Health and Nutrition

Should you prefer, we can provide meals for your child from a weekly menu from the catering company, Allied Chef. Their chefs prepare delicious meals within the recommended daily nutritional requirements. Some choices that the children love to eat are quiche and salad, or spaghetti bolognaise. If your child has special dietary requirements or restrictions, please just inform us so we can provide suitable food taking into account allergies and cultural needs.

It’s important that young children fuel their growing bodies and minds with healthy and nutritious food, so at Milestones No 1 CBD, we support children and families in making healthy choices. We provide flyers and newsletters with information about healthy eating, and also hold informative discussions with both children and their families to make the choices easier for you. We also have some healthy lunchbox ideas on our Facebook page.

Occasionally, health professionals from our community join us to conduct eye and dental checks on the children.

Activities

We have so much indoor and outdoor space where your child can enjoy exploring and having fun. The children enjoy a private playground but also have time outside this playground with other groups. There are sensory play experiences too, with materials such as shaving cream, playdough, water and blocks. Different cultural events are also celebrated, exposing children to many different experiences outside of what they’re used to and helping them to learn in new and exciting ways.

Centre activities:

  • Vegetable gardens
  • Preschool graduation ceremony with caps and gowns
  • Looking after our chickens
  • Tending our worm farm

Annual special events:

  • Chinese New Year
  • Multicultural Week
  • Diwali Festival

Children with Additional Needs

We welcome all children with a wide variety of abilities, backgrounds or needs. If your child requires extra medical, emotional or learning support, we will tailor our care for them and work closely with you to ensure they have a smooth transition into our centre. This includes seeking support from other networks or professionals to bridge any gaps in our service delivery.

Some of the additional needs and support which can be provided at our centre include but are not limited to:

  • English as a second language
  • Autism spectrum
  • Dyslexia
  • Physical disabilities
  • Minor or serious medical conditions
  • Emotional issues

Our team cultivates a warm atmosphere of inclusion through continuous improvement and open communication. We are confident that your child will benefit from our dedicated approach to care and education.

Please speak to our staff about your child’s individual needs and how we can accommodate them.

Together we can create a plan to help them reach their full potential.

Child Safety & Welfare

All aspects of our operations are in line with the National Quality Standards and the Early Years Learning Framework. This includes our Health and Safety policy. All educators follow our health and safety policies and procedures and have access to these online.

We understand that leaving your child in someone else’s care is a difficult thing to do. We assure you that safety is our top priority and our educators follow safety practices every day.

At all times, we ensure that our centre is secure and free of hazards, both inside and out. Fire drills and UV checks are a regular part of our informed approach to safety. We emphasise safety education by creating an atmosphere of safety awareness in all aspects of the day. You will see visual safety guides around our centre, such as our sun smart posters. These tools support our lessons about safety, which we discuss as part of the curriculum. We take every opportunity to act as role models, pointing out tripping or slipping hazards and putting hats and sunscreen on for outdoor play. We talk about stranger danger so that children can build awareness and can freely talk to us if they are scared or worried. We aim to teach children to think about their own safety habitually too.
