Browns Plains Child Care Centre is a play-based child care centre and our aim is to create a safe and nurturing place for kids to grow and have fun. Through hands on discovery and exploration, we provide high quality, developmentally appropriate education for children.
Play is vital to healthy development in children and being creative is more than drawing or painting. Creative play increases their social competence and emotional maturity, language and literacy development, physical development, and cognitive development.
At Browns Plains Child Care Centre, our commitment is to children. By maintaining a warm and friendly atmosphere where children are encouraged and respected, we believe that we have created the perfect balance of structure and freedom of expression to create the foundation for future success.
The curriculum of our programs is based on the Australian Government’s Early Years Learning Framework and our Kindergarten Program is approved by the Queensland Government’s Office of Early Childhood Education and Care. It's no secret that kindergarten programs give children a flying start to learning and life.
We aim to ensure the children in our care become confident and creative individuals and active and informed learners.
Our two university qualified early childhood teachers have developed programs which offer children the highest standard of early childhood education. Our curriculum leads children through a range of exciting and challenging and creative activities, building on the important role parents play as their child's first educators.
Second Language Program
We teach children a second language that helps with brain development and lays the foundation for life long educational achievement with the impact greatest the earlier the language is learnt. It doesn't really matter what language a child learns or even if they don't become fluent, what's important is the different way of looking at the world, opens to diverse concepts and critical thinking that learning a second language provides.
Advantages of your child learning another language
We include a fun soccer program at our centre as part of our program for children 2 to 5 years on a weekly basis. Through creative activities, we encourage a positive, nurturing, and safe environment for those who take part. Soccer is a great physical sport for children to learn coordination and teamwork in an environment that is energetic and positive.
As children enter kindergarten, it is important that they continue to have access to a computer center with a library of developmentally appropriate software. Children need opportunities to make choices about some of their computer experiences. At Browns Plains Child Care Centre our kindergarten teachers use the computer lab for more directed activities that match their learning objectives.
