                  Know how well do we do

                  A top-notch service for you!


                  BLUE LAB has gone through the NQS rating process by the Education and Care Regulatory Unit.

                  The rating measures the quality of any Early Childhood Service in Australia. It examines seven areas and scores them within a four-scale system: Needs improvement, Working Towards, Meeting, and Exceeding what is expected.

                  BLUE LAB has scored 5 Meeting and 2 Exceeding. These last ones were in Relationship with Children and Collaborative with Families, where it really matters.

                  But how good our score is? Is just good… or really good?

                  Somos bilingües | We are bilingual

                  En este Day Care hablamos en español, lo cual es genial para niños hispanoparlantes que deseen reforzar y aprender la lengua de al menos uno de sus padres.

                  We speak Spanish in this center. This is great for english-speaking kids if you want them to start learning a second language at the best possible age.

                  Philosophy

                  I believe in a Modern Reggio Emilia Approach: through play, children explore and enjoy the physical, social, emotional and intellectual world around them.

                  At Bear Hugs FDC home, I offer a safe and inviting environment with natural and open-ended resources which provoke children’s curiosity, wonder and imagination, taking into account that every resource is carefully considered for its purpose and sustainability is considered.

                  I aim to:

                  • foster early independence, by teaching children to do it themselves.
                  • provide a secure and stimulating environment that offers fun, encouragement and creativity.
                  • offer equal opportunities, regardless of cultural background, special needs, religious beliefs, or family type.
                  • encourage positive self-esteem, fostering early independence through the senses and focus on practical life and play-based learning.
                  • promote continuity of care between the children’s home and Bear Hugs FDC environments.
                  • organize multi-aged grouping to encourage peer learning, sharing, making choices and social interaction.
