6 Weeks - 3 Years
Treetops Stepney Banksia House opened in September 2007. At the purpose built centre we offer care for children from 6 weeks to 3 years in an environment that caters to the developmental needs of babies and toddlers. As a fully serviced centre you supply the child and we supply most other things – meals and snacks, nappies, sunscreen.
The centre has a four rooms, children do not move from one room to the next according to age but rather when they are ready. Staff evaluate a child’s overall development and learning, through written observation, before discussing the next move with the parents.
Our team values providing our children with support through their developmental milestones. We offer a warm and inviting atmosphere to allow the children and their families to feel a sense of security and belonging in our centre. Our educators guide the children’s learning abilities through supporting their individual needs and interests.
Parents are always welcome to join us and share their child’s day. As a parent you are the best resource and staff welcome your input into your child’s day and the centre’s activities. We encourage parents to share their special talents with us.
My name is Justine and I am the Director at Treetops Stepney.
I have a very extensive background in early childhood. Starting when I was 11 babysitting the neighbour’s children. I have grown from a Certificate 3 in Early childhood, to Obtaining my diploma, moving on to my Advance diploma, a diploma in Child Psychology, and currently studying Play therapy.
With two children of my own 16-year-old son and 13-year-old daughter, it is so nice to be able to spend time with the younger generation. I enjoy listening to them, watching them grow and develop and they continue to amaze and inspire me daily.
I will treat your child as an individual and encourage them to reach their very greatest potential. I believe in “real life” experiences, encouraging risky play, allowing children to determine the level of risk they are willing to take, all while supporting them, should they need it. I want your children to make choices, to make mistakes and learn from them.
I will encourage your child to try their very best at anything they have a go at. I believe every child can achieve anything under the right guidance. Children learn best through play, and myself and my wonderful team will be there for your child should they need us.
I will respect your child for who they are, and always make time for them.
I look forward to meeting with you and your child soon.
