About Our Day Care Centre
Ally’s Kindy offers the Ipswich community a family-oriented day care centre. As a privately owned centre, we strive to provide a more personal approach to our families. Our mission is based on combining detailed and specific information about your child with our own professional knowledge about children’s education and development. In this way, we strive to create a well-rounded atmosphere and a loving environment.
Government Approved Approach
The federal government has developed the ‘Early Years Learning Framework’ to ensure your child receives a quality education in an Early Childhood setting. The framework’s vision is for all children to experience play-based learning that is engaged, and builds success for life. Here at Ally’s Kindy, we believe that this is a vital time for children to learn and develop. We completely support and base our program on the framework’s vision.
Our many inspired play and learning spaces include four spacious rooms, each with their own extended verandas. Each of our rooms is designed to offer your children a greater self-selection of experiences to help them further their cognitive and physical abilities.
Our environmental classroom, worm farm, and gardens allow the children to get their hands dirty and discover their natural environment. We also have a pet guinea pig, “Ally”, who the children can feed from our gardens. Ally has been with us for the past two years and enjoys interacting with the children.
We also have three very large outdoor play areas, two of which are natural grass. Each playground is unique and offers children not only enjoyment but also challenges. Our bike track offers a social interaction setting that helps children to establish “road awareness” and feel more connected to their world.
Our sandpit, trampoline and fort areas offer many more physical and cognitive challenges. The social experiences the children encounter while here at our centre are priceless.
Dedicated and Qualified Staff
Your children are in good hands with our trained and qualified team. All of the senior educators at our day care centre hold either a Bachelor of Teaching or a Diploma in Childcare. Our other educators hold their Certificate III in Childcare or are currently studying for it.
Ally’s Kindy day care centre offers many convenient and thoughtful services for both children and their families.
Yummy and Healthy Meals
We supply our children with nutritionally balanced, home cooked meals every day. Each of our meals is made by our two experienced cooks who hold food handling certificates. Our weekly menu is on display outside our commercial kitchen but we can happily cater for any dietary requirements. Feel free to discuss your child’s needs with our kitchen staff during their hours of work.
Help with Changes
To make your day run more smoothly, we also supply nappies and wipes for your child’s toileting needs. Each room has its own individual toileting charts with information regarding your child’s changes, which is available to you at any time. We make changing time an enjoyable, positive and supportive moment, especially for those who are transitioning to our ‘big’ toilets.
Protection from the Sun
Our day care centre also makes sure your children are wearing enough sunscreen before they go out to play. We take protection from the sun seriously, offering sunscreen in each room upon arrival for families to use.
Our grounds are also made up of many shaded areas to protect the children further when they are playing outside.
Convenient Bus Service
For families that find it difficult getting to and from our day care centre, we offer a bus service for children 6 months and up. Pick up and drop off areas vary around the Ipswich area, but our bus driver is always available to answer any questions you may have about this service.
