A very warm welcome to our website and I hope that the information you find here offers you a clear insight into our philosophy, vision and practices at Gumnut Cottage. Our professional team and committed Management Committee aim to offer you and your family high quality, affordable and flexible child care within a stimulating, creative and age appropriate educational program. Our highly dedicated and talented team will provide a caring, nurturing and creatively stimulating environment that will enhance your child’s learning and development as they interact with their peers and educators throughout the day. We promote discovery/play based learning opportunities within an environment that encourages engagement, exploration, imagination, problem solving, resilience, empathy, and a sense of wonder and respect for the environment and community.

We actively promote an open door policy at Gumnut Cottage and encourage families and siblings to come and join us at any time. As a team, we are very keen to develop strong partnerships with our families and love you to stay and have morning tea, lunch or afternoon tea when time permits. Experience tells us how much pleasure and excitement children exhibit when they share their play spaces with their families so feel free to stay and join in our fun, or take the opportunity of spending time with us during one of our many family events throughout the year.

Thank you for taking the time to visit our website and please feel free to drop in or call at any time. It would be a pleasure to show you around our centre and answer any questions you may have.

I look forward to meeting you.

Kind regards

Maddie Hayes
Director/Nominated Supervisor
