What Is The Child Care Benefit ?
Monday, 11 April 11 2016
Child Care Benefit is a payment from the Australian Government that helps you with the cost of your child care.
You can get CCB if you are a parent, foster parent or grandparent with a child in your care who is attending child care services approved by, or registered with, the Government.
We are a local, family owned & operated Gold Coast Montessori Early Learning Child Care Centre. So many other Child Care centres on the Gold Coast are corporate owned or listed on the Australian Stock Exchange. We are about educating the children not the stock holders.
To be honest with you, I started my own Child Care Centre because, as a parent I could not find a centre for my then
two and a half year old daughter, that offered the loving, caring and clean environment in which to learn with real outcomes.
I wanted the best education for my child as every parent would! I will explain... calm, well mannered, engaged, motivated and educated children that can read on their own and are prepared for their future education in Primary school and beyond. This is what I wanted.
I realised the only way I could get this for my daughter and other families that felt the same concerns and needs was to start my own child care centre and build the learning environment model and outcomes from scratch.
I embraced the Montessori Method because I saw the best long term benefits for infants and children right through life. I trained my staff to my personal expectations and now we deliver these and make them available to you! We have been providing the very best to Gold Coast families since 2006, with an honest, respectable and reliable service.
I created this Montessori Child Care Centre at Mudgeeraba to give my own children and your child the best possible start in life!
With our new baby born August 2015, we are reaffirming our commitment to providing what our children need to provide them with the very best start we can.
Some Centres said they were "influenced by Montessori" with a few tray activities - that is not the real Montessori so don't be fooled into thinking it is.
My centre is staffed with double qualified educators - both in "Montessori" and "Australian Children’s Services".
Be aware of the fact that the word Montessori is not patented and anyone can use it. Thus, the use of the word Montessori is no assurance of quality.
"We don’t just talk Montessori, we live and breathe it". It’s important to keep up with the "World of Montessori"
