Parents need to supply milk bottles ensuring they are clearly named and have bottle lids. Located in the fridge there is an area with named baskets to put your child's bottles or dummies into to ensure cross contamination does not occur. On arrival educators will fill out the bottle receipt chart to ensure bottles are not left in bags after a period of 5 minutes. Any contents left after being re-heated will be disposed of.

During the day, the children participate in a large variety of activities. This may include dress ups, art and craft, playing in the home corner, puzzles/blocks/books, singing and dancing, table activities etc. These activities are based on observations taken of the children to help develop their interest and cater for their needs.

The toddlers have their own outside play area, as well as their own yard with a sandpit, swing set and other play equipment. The toddlers combine with the other aged group yard after 3.30pm. A hat must be worn at all times when leaving the room into the outside yard. The centre supplies sunscreen which is applied 30 minutes before children go outside.

We do not expect that all of our children sleep during this time but we do require all children to be on their beds for health and safety reasons while the floors are mopped and the toys are sanitised. Quiet activities on beds are fine.
