children’s strengths & interests.

Meaningful links between home and our centre ensure that families feel part of their child’s life at the centre.

Before & After School Care

We provide Before and After School Care in the school hall at Regina Coeli Catholic School. Our Before School Services begin at 7.00am and continue until the children are walked into the school grounds just prior to the bell ringing at 8.45am. During the morning session, children are given breakfast consisting of cereal, toast and fresh fruit if requested. During this time, children will be able to eat breakfast and participate in some quiet activities or even complete some homework at our homework station prior to going to school.

Our After School Care Service begins as soon as the school bell rings. Kindergarten children are met at their classrooms while the other children meet one of our other staff members in front of the canteen where the roll is marked. Children are then provided time for some outdoor play activities, a nutritious afternoon tea with fresh fruit and participate in indoor and outdoor activities until they are picked up by their parents. Our closing time is 6pm.

Vacation Care

The best thing about school holidays is having fun! The availability of Vacation Care is subject to a minimum of 20 students per day and is also under the discretion of Regina Coeli Catholic School to allow vacation Care to be run each school holidays.

We strive to provide a fun environment with lots of special guests, fun activities and excursions to keep your children happy and entertained that will leave them wanting more every time. Please look out for our Expression of Interest forms that are sent home during each term regarding vacation care.
