Why choose LEAD Childcare in 2023?
LEAD Childcare has set a precedent over the last 14 years for being every child’s “home away from home”. We offer high quality early education and care in a true home away from home environment for children to enjoy, whilst they are in our care.
Flexibility for Families
We believe from as young as 6 weeks old our children are learning and adapting to the world in which they live. We also recognise how important it is for children to feel safe and secure, as they would at home.
To allow all families access to high quality early education and care we offer five different sessional bookings. These sessional bookings assist with the unpredictable nature of life. We offer 6, 8, 9, 10 and 12 hour sessions to suite many types of working households.
The Kitchen is the Heart of the Home
Our LEAD kitchen coordinator works closely with the Children’s Cook at each Service to develop individual nutritional menus for our children to enjoy five days a week. We ensure that our menu options are inclusive and respectful of all cultures and dietary requirements as well as implementing suggestions to menu changes made by our children and families.
We provide breakfast, morning tea, lunch, afternoon tea and a late snack, plus milk and water throughout the day. Our children are also involved in planting, growing, harvesting, and preparing seasonal fresh fruits and vegetables from our very own vegetable gardens throughout each Service.
Positive and Welcoming Spaces
We pride ourselves on creating enriching environments that inspire every child’s wonder and creativity. Our environments are based on our children’s learnings and interests, which differ throughout each room in each individual LEAD Childcare Service.
Across all LEAD Childcare Services, we have passionate teams of Educators who are dedicated to ensuring that every child gets the most out of their experience with us. From the moment your children are welcomed into our Services they become part of our LEAD Childcare family. Every one of our Educators are dedicated to ensuring that your children gain lifelong skills and experiences whilst being in a safe and homely environment throughout their day.
Queensland Government Kindergarten Program
Preparing your child for school through a recognised Kindergarten program can be an extremely positive stage in their educational and social development.
All LEAD Childcare Services offer a Government Approved Kindergarten program, delivered by qualified Early Childhood Teachers.
Outside School Hours Care – OSHC
All LEAD Childcare Services cater for children up to 12 years of age in our OSHC Programs. Offering extensive and inclusive programs for school aged children, to feel they have the freedom to explore and interact with children their own age, whilst being in a safe and secure environment.
The Educators that provide OSHC are equipped with the knowledge and experience to allow the children to create their own program whilst providing our children with open-ended environments and experiences.
Each of our Services offers a bus service available for all families to utilise helping reduce the hustle and bustle of before and after school pick up and drop off.
We are lucky enough to have onsite swimming pools at four LEAD Childcare Services – Burpengary, Rothwell, Mango Hill Village and Mango Hill. Our learn-to-swim lessons are 30 minutes, and we can keep the children engaged with fun, skill-based swimming, and water safety experiences. We offer 1:1 lessons for all children under the age of 3 years old, this encourages a strong development of confidence and comfort in the water. Lessons offer a positive and encouraging atmosphere where children can learn from each other while learning from our caring, qualified swim teachers.
