Our Centre Routine
Our centre is involved with after care communities. Qualified and trained coaches, instructors, attend the centre with innovative programs. Some of these programs are -Tony soccer coach, Yogini dance, Bricks for kids, Dance, Cartooning, Go play, Scootering, Stem classes, Cricket coach and Art classes.
We aim to develop and implement a balanced program that is stimulating, interesting and exciting which allows opportunities for children to play, explore and develop new skills and is appropriate to the development and leisure needs of all children. Parents and children are encouraged to be actively involved in the planning, implementation and evaluation of the program.
The BPCC offers a multitude of outdoor activities including organised sport and free play as well as an excellent range of outdoor equipment. For children selecting indoor activities there are many toys and games to choose from. Craft and learning opportunities are run every day.
These learning opportunities are focused on children’s selected interests. The crafts, activities and learning opportunities are based around the educational program which is evaluated and replanned each week by a dedicated programming team. The BPCC aims to meet the broad range of each child’s social, emotional, recreational, physical, intellectual and creative needs in a safe, supportive and homelike environment.
Daily and weekly activities and menus are displayed at the centre. Parents & Carers are welcome to discuss their child’s involvement at the centre with our Educators. Photo’s are linked to our learning Outcomes each session.
Every day we provide our children with a healthy breaky on the go and afternoon tea. The BPCC caters for varying dietary requirements. The BPCC is a nut-free centre and families should be aware that there are children in attendance at the centre with severe food allergies that can cause anaphylaxis.
