About Us

Our Centre

Bush Babies Childcare is privately owned and operated by Cheryl and Ian Cruwys. We are open from 7am to 6pm every weekday except public holidays and between the last working day before Christmas for 2 weeks  and New Years.

Our low (lowest in the area) fees include all meals, materials, fun and cuddles that your child is likely to need. Bush Babies Preschool is fortunate to be situated on on a small acreage in the leafy and quiet suburb of Warrimoo, just a hop, skip and jump from the railway station and John Wycliffe Christian School.

Our building has two large airy playrooms, both air conditioned for those hot summer days and chilly winter mornings. Our huge outdoor play space has many challenging activities as well as a large open area for ball games and sports. We have a veggie garden and chicken coop. Have a look at our gallery for pictures of our centre.

Young children sense their environment, so it is important that we create and maintain an atmosphere where they feel comfortable, accepted and welcome. This is also most beneficial for parents also who need to feel that their children are well looked after and that the level of care is consistent throughout the day. We recognise this and encourage parents to call in or ring any time for an update on their children.

Our Philosophy

We constantly endeavour to provide a secure, healthy, comfortable and caring environment and help the development of the individual child by providing a curriculum of activities designed to enhance the child’s self-confidence, self-esteem and sense of responsibility.

We believe in these key areas:

  • To provide the ‘highest quality care’ possible
  • To provide a warm, safe and loving environment for the children
  • To provide peace of mind for the parents
  • To stimulate and foster a positive learning experience for all children enrolled using planned and spontaneous experiences
  • To promote self-confidence, self esteem and self expression in all children
  • To promote quality time between parents and children
  • To assess and monitor each individual child’s level of progress in all areas of development and provide a tailored program to enhance development
  • To monitor the achievement of these goals and to adapt policies and procedures so that the centre continually meets the changing needs of the children, parents and the community
  • To extend ourselves to the community through involvement and visibility
  • To promote children’s autonomy as they meet individual goals suitable for school readiness

 

We foster skills in children, such as:

  • a sense of environmental awareness
  • empathy towards each other
  • cultural understanding
  • community awareness
  • life skills
