During the enrolment process, it is essential to have a conversation with each family about the nutritional and dietary requirements of their child. This will guarantee that our meals are able to meet your child’s specific requirements. In addition to this, we work hard to educate the children on topics related to health and nutrition, including how to make decisions regarding fresh foods and how to strike a balance in their diet.

Our daily seasonal menu includes items such as:

  • Morning tea
  • Freshly cooked lunch
  • Afternoon tea
  • Fresh fruit and water is provided all-day
  • All dietary requirements catered for
  • Late snack provided

The Environment

Guthrie Street Child Care Centre’s dynamic and child-friendly atmosphere encourages communication, risk-taking, experimentation, links to nature, play, and collaboration, and it also complies with all applicable laws and regulations. Our top focus is for the child’s well-being.

When provided with a stimulating educational setting, the children in our care are able to flourish, grow, and accomplish their own individual educational objectives. Children should be inspired to have more meaningful learning experiences and the setting should be intriguing, engaging, and stimulating.
