Every child is unique and each develops at a different rate.

That’s why Brisbane City Child Care has created a flexible approach to playroom grouping so your child will be placed with peers at a similar stage. Children at Brisbane City Child Care are in small groups based on their developmental stage.

We combine all aspects of the Early Years Learning Framework in a wide array of activities every day.

Curriculum

Babies to Pre-walkers – ‘Joeys’

We understand how important it is for babies to have routine. When your little one comes to Brisbane City Child Care, together with you, we create their daily schedule together to reflect their home routine. Along their journey, achievements are celebrated and documented against the ‘Early Years Learning Framework’.

Toddlers – ‘Koalas’

Toddlers enjoy a range of fun activities during play designed to help them discover themselves, form friendships and acquire essential skills for life. Toddlers have their own playgrounds with soft surfaces and climbing walls to really help them learn and explore their natural abilities.

Pre-kindy – ‘Possums’

Our pre-kindy kids are inspired by days full of educational activities which help develop their language and problem solving skills. Learning to work in a group whilst forming friendships and developing social skills prepares your child for kindy and school ahead.

Kindy kids – ‘Kangaroos’
(Kindergarten Approved Program)

We are an approved childcare centre and kindergarten all in one. We run the Queensland Government Kindergarten Program within our long day care service. Kindy is taught by qualified Early Childhood Teachers and incorporates play-based learning to instil a love of learning, to create friendships, and develop life-skills in preparation for school.

Incursions & Services

Music Lessons

Children of all ages in each of our rooms can experience the Do-Re-Me music for children program.

Music learning and early childhood go hand in hand. Music develops the child’s mind, body, and spirit simultaneously. Participating in music activities engages the natural learning cycle of play, discovery, repetition, and mastery. Our aim is to immerse children in a musical world of discovery.

Infants who are exposed to music with assisted movement will remember and later demonstrate their learning when they reach the age of independent movement and speech.

Toddlers who are struggling with single syllable words will often sing complete phrases and those learning to walk spontaneously begin to dance.

French Lessons

Approved kindergarten program children can experience French through the Play Frog program. Teaching a foreign language to preschool age children is important because the best time for a child to learn another language is in the 1st three to five years of life.

Ants in Your Pants

Ants in Your Pants is a multi-sports program designed to develop your child’s physical, psychological and social attributes, as well as having fun and learning new skills.  The classes allow children to explore a variety of sports within their relevant age group on a four-week rotational basis, including cricket, tennis, rugby and more.

Children’s Yoga

Yoga helps children develop body awareness, learn how to use their bodies in a healthy way, manage stress through breathing, awareness, meditation and healthy movement, as well as build concentration and increase their confidence and positive self-image.

Ocean Life Show

Ocean Life Education ‘Brings the Sea to You’ with fun marine education programs designed to inspire preschool children to appreciate and take responsibility for the marine ecosystem.

It is an interactive touch and learn session introducing children to creatures from the ocean, with live marine creatures to touch as well as shells and pictures to look at.

Art Show

Held annually for our Kindergarten program, the children learn self-expression, attention to detail, perception, and best of all are immensely proud of achievements.

Veggie Gardening

Gardening provides an educational experience for children to learn how to plant, grow and harvest fresh fruit and veggies. In a unique garden space on our rooftop playground, the kids can get dirty while developing a set of new skills including the responsibility to care for their crops, understanding cause and effect, and exploring a love for nature.

Henny Penny – Chicken Farm

As human beings we are naturally curious, which makes the whole experience of watching that first, tiny, bedraggled chick stumbling out of its shell, fascinating to all. For children in particular, these observations become a major point of discussion. Henny penny prompts a series of shared experiences which they can verbalise to enhance communication on all levels.

Dance Classes

Exercise and movement is key in the development of every child. Through dance, children can develop a greater range of movement, fitness, flexibility, hand eye coordination and just have heaps of fun with their friends.

Haircuts

On a regular basis, the lovely team from Milk Hair will take bookings online to come to BCCC and cut your child’s hair, in the comfort of their room.

Excursions 3 – 5yrs

GOMA trips and Out of the Box festival to stimulate the creative mind. Trips to the park just because we love getting out in the great outdoors.

End of Year Concert

A chance for children and their families to celebrate a year of learning and fun.
