Please have a read through some of the wonderful Google reviews left by families both current and past.

Teachers are nice and caring. The playground needs a swing. It’s very spacious than most daycare centres and very clean. They are new and already doing so well.

Fatema A Munia

Fantastic childcare centre. Staff are extremely professional and friendly. Makes leaving my daughter there easy knowing that she is in safe hands. Staff go the extra mile to make sure parents feel at ease and involved in everyday happenings of a child’s day. Lots of structured learning opportunities and sensory play. Would highly recommend.

What our parents ask about Minto childcare centre

Finding a quality child care service in Minto is no easy task, but we have provided answers to some frequently asked questions to help make this a little easier.

Do I need to pay for child care in Minto?

Some Government run child care are currently free for families, however it is important to note that these daycares often have quite a long waitlist. It’s important to contact Centrelink to find out how much government subsidy you can receive as this definitely helps to cut down the cost of childcare in Minto.

What are the different types of early childhood programs?

All daycares / early education centres follow the EYLF which outlines the areas in which a program should focus on. These include learning activities where children can problem solve, be curious and challenge their abilities. Communication activities where children need to articulate their thoughts and feelings. Gross motor experiences, including risky play. Social activities where children work together and understand fairness. As well as activities that outline emotions and understanding empathy and the feelings of others. All early learning centres will have age-appropriate experiences based of the children’s interests, that work towards one of more of these outcomes.

How many days a week should my child go to Minto early learning centre?

It is recommended to slowly ease your child into the longer days of primary school and therefore a few months before your child starts school many preschools and early learning centres will encourage you to increase your childs days to ensure they are prepared for that transition. Between the ages of 0-3 we often suggest 2 days for children especially as this helps with the initial settling period. From 3-5 years of age then we encourage at least 3 days to again help with that transitioning to school. No matter how many days you choose or can afford to send your child to an early learning centre in Minto, they will benefit greatly by challenging their social skills, emotional skills, self help skills and so much more.

Is 6 months too early for childcare?

Children benefit from Early Childhood education at all ages. Enrolling your baby in Early Childhood education can have a range of benefits, examples include:

  • Boosted immune systems
  • Children of a young age develop bonds easier so therefore they will often be easier to settle into childcare.
  • Support with developing strong routines especially as children transition from multiple bottles and sleeps per day.
  • Support through growth transitions such as teething, growing pains etc.
  • They will have developed strong bonds with educators and peers by the time they have to transition to the larger rooms so this transition is often easier.
What is the difference between childcare and early childhood education?

Centres will often brand themselves differently from daycare, childcare, early childhood education, kindy and more. We all follow the Early Years Learning Framework for the programs we offer the children in our care. We also all fall under the National Quality Framework and Standard as well as National Regulations so all centres must adhere to these regulations and guidelines.

What is an early learning centre?

Early Learning centres much like other daycares and kindy all follow the early years learning framework which focuses on educators working with families and children to develop children confident identities, communication skills, health and well-being, curiosity, resilience and so much more. Programs are developed using this framework and educators work with families to ensure their programs are incorporating the individual needs of every child.
