Our People

We are proud of our team of dedicated early childhood professionals. From our Educators right through to our professional centre Chef, all of our staff members are highly qualified, passionate, and enthusiastic about your child’s individual educational journey.

Our Educators

Our warm and caring Educators are the heart and soul of our childcare centre, and they are committed to helping every child reach their full potential. Fully-qualified, and with a deep understanding of how young children learn and develop, our Educators play an integral role in your child’s development and wellbeing.

Training and Development

Our staff members remain inspired and motivated, and keep abreast of current research and developments in the area of early childhood education, through professional development training.

All of our staff hold current CPR and First Aid certificates. They also adhere to the Education and Care Services National Law and the Education and Care Services National Regulations.

Our Community

We are a proud of the wonderful childcare centre we have created for our families and our community. We aim to provide a safe and welcoming haven in the Sydney CBD, where parents can be assured that their child is safe and happy while in our care.

Our Logo

Our Chifley Early Learning Centre logo was inspired by the iconic heritage and cityscape of Sydney, the amazing city that we call home. Chifley Tower is blessed with incredible harbour views, and we have chosen to showcase the unique beauty of Sydney’s cityscape in our hand drawn illustration, which features the Sydney Harbour Bridge and the Sydney Opera House.

Our Families

We welcome every family as part of our Chifley Early Learning Centre family. We aim to continually go above and beyond, to ensure every family’s journey with us is a magical one full of wonderful and lasting memories. We value our parents as their child’s first teacher, and we work with you to ensure your child has the very best start to their educational journey.

Nutrition

Excellent nutrition is vital to a child’s mental and physical well-being and development, and growing bodies need fuel for learning and play.

Our centre meals

We provide all of our children with a morning snack, lunch, afternoon tea, a little late snack, and beverages too.

Our professional centre Chef carefully plans our centre menus to ensure they are developmentally appropriate and provide our children with at least half of their daily nutritional requirements. Meals are prepared in our onsite kitchen daily from fresh and local ingredients. We offer children a varied menu that is full of healthy and fresh options we know they will enjoy.

What if my child has allergies or cannot eat certain food?

We work with all of our families to ensure that we are aware of any allergies, intolerances, or cultural needs your child may have when it comes to food. We are happy to cater for any additional needs or requirements that your child may have.

Education

We believe educating young children about the importance of excellent nutrition, sets them on the right path to continue to make healthy choices around food as they grow older. Our curriculum places emphasis on teaching children how to make healthy food choices and the importance of nourishing their bodies.

Sustainability

Sustainability and our Curriculum

We are honoured to have an important role in assisting children to learn to protect and cherish our natural world. Our curriculum teaches sustainable practices and encourages children to develop an appreciation and love for the natural environment. Children learn by example, and our Educators actively promote sustainable practices and taking care of the beautiful world we live in.

Our Centre Design

Our commitment to sustainability has laid the foundations for the eco-conscious design of our state-of-the-art childcare centre. Our centre features high-quality sustainable materials throughout. Our focus on beautiful indoor gardens and natural materials creates a magical haven where children are inspired and delight in their surrounds. Our innovative play spaces are inviting and encourage children to explore and investigate their natural world. These play spaces include areas for active play to ignite children’s curiosity and imagination, and areas for quiet play where children feel calm and relaxed.

Embracing Technology

As a futures-orientated childcare centre, with a focus on providing high-quality education, we embrace and integrate technology into our curriculum and in our parent interactions.

Learning in the Classroom

Our Early Years Math, Literacy, and Science Programs are delivered through interactive whiteboards and classroom iPads to expand, enrich, extend, and differentiate the curriculum.

EDUCA

We have teamed up with EDUCA, an online program which showcases the individual child’s learning portfolio. Parents have access to their child’s profile online, meaning they can conveniently follow their child’s learning journey and collaboratively provide input into their learning and development.

Parent Kiosks

Digital kiosks are located at the entrance of our facility, making the process of signing your children in and out of our childcare centre quick and easy.
