Bradman Road Early Education Centre is one of Menai's best kept childcare secrets.
It is enjoyed by a wonderful community of families who thrive on the centre's incredible care and love for their children.
Parents tell us the atmosphere is much calmer, quieter and inviting than other childcare centres. That's because it's smaller in scale - smaller numbers of children where we can meet their individual needs (school readiness preparation, learning needs, social skills support, food preferences, toilet training - our team warmly supports parents with any child's specific requirements).
Families also appreciate the stability of familiar and loving faces. Our Educators have been a part of Bradman Road for many years. They are among the best in the business - loving, caring and with a genuine pride in their work. They are fully aware of every child's interests, strengths and needs, and tailor the centre's environment and programs accordingly. The team shares their knowledge, talents and diversity with the children in all learning areas including science, music and sustainability.
The centre opens from 7am-6.15pm, 51 weeks of the year.
Bradman Road has been independently assessed as a centre of high standards, achieving a rating of ‘exceeding’ the industry’s National Quality Standards. Families enjoy regular insights into their children's learning via a safe and secure communication app called Educa. Educa allows families to view and share learning stories, photos and videos, and collaborate with Educators about their child’s development, from the comfort of their phone.
Bradman Road is tucked away in a quiet suburban street and surrounded by a beautiful bush setting. The natural surrounds are used for excursions where the children experience the local environment first hand. Some of our many interactive, cultural and educational community experiences also include visits from a local dentist, fire brigade and Ranger on the Run animal encounters. All experiences are intentionally planned from children’s interests to extend their learning.
The playground is spacious, safe, incredibly well resourced and with lots of room for the children to build their physical skills and learn socialisation through play. The children enjoy the trampoline, sandpit, large bike track and balance beams, along with many other play opportunities such as climbing, games and art. There are also (supervised) opportunities to climb trees.
Our pet guinea pigs, Truffles & Coconut, are very popular with the children who love to help feed and care for them.
All Council Early Education Centres deliver a curriculum which provides children with academic and life skills education. We promote the development of language and literacy, numeracy, social and emotional skills, physical development and cognitive growth.
Bradman Road provides an eco-friendly cloth nappy service to babies and toddlers, at no additional cost to parents.
