Fauna Place is a smaller-scale centre tucked away in a beautiful bush setting in Kirrawee.
The smaller numbers of children (maximum 44) ensures we meet each child's individual needs. We warmly support parents with each child's specific requirements. With smaller numbers, each Educator knows all of the children well - their interests, strengths and needs. Families place great value on the quality relationships and interactions we foster with them and their children.
Families also enjoy the centre's strong community feel, forming strong connections and friendships with other families across the centre.
Our centre is led by a highly experienced Director with more than 17 years' experience in early education and care. She is well versed in learning theories and practice and is extremely passionate and knowledgeable on children’s learning curriculums. Such is her passion for quality care and education, she has visited world renowned early education services in Reggio Emilia Italy, known for their early childhood philosophies.
Our Educators are a diverse group who all bring something unique to the service. Their individual talents and specialties help to create a very engaging and dynamic learning curriculum. We place the highest priority on creating positive, supportive and respectful relationships with the children as we nurture them through their learning and development.
We provide children with an academic and life skills education program. We promote the development of language and literacy, numeracy, social and emotional skills, physical development and cognitive growth. Many parents want to see their child write their name and hear them count and our curriculum provides children with the platform to develop these types of skills, along with many others.
The children have daily opportunities to participate in our school readiness program. Children are provided with their own learning books to develop practical skills regarding preparation for school. For example, children learn to practice writing their name, recognise letters and learn number patterns and sequencing objects. Children are also given the opportunity to participate in social and cultural events and learn about the world surrounding them during these activities.
Families enjoy regular insights into their children's learning via a safe and secure communication app called Educa. Educa allows families to view and share learning stories, photos and videos, and collaborate with Educators about their child’s development, from the comfort of their phone.
Our centre opens from 7am-6.15pm, 51 weeks of the year.
We provides an eco-friendly cloth nappy service to babies and toddlers, at no additional cost to parents.
All meals are supplied at our centre and are prepared fresh daily by our onsite cook.
