Smart Tots Childcare Centre in Alexandra Hills
Smart Tots is a new state-of-the-art long day care centre that opened its doors in July 2016. The service is approved to cater for children from 6 weeks to 6 years of age. Conveniently located next to the Alexandra Hills Shops, this beautiful purpose-built centre boasts 5 spacious fully air-conditioned classrooms, secure restricted access and 3 outdoor play areas including a cycle track. As the centre was designed with little learners in mind, it is furnished with child sized amenities and furniture as well as a wide range of age-appropriate resources. The centre is open 5 days a week from Mon-Fri from 6.30am to 6.30pm, and is closed on public holidays.
Professional, caring team of staff
A key differentiator of the service provided at Smart Tots, as expressed by parents in reviews left on Google, is the high level of care and support experienced by families who have their children enrolled in the centre. All educators employed by the centre have either a Certificate III or Diploma in Childcare and the kindergarten program is run by a bachelor certified teacher in early education. Staff are also trained in first-aid including anaphylactic and asthma. The relaxed and friendly atmosphere in the centre is evident the moment you walk in. The team prides itself on the relationships it has built with families and children.
Focus on holistic learning through play
Central to the Smart Tots philosophy is that children are naturally curious and discover the world around them through play. As a result, every activity is seen as an opportunity to learn. To support this every effort is made by staff to provide an enjoyable child-centred learning environment that contributes to the physical, personal, social, and emotional well-being of the children, in addition to cognitive development. Consequently, the approach to learning at Smart Tots integrates literacy, numeracy, arts, crafts, music, rest and relaxation, and outdoor play. One of the aims is to instil behaviours that are valued by the community such as respect for others and for cultural diversity.
Nutritional meals included in daily fee
Active growing bodies need healthy food for fuel. Bearing this in mind, fresh nutritious meals are prepared daily at Smart Tots by the centre cook. A range of delicious meals are included on the menu to encourage children to develop healthy eating habits. Morning and afternoon tea is included in the daily fee at no extra charge. Meal times are used to teach socializing, sharing and hygiene. Children are given support with serving food and transitioned to feeding themselves when they are ready.
