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.
I have been working within the Children’s Services industry for over 20 years. Having worked in Australia and the United Kingdom, the majority of my experience has been with the 0 – 3 years age group. I love watching little ones develop their personalities through such an enormous period of growth and development. My passion is encouraging young children to develop their independence and a curiosity in their world around them that inspires them to actively explore. I have been an Early Childhood Educator, a nanny and also volunteered at the Queensland Children’s Hospital in Brisbane, providing bedside entertainment to children battling cancer.
I have one year to go to complete my Bachelor of Education (Early Childhood). I have 3 years experience working as a Centre Manager. This has enabled me to work with families and educators from many cultural and socioeconomic backgrounds and provided me with a lot of knowledge about how to best support them.
I believe the key to providing quality early learning environments and care for young children is a collaborative effort between the children, their families and educators. As they say, “It takes a village to raise a child!”
At Banksia House we understand how important relationships are, between children and their families, children and their educators, families and the educators. Strong relationships between all ensure children are best supported in their early learning adventures.
Come in anytime to have a look around the Centre. My door is always open!
