Why Choose Us?
They say it takes a village to raise a child. At Red Apple, we are your village. Being based in a house, we strive to provide your child with a safe and caring environment – just like home.
The Red Apple Promise: 9 Principles That Guide Our Early Learning Program
1. High-quality child care
We are 100% committed to delivering the best childcare program possible. Being a small centre, we are able to cater to individual needs, recognising the strengths and requirements of each child.
2. Nutritious meals
We are proud to have a chef on-site to whip up fresh and healthy meals for the children. Our menus are designed in consultation with Nutrition Australia to ensure they meet national standards.
3. Innovative curriculum
Our curriculum is designed to teach children 21st-century skills such as problem-solving, collaboration, critical thinking and creativity. We make education fun, providing the perfect mix of free play and guided learning.
4. Stimulating environment
Every section of a Red Apple centre is carefully designed to create a sense of wonder and discovery for your child. We want Red Apple to be your child’s happy place, where they are free to play, learn and explore in a safe environment.
5. Qualified educators
All the educators in our team are highly experienced in the early childhood field and bring unique skills and knowledge to the team. We have very low staff turnover and believe in the continued professional development of our staff.
6. Community connections
Through excursions to the local community such as the neighbourhood supermarket, post office, police station and aged care village, the children learn how society works, creating a sense of wellbeing and belonging.
7. Focus on sustainability
We are constantly trying to improve our carbon footprint through a variety of sustainability programs such as worm farms, composting, recycling, saving water, and growing our own vegetables in the garden.
8. Diversity and inclusion
The Red Apple family is a rich and vibrant blend of cultures. While Australian and Aboriginal history is an important part of our program we also celebrate the different cultures of our families such as Chinese New Year, Eid, Greek Easter and Diwali.
9. Collaboration with families
Red Apple Early Learning Centre is your early learning centre. We are always open to parent feedback and suggestions. Parents are welcome to contribute to our learning programs through story-telling, songs or sharing any other activity of interest.
