The Educators and Committee of Endeavour Child Care welcome you to our Centre.   

We provide care for children aged 6 weeks to 5 years with a maximum of 55 children per day.


Our aim is to provide quality of care for all children.  We offer them a safe and engaging environment and a place where they feel empower and nurtured to grow.

The team is guided by our service director, educational leader and supported by a Bachelor of Early Childhood Education Teacher who uphold the highest quality standards in educating little minds. Our staff are fully first aid certified and are either working towards their qualification or hold a Certificate III or higher in Early Childhood Education and Care.

 

At Endeavour Childcare Centre we believe:

CHILDREN

  • All children are made to feel as though others care about them, know them well and are interested in what they think, say and do. “A home away from home”.

  • We build on each child’s self-esteem developing warm, patient, trusting and respectful relationships.

  • The environment is relaxed and happy – Educators sit alongside and talk with the children.

  • Educators express ideas, feelings and humour with the children.
