Welcome to Mother Duck Child Care Kallangur
We provide early childhood education and care across two closely-situated locations. Each location offers a different experience and choice for families. At Anzac Avenue, we enrol children from birth to three years old. The Centre fosters a sense of community with the studios facing a naturally-landscaped playground area and a “restaurant” space for children to relax and enjoy our chef-prepared meals. Our Brewer Street Kindergarten Studio provides large, natural paly spaces along with well resourced indoor studios to promote inquiry-based learning to prepare our children for formal schooling.
We have nurtured a very close connection with Kallangur State School which is located across the road from our Kindergarten. In order to support the children and their transition to school, we have arranged regular excursions to go over and engage in varies activities within the school- this includes reading stories, meeting the teachers and playing within the outdoor environments. As apart of these visits, the children also engage with the sustainability officer of the school, visiting their native bees, butterfly enclosure, worm farms, vegetable gardens and much more. This program is assisting each child make a smooth transition to their schooling years.
Here at Kallangur, we value the opportunities that the different outdoor experiences provide children and their development- in particular mud play. Not only does this encourage children to connect with the natural outdoor environment around them but also helps support their physical and mental development through experimentation.
We value the importance of providing children with nutritious and visually appealing meals throughout the day right from the moment they are introduced to food. We have a four-week rotating menu which has been developed by a qualified nutritionist. We aim to ensure that all children develop a healthy relationship with food, where they are allowed to make choices based on a variety of healthy options.
Our accredited Kindergarten Program focuses on supporting children aged between 3-5 years of age to develop their 21st Century Skills. These skills include, but are not limited to self-awareness, flexibility, innovation, lateral thinking, communication and social engagement. Our highly qualified kindergarten teachers and educators work together with the children to provide the children with tailored learning experience that foster these opportunities. The studio is made up of 2 large indoor and 1 outdoor learning environment with allow children to use autonomy while making choices for their learning.
Our large open studios allow for uninterrupted play and exploration to provide and enhance countless learning opportunities. These spaces provide children with the opportunity to discover their interests while providing a degree of challenge, whilst using real world resources. The studios run a full indoor/outdoor program throughout the day, where children can move about the two environments based on their interest and curiosity. These environments are developed in a way that enhance children’s learning.
The children at Mother Duck Kallangur, engage in both conversation and opportunity to learn about and develop their understanding of the natural environment. Our Centre has a strong approach to assisting children in seeing the process of growing their own food and using it to contribute toward their meals throughout the day. Our daily practices promote children and educators in taking an active role in fostering children’s respect and care for not only the services environment but also the wider community.
