Southside Family Centre and Crèche
A place to learn, to play, to grow
The Southside Family Centre and Crèche offers a multicultural and safe environment where every child is important and valued. Our aim is to create a warm, home like environment where all children feel a sense of belonging.
We recognize that each child has unique talents, learning styles and personalities. Our highly qualified staff work with each child to offer a range of experiences that encourage their natural curiosity and creativity and help them to grow into confident and involved learners.
We offer a quality play-based early education program based on the Early Years Learning Framework (EYLF) Belonging, Being, Becoming that supports 5 key outcomes:
- Children have a strong sense of identity
- Children are connected with and contribute to their world
- Children have a strong sense of wellbeing
- Children are confident and involved learners
- Children are effective communicators
Our centre is now located onsite at Carinity Education – Southside in Sunnybank and offers many benefits for young mothers attending school, including accessible child care, family support services and easy access for breastfeeding.
All services including child care, health care, early education, transport, meals, snacks and nappies are provided free of charge to students.
The Australian Government provides financial support for this Budget Based Funded Child Care service under the Community Support Programme and the Families and Children Programme.
