Hi my name is Ellise Mallett and I am the Centre Manager for LEAD Childcare Caboolture. Being a wife of 20 plus years and a mother to 2 beautiful young women I believe that family is the most important thing in the world. We have developed an environment that is both educational and nurturing for the most important members of your family, your children.
l have been involved in the childcare industry my entire life, initially starting my career as an assistant in Alice Springs and more recently as a director in Gympie for over 11 years. I bring a professional and positive attitude that empowers educators to provide the highest quality of care at all times and inspires everyone to belong to the LEAD Childcare family.
At LEAD Caboolture we care for children from six weeks through to 12 years including before and After School Care programs and Vacation Care. We provide all meals for children (morning tea, lunch and afternoon tea) based on a menu prepared by our onsite cook to Australian Nutritional Standards. We have three large natural outdoor play areas that will captivate your child’s interest, imagination and encourage them to discover the world around them. The service also has a separate Kindergarten and schoolies area.
We embrace the National Quality Standards and strive to promote a day filled with fun, laughter and learning. Our passionate Educators are committed to sharing the children’s learning with parents and the community and therefore understand the vital link between home and care and will work to ensure they build strong relationships.
This is made simpler through our intuitive Storypark platform, which enables us to maintain consistent and clear communications with families. That means we are better placed to support a child in their learning journey, ensure parents have peace of mind, and time stamp the children’s developments, milestones and achievements.
Our programs are developed in line with the Early Years Learning Framework and the National Quality Standards. We deliver a curriculum, where Educators hold the philosophy that children are strong, capable, competent and curious learners. Our educators view children as individuals within a group and they are encouraged to share their experiences, ideas, theories and curiosities. The educators use intentional teaching moments to guide their programs and the voice of each individual child’s learning interests.
Our experienced and dedicated passionate Early Childhood Teacher that delivers our Government Approved Kindergarten Program. The program focuses on the Queensland Kindergarten Learning Guidelines and operates Monday to Friday from 8am - 4:30pm. The children develop lifelong social skills, confidence and resilience along with early literacy and numeracy concepts through games, art, music and real-life experiences.
The service has an open-door policy and we welcome visitors, our families and new enrolments alike, our operation hours are Monday to Friday 6:30am-6:30pm. Please contact our Centre to arrange an appointment to showcase the wonderful learning we have to offer here at LEAD Caboolture.
See you soon,
Ellise and the team at LEAD Caboolture.
