Does your centre provide food?

Together with Kids Gourmet Food, we’re passionate about providing nutritious, delicious and healthy meals for our charges, that they absolutely love. Mealtimes are always a hit at the Clubhouse!
Does your centre provide nappies for my child?
After much research into this option for our centre, Coomera Clubhouse came to the conclusion that many parents have preferred nappy brand choices for their children. We ask parents to bring with them their preferred nappies so that their children can enjoy some comfort from home. The Clubhouse does however supply wipes.
Are your educators qualiﬁed?
Under the Education and Care Services National regulations and the Education and Care Services National Law, all of our centre staff are required to hold an approved Education and Care qualiﬁcation or be actively working towards it. All of our educators meet that requirement and all hold a blue card, ‘Queensland working with children check’, allowing them to work with children.
How do your educators manage children’s challenging behaviour in the centre?
The children are taught to be responsible for their behaviours through the use of logical consequence. For example if a child draws on a table he/she will then help to clean it up, if they were to hurt another child they will assist the educator in applying ice-packs etc. We use techniques that focus on encouraging positive behaviours so that the children learn to understand what is acceptable, desirable and what is ‘good’ behaviour.
What are your fees?
Our centre has approval for the Child Care Beneﬁt or CCB funding. This means if your family is eligible for CCB, you then pay a gap fee that is calculated based on the percentage provided to you by the Family Assistance Ofﬁce. To ﬁnd out more about your CCB and what you are entitled to, please phone Family Assistance on 136 150 or click here.
