Greengables is a family run, long day care centre in Kingsford. We offer care for children 2 to 6 years, with two classrooms. The children are separated into 3 groupings, according to age. We offer a play interest based program, as well as a strong preschool school readiness program. The children engage in various group times and experiences both indoors and outdoors. We have two outdoor yards, allowing for a number of physical activities to take place. The preschool room also has a languages program, learning Mandarin and Greek. In 2017 we won the Randwick City Council Business Excellence Award for Outstanding Child Care Service. We pride ourselves on involving our families and communities, participating in several community events each year. In 2018 we had an Aboriginal artist come and transform our carpark with an Aboriginal mural.
The powerful ‘Reggio Emilia’ style education system is for children between the ages of 6 months to 6 years. Their philosophy is inspired by the educational practices and beliefs of Loris Malaguzzi and Reggio Emilia, and their curriculum follows methodologies laid out by the Early Years Learning Framework.
