View Full Version : Child Care Centres
I am fairly new to Canberra and I was wondering if anyone from Canberra have any recommendations for really good child care centres around Tuggeranong?? At this stage I need to put Bub in childcare at 12 months old.
Hi my name is shannan and I worked in daycare in the ACT before my mat leave!
Try Greenway CCC- tuggeranong
Thomas the tank- Bonython
Gordon ECCC- Gordon
Lanyon CCC- brand new- Conder
Salem CCC- Kambah
Any of the communities at work centre- various Southside
Best of luck Amy-
Try to get your name on a few waiting lists as the wait is varied at the moment.
Can't offer any childcare centres as I am in the same boat as you - I'm moving to ACT in Feb06.
Hope all goes well and maybe we can talk more when I move there :)
Thanks Shannon - I have heard a few good things about Greenway so I will look into that. It's so hard to even think about goin gback to work eventually and even worse trying to find a good place to leave your child :eek:
Being in Childcare yourself what are some questions or even things to look out for when looking for the right one?
Hi DMAREE, thank you for your little note. Are you moving to Canberra for work or just a lifestyle change? Where are you moving from?
Look with your heart! If you feel comfortable with the staff team that is the main point! Staff who interact with the children, seem quite happy to be at work etc!!!
Ask their policies on siick children, behaviour managment, parent imput into the program! That will give you a basic overview of the place...
Also be sneaky and wander past the yards over a few days (when the children are outside playing) that way you can see interactions and how comfortable the children are with the staff!!!
Best of luck with it all- and if you have any questions feel free to PM me...
