Welcome to Mother Duck Child Care Wynnum
Our modern child care centre in Wynnum offers a natural environment and home-like atmosphere that provides a sense of belonging to children and their families. Our centre operates using the primary caregiving system for children aged 6 weeks to 3 years, to allow each child and family to form strong stable relationships with their child’s primary caregiver. The approach is supported by early childhood research and based on child development and attachment theory. On enrolment, families are given information to support a smooth and positive transition from home to care.
We’ll also be providing healthy and nutritious meals in 2021.
Our Kindergarten Aged Children attend Bush Kindy weekly to explore their local community! Bush Kindy provides opportunities for the children to respond positively to challenges and responsibilities, to manage risk, to be adaptable and to cope with change. Active outdoor learning and frequent nature play readily develops learning skills such as, enquiry, experimentation, reflection, the ability to review, communication, problem solving, and enterprising attitude and cooperative learning – just to name a few.
Our Centre’s Spacious Outdoor Café is a space where children come together to relax and socialise with their peers, siblings, and educators whilst enjoying a nutritious meal. Our accredited menu has been designed to ensure we provide the children at our centre with healthy nutritious meals daily.
Our Kindy children attend ‘Ginger Sports’ and ‘Mindfulness’ sessions each week. We have a qualified Ginger Sports Soccer coach visit the centre each Monday to equip the children with the foundational ball skills and eye foot coordination to play the sport of soccer. In addition to the physical benefits, the children learn a wide range of skills including, collaboration, teamwork and problem solving. All the children at our centre are encouraged to participate in daily mindfulness with an educator from their studio space. These mindfulness sessions provide the children with opportunities to learn more about their mind, body and feelings.
Our accredited Kindergarten Program focuses on supporting children aged between 3-5 years of age to develop 21st Century Skills. These skills include but are not limited to self-awareness, flexibility, innovation, lateral thinking, communication & Social engagement. Our highly qualified Kindergarten team of 7 includes 3 Qualified Early Childhood Teachers, 3 Diploma Qualified educators and 1 Certificate 3 qualified educator. Our Kindergarten Studio is spread over four large spaces, including a research library, Art Artilier, Building Workshop and Outdoor loose parts space, providing children with increased opportunity to develop autonomy as they make choices for their learning.
Image of child at Wynnum means that our educators recognise that our children hold intrinsic value and are deserving of our time, attention, care and commitment to providing a safe place where they can grow as individuals. The children at our centre are viewed as capable and creative, co-contributors in their learning journey. The rights of all children are upheld in all of our daily interactions across the centre, and we encourage children to be part of everyday experiences to develop their skills in being active contributors to the community.
