The babies room is a very special place at Farran Street. Unlike the large commercial centres, the first thing you notice about Farran Street is the warm homely, loving atmosphere. Having a high staff to children ratio in this room allows carers to create loving and nurturing bonds with the children in their care.

This well resourced room, has equipment ranging from blocks, books, art, craft, dress -ups, aesthetic area, multicultural / multilingual music, and a quiet loving ambiance which sometimes excites and sometimes relaxes all designed to meet the behavioral and cognitive needs of your child.

Children

We respect each child as an individual and therefore we provide a child centred approach program that focuses on the individual child's needs, strengths and interests through observations and ensure all developmental areas are covered. All activities provided are age/stage appropriate. Our philosophy supports the view that all children are treated equally regarding gender, age, race, language ability or culture.

Activities

We provide activities that cater for:

  • Gross and Fine motor skills.
  • Language and Problem solving skills and
  • Emotional and Social development skills.

Communication

We communicate using a wide range of methods:
Notice board,
Communication book,
Suggestion box,
Newsletters,

as well as verbal interactions.

Families are encouraged to share knowledge of their child with the staff to allow us to care for their children to the best of our ability. Overall, we are a continually changing centre that provides a safe environment for all who come to our home. We strive to provide a high standard of care at all times.
