We strive to provide high quality, developmental childcare services for children aged newborn to 6 years. Our well-qualified and caring staff work cooperatively with parents to support the overall development of every child. The Dewey Childcare House (DCH) program is designed to meet each child’s unique, individual needs in a language-rich, multi-cultural setting. Our focus is on the development of the whole child in preparation for a successful transition to school. Each day, children at DCH have opportunities to actively engage in a variety of learning experiences designed to foster cognitive, social-emotional, and physical growth and development.
Children in our nursery classes are usually between 2 and half years to 4 years of age. Our nursery students have beautiful large purpose-designed area where they rotate through fun educational activities with teachers who specialise in a wide variety of different areas, ‘art and craft’ and ‘oral language and stories’ to name only two!
Our Preschool caters for students aged 4 or 5 and prepares them for the more formal learning of our Kindergarten Program. Pre-schoolers are introduced to the concept of formalised classrooms and a more structured learning environment, while providing them with engaging age-appropriate activities.
