Activities

Outside, we have a beautiful shaded playground with an exciting water park and a chicken coup. Inside, we enhance your child’s innate curiosity and essential learning skills with exciting educational resources and toys. Children love role-play games and these are a great way to stimulate their imagination and inventiveness, so we have a dress-up corner and lots of other role-play props.

At Tadpoles Cashmere, we plan thoughtful activities to extend your child’s learning experiences. Some of our centre activities include:

  • Chicken coup
  • Sports
  • Music and movement programs by Funtastic Creations

We also host annual special events so that your child can embrace and explore diversity and multiculturalism every day. Some examples include:

  • ANZAC Day
  • NAIDOC Week
  • Chinese New Year
  • St Patrick’s Day
  • Multicultural week
  • Other cultural events that children are interested in and celebrate at home
  • Charity events and fundraisers, including collecting and making items for Sistahood to support homeless women of Brisbane
  • Father’s Day and Mother’s Day

Children with Additional Needs

We welcome all children with a wide variety of abilities, backgrounds or needs. If your child requires extra medical, emotional or learning support, we will tailor our care for them and work closely with you to ensure they have a smooth transition into our centre. This includes seeking support from other networks or professionals to bridge any gaps in our service delivery.

Some of the additional needs and support which can be provided at our centre include but are not limited to:

  • English as a second language
  • Autism spectrum
  • Dyslexia
  • Physical disabilities
  • Minor or serious medical conditions
  • Emotional issues

Our team cultivates a warm atmosphere of inclusion through continuous improvement and open communication. We are confident that your child will benefit from our dedicated approach to care and education.

Please speak to our staff about your child’s individual needs and how we can accommodate them.

Together we can create a plan to help them reach their full potential.

Child Safety & Welfare

All aspects of our operations are in line with the National Quality Standards and the Early Years Learning Framework. This includes our Health and Safety policy. All educators follow our health and safety policies and procedures and have access to these online.

We understand that leaving your child in someone else’s care is a difficult thing to do. We assure you that safety is our top priority and our educators follow safety practices every day.

At all times, we ensure that our centre is secure and free of hazards, both inside and out. Fire drills and UV checks are a regular part of our informed approach to safety. We emphasise safety education by creating an atmosphere of safety awareness in all aspects of the day. You will see visual safety guides around our centre, such as our sun smart posters. These tools support our lessons about safety, which we discuss as part of the curriculum. We take every opportunity to act as role models, pointing out tripping or slipping hazards and putting hats and sunscreen on for outdoor play. We talk about stranger danger so that children can build awareness and can freely talk to us if they are scared or worried. We aim to teach children to think about their own safety habitually too.
