“We believe that all children are special, individual, precious gifts from God”
“We believe as in God’s eyes, all children are to be loved and cared for as equals…”
“We believe that children are God’s way of saying the world should live on…”
At BearChildCare Centres we strive to create a warm, natural and homely environment for the personal care and education of your child. We aim to encourage your child to thrive, by providing stimulating, varied, fun and creative developmental opportunities through play that enriches the children through these important first years.
We openly welcome families of all cultural & religious backgrounds and thrive to promote multiculturalism and diversity. The Centres are operated with a Christian ethos; saying Grace before meals and celebrating Easter & Christmas. Our BearChildCare Bus enables our Pre-School Cubs to venture out into the local community on a monthly basis, to explore local cultural, Govt. & educational centres of opportunity, such as sports, libraries, businesses, parklands, & nursing homes. We recognize the original custodians of the land – the Darug & Dharawal people – sharing this respect to learn & understand more with our children.
Our qualified team of professional educators are dedicated and caring individuals who believe in the importance of high level personal interactions. Our professional Performance Management Program has been designed to assist our staff to maintain the highest level of qualifications, knowledge & training that is available to them.
At BearChildCare Centres, we believe in the philosophy of Teamwork. The success of our Team not only involves members of our staff & children, but in partnering with the parents & families of our children – by complimenting the care that they receive at home, reflected in our home like setting & free flow program. Respecting & maintaining a child safe environment, we strongly encourage staff & families to understand that we must all play our role in protecting our children; in keeping them safe & complying with Child Safe Standards.
We believe that you, the parents and families of our children, play the most significant role in your child’s life. Equally, you have an important role in Bear Child Care’s success through your valued communication, participation and involvement with the Centre and your child’s Educator.
We believe in modelling strict hygiene and safety standards and sustainability awareness in the Centre, for the children/educators/volunteers and families to learn and adopt. We believe in utilising positive role-modelling and communication as this encourages and promotes positive behaviour; acceptance and language; individuality; and helps a child develop strong self-concept and esteem. This is achieved through consistency, guidance, patience and routine, working under the Early Years Learning Framework.
Our Aim for every child, is “Empowerment- Being, Belonging and Becoming”
To guide them and care for them so that they may be able to:
- Believe in themselves
- Feel a sense of Belonging
- Be confident
- Be independent
- Develop friendships
- Experiment and explore
- Achieve their own successes
