Our Rooms

At Burns Bay Cottage we have three groups; The Emerald Group for children aged 0-2.5, The Aqua Group for children aged between 2.5-3.5 and the Crimson Group for children aged 3.5-5 years.

We believe that within a safe and nurturing environment the young child needs interesting and stimulating activities that provide a challenge to natural curiosity, excite creativity and instil a genuine love for learning.

The daily schedule at Burns Bay Cottage offers a balance between the following types of activities, which provide children with the opportunity to learn and develop and be part of a community:

  • Gross Motor and active times, as well as relaxing quiet times
  • Large group activities, small group activities and time to play alone or with others
  • Indoor/outdoor play times in their groups individual yards or rooms
  • Time for children to select their own activities
  • Structured learning and activity time based on children’s interests
  • Bonkers Beat Music & Wellbeing Program
  • Preschool/school readiness program for children entering school the following year
  • Events, excursions/incursions and extra-curricular programs
  • Child Care Subsidy registered

The centre embraces Belonging, Being and Becoming – The Early Years Learning Framework for Australia curriculum document developed by Council of Australian Governments (COAG) for children birth to five years. The framework is a foundation which guides the development of all learning experiences and advocates the collaboration between the child, centre, family and community.
