Albury Children's Centre

Our Centres

TAFE NSW (Riverina Region) operates three Long Day Care Centres located on campus at Wagga Wagga, Narrandera and Albury.  The centres are an approved education and care service under the National Quality Framework (NQF) and cater for children aged from six weeks to school age within a smaller family-like environment.

All parents are eligible to apply for a subsidy under the Commonwealth Government for Child Care Benefit (CCB) and Child Care Rebate (CCR). Some families may also be eligible to apply for Commonwealth Government Job, Education and Training (JET) Child Care Fee Assistance.

 

Educational Programs

We incorporate current philosophies of early childhood education and learning into inclusive programs based on children’s interests and development as individuals. Our programs also involve children in self-directed experiences.

Our curriculum is based on the Early Years Learning Framework (EYLF), and focuses on outcomes for children. All learning is developed in partnership with families to ensure the interests of all are respected and observed.

 

Our Staff

Every single staff member within our centres takes immense pride in their work and is constantly striving to provide you and your child with high quality care.

TAFE NSW ensures quality care by:

  • Employing qualified and experienced staff.
  • Using the NQF as the basis of our practice.
  • Providing appropriate staff/child ratios.
  • Following educational programs based on each individual child’s development and interests.
  • Encouraging parent involvement.
  • Ensuring a safe and secure environment for your child.
  • Following strict hygiene standards.
  • Ensuring staff have current first aid certificates.
  • Training staff in asthma and anaphylaxis management.
  • Ensuring staff actively seek and participate in professional learning opportunities.

 

The Environment

Our centres have outdoor play areas where children can develop an appreciation and respect for natural environments that focus on interconnection between people, animals and the land. Also, sustainable practises are incorporated in the daily program and routines, with staff utilising and modelling all aspects – such as recycling, re-purposing, composting, water conservation and energy efficiency.
