UnitingCare Dove Cottage is a long day care centre, catering for children aged 0-6 years. We are located in the multicultural area of Bankstown and embrace the diversity of the area in the children, families and staff that are a part of our service. The preschool room provides a transition to school program. Through play-based learning experiences, we prepare children for their exciting transition to primary school.
Dove Cottage provides nutritionally balanced meals and a culturally varied selection of meals catering for the diversity of the children attending the centre. We have highly trained, experienced and motivated educators and we operate on above government standard staff-to-child ratios. Our indoor environment reflects a warm and welcoming atmosphere. Our large outdoor areas are surrounded by beautiful gardens, which allow children to explore and get up close to the natural environment.
We take pride in the rich learning environment we provide, which is highly reflective of the Early Years Learning Framework. Our program is responsive to and engages each child, as we embrace their interests and strengths, leading to their holistic development, care and education. We respect, value and incorporate family feedback and input into our program which benefits the children and assists with the quality care and service we provide.
