Branyan Families Daycare Centre

Parent Information

At Branyan Early Learning Centre, we connect care with education by following the Early Years Learning Framework (EYLF) and Queensland Kindergarten Learning Guidelines (QKLG). Our team identifies what each child’s interests are, and works to scaffold their current knowledge into new learnings, all through play!

Motivated by educational philosophies, our service focuses on:

  • Supporting families and children
  • The role of educators
  • Beautiful learning environments
  • Engaging local community connections
  • Embedding sustainability

Children are empowered to investigate and explore in a supportive and rich environment, where the curriculum is built around the children’s interests. Every child is unique. Every child is valued.

Community

Branyan Early Learning Centre acknowledges the Traditional Custodians of the land on which our childcare service is established and their continuing connection to land, sea and community. Branyan Early Learning Centre also pays respect to Elders past and present. We support our educators to insert their views into our educational practices, so their language and culture are accessible to all children. We promote the advancement of close, open and respectful ties with the local Branyan community and elders.

The Environment

Branyan Early Learning Centre is a purpose-built service that aims to be the most reliable and to set new standards for early education and care in the area. Our dynamic, environment is sensitive to children and promotes communication, links to nature, play and collaboration. Children are our number one focus.

We see the children in our care thrive, develop, and reach their own learning goals when given an interesting learning environment. The environments we provide are interesting, engaging and inspire children into more profound learning experiences. We encourage family participation, during day-to-day learning, community events, incursions and excursions. Our landscaped playgrounds are spaces for the children to explore while engaging in meaningful play with friends.

Sustainability

Sustainability in early childhood education is an essential part of our curriculum and our everyday practice. Equipping children with foundations and knowledge, enables them to acquire a sense of duty and to be active members in the journey for sustainability. Sustainability is embedded throughout the centre – we have a vegetable patch, worm farms, water world, and interactive and engaging yards to enhance learning throughout the day.

Sustainability is often thought of as reducing waste, minimising consumption, and protecting and conserving wildlife and natural habitats. It can also be deemed as being able to meet our modern needs without infringing on the strength of future generations to meet their requirements. Today’s children are the first of those future generations, and we take seriously the responsibility of teaching them the importance of preserving their environment.

Meals

Our menus are written based on the most up-to-date knowledge from sources like Feed Australia, the Australian Dietary Guidelines for Children and Adolescents, the Australian Infant Feeding Guidelines and Nutrition Australia. We follow the highest standards of food safety and hygiene practices throughout the service. The team is offered regular professional development to assure that they meet these conditions in their daily practices. Meals incorporate various vegetables and fruit with a focus on low added sugar and unsaturated fats.

Menus are alternated frequently to expand young appetites, and we cater to a diversity of dietary and cultural requirements. Our service is nut-free, and our premises and procedures comply with all food safety regulations. A nutritious diet is essential for children’s growth, so we make sure to provide meals that deliver children all the nutrients and energy they need. Children love to eat together, so mealtimes are always fun!
