Southport Catholic Parish Child Care Centre
Southport Catholic Parish Child Care Centre opened in 2007 in partnership between Southport Catholic Parish and Centacare Child Care Services.
Situated alongside Guardian Angels Primary School and Guardian Angels Out of School Hours Care Service, our service is licenced for 50 children.
- 15 months – 3 years: Toddler room
- 2 – 4 years: Junior Kindy
- 3 – 5 years: Qld Government Approved Kindergarten program
A qualified Kindergarten teacher oversees the Kindergarten program and works closely with local primary schools to support the children’s transition to school.
At Southport Catholic Parish Child Care Centre we value the early childhood years and the importance of a play based curriculum to support children’s development and learning. Using a holistic approach we focus on children’s interests, strengths and abilities to enhance each child’s individual development, to build the foundations for long life learning. Through positive and encouraging guidance, with rich and engaging environments and experiences children will be given the opportunity to be active participants in their learning. In the course of enquiry, experimentation, investigation, problem solving and practicing new skills children will build a strong identity and an enthusiasm for learning.
Our service provides morning and afternoon tea. A late snack will also be provided by the centre for children that are in care after 4.45pm.
Families are to provide a packed lunch.
Our morning and afternoon tea recipes have been assessed by Nutrition Australia Queensland based on the required dietary requirements for children aged 0 – 5 years
