Stuart Park Neighbourhood Child Care Centre (SPCCC) is a community-based education and care service for families with children aged from six months to five years.
We are committed to providing high-quality service and have been an integral part of the Stuart Park community for 35 years. We also have strong ties with other services that can assist families and children.
Care and Compassion
We are committed to developing a caring and compassionate environment. By showing genuine affection and understanding for children, families and staff, we walk alongside your child on their unique and individual journey. We support children to explore the world around them and we nurture their natural curiosity using play-based learning.
“I like coming to childcare because I get to play with my friends and learn about food.” – Theodore
We recognise each family’s unique history, background and traditions and strive to foster an accepting and inclusive environment. We work together with families to acknowledge and explore the differences and similarities between children. We provide opportunities for families to share their knowledge and skills. This helps children to feel a sense of belonging and understanding of their place in the world.
“You can’t fault it. Children are loved, respected and learn.” – Kristina
We see ourselves as guides in young children’s learning and we believe that ‘the world is not left to us by our parents; it is lent to us by our children’. We make purposeful and deliberate decisions and gently reinforce our collective responsibilities as citizens.
“I feel proud of my job and I feel I’m taken care of in my workplace.” – Gyeongae
We value communication as a way to build relationships and foster a sense of trust, truthfulness and respect. We communicate openly and frequently to create a sense of community and shared understanding. We value the expertise of our community.
“It is a warm and friendly environment filled with love and respect.” – Annie
We believe in the power of connection. We strive to create a space where all people are valued and respected.
“The vibe is wonderful. It feels like walking into home.” – Kristina
